Darling Ice

A buddy and I went out to darling last night and sat up at grano 300yds south of the bridge on the east side. The ice is over 6" and was as clear as could be. Saw one walleye on the camera. The area under the bridge is still open and the west side by the road is too, plum full of geese. Fished 8'-12' with tip-ups and jigs and no bites. Going to give it another try this weekend!

Has anyone tried fishing below the dam yet, perch usually hit there early ice.

If it flies it dies!

We were out from about 3:00 to about 6:00pm. We went just a little north of the ranger station tonight and fished the same hours without marking a single fish! Bleh! I talked to another group that was out there and they didn't have any bites either. Fished 7'-14' with tip-ups and jigs. I think I will try grano again someday. Good luck!


This is my BOOMSTICK!!!

Lake Darling is a waste of time, money and energy right now. You won't catch much if anything out of that reservoir. But if you do catch something, it will be a bigger fish. There are some nice pike and walleye laying in there. Trouble is, not much action at all during the summer or winter. You will be better off if you drive to other lakes. Stizo :)
