Fresno is 22% full. There is 18” and more ice in most areas. Fish the basin areas in about 20’ jigging or tip-ups with salted minnows for results. Saturday is the annual ice fishing tournament. Contact the Fresno Tavern for more info.

Today I fished on Nelson. Nelson is 75% full. I drove to the area I fished finding about 24” of ice. I targeted perch doing pretty well landing some nice jumbos along with a keeper walleye and three northerns. Saturday is also the annual ice fishing tournament held out of Sleeping Buffalo.

Good luck and be safe!
