So far this month there are some reports of large pickerel being caught at French and Maquapit Lakes. There has been a couple of 10-12 inch brook trout caught on Grand Lake. Smelt catching is off to a slow start with just a few being caught so far. There have been a few burbot caught in some of the coves but things are just getting started on the hard water in our area. We just got some good ice and then we were hit with a big storm that slowed the fishing down a bit. I'll have more to report next month when the fishing gets a bit better and the tournaments start.
I do have a photo of a nice ice fishing print I picked up recently. I get these prints whenever I can because there aren't many of them around. This print is from the 1930's or thereabouts.
