Was out yesterday. Super windy. Caught 1 laker, too small and had only a few bites. Where have the fish gone?

Use sonar, drilled and marked all fish over 12 hint When you mark a fish do a retrieval at good speed first or match speed of fish

Ice fished Spray often over past 30 years. Not at all the same lake in last 3 years. Either poached or fished out. It's like a village on the ice on weekends now. Alberta Hunting, Fishing and Trapping mag. mostly to blame for saying it's the go to lake for Lakers. Still a lovely lake to get out on.

Had the zodiac out on Spray today with the family. Didn't catch anything. It was stupid windy and very hard to enjoy! Seems to me that the reservoir is extremely low. Will try again on another weekend and hope it's not windy.

Hi Blackhawks,smelt is allowed as bait and is your best bet.Make sure they are not minnows as that will result in a fine.

Hello lads and lassies! I want to take the kids out there in mid-June to camp and fish out of a canoe. Any pros out there with advice on where to fish and what bait to use? I understand that live fish bait is not allowed. Anyone have any luck with worms? Any advice would be very much appreciated!

Fished for a few hours opposite of boat launch in 63" of water. 3.5' of ice. Maybe one nibble. Close to a foot of snow makes for hard walking.

Was out today from 8am to 4pm. Only one laker bite in 90 ft of water. Quite a few fish on the fish finder but they didn't seem interested in anything we were offering. Went closer to shore at around noon to try for whitefish. Couple nibbles but nothing landed. Tons of people out on the ice. Not sure how successful anyone else was.
