Good morning on s end of Lost Island Lake. Crappies and small walleyes at the entrance and inside of the canal. White and yellow bass outside the inlet channel that ...more comes in from the marsh. Good fishing right now.
Slow couple hours - front coming through. Triboji Lagoon NW corner West Okoboji. DNR owns it so docks are private but they have to allow fishermen. Can catch bluegills ...more bass yellow bass and crappies around the docks or casting towards the island. Good every Spring. Soon the private docks will go out on the lakeside - also open to the public - you will see a small sign on each dock noting this. Water temp 45-50. Catch and release most days.
Caught a ton of bluegills with wax worms on a small jig under a bobber. Bobber needs to stay from edge of fishing pier to 3 feet out or so. If you cast 10 feet away ...more you may not catch many bluegills - at least now. Some were using wrigglers. Great spot if you have young kids who want to catch fish. Guy caught a 12 plus inch crappie so I tried it. Crappie minnows for him and a few others. Good time to go right now. Bluegills bit great last hour before sunset. Some keeper size.
Off the ramp across from Kum n Go gas station. Ice along shore softening up. 14 fow. Bite turns on about an hour before sunset and goes 30 minutes or so after. 30 ...more or so people out. Season winding down. Mostly due to safe access. Perch bluegills crappies small walleyes and yellow bass. East Okoboji
Ice along the shore is getting iffy. If you go be careful. RR Trestle parking lot between e and w Okoboji seemed like a good spot to park. East Okoboji side - people ...more between 8 fow and 14 for most part. Couple way out in middle. Saw people with bluegills and crappies. I caught perch - yellow bass and a small walleye. 3-8 pm. Flasher helps a lot.
Not fast action but a crappie - 2 yellow bass and a perch at Lost Island Lake this afternoon. 530 - 830 walked on at edge of boat ramp next to the beach. Went out ...more about 100 yards to 8 fow. 10 inches of crusted over partially melted snow on top. 18 inches of ice or so. Saw nobody else out.
