    Have not seen anything posted about the ice around Hickory Grove. I have Thursday off and wanted to give it a shot. Live down by Des Moines now, only go up to fish and chase yotes.
    Thanks in advance.

    Fished 11am until 6pm today on Hickory. Was the only one there when I arrived and saw maybe a dozen people come and go throughout the day.

    Ice was 8″ and really good quality (completely clear).

    I caught approximately 30 fish. Mostly gills with a few bass mixed in. Saw some crappies on my underwater camera, but they weren’t interested in waxies. Caught my fish in 16′ on brush. Had fish all around on the camera until about 4:30 when they completely disappeared. Only caught one in the last hour I was there. Tried many colors and styles of jigs and they all worked.

    Not much size to the gills this time. Hopefully next time. 😉

    Thanks for the report. It is weird how that lake can “turn off” like that. I have seen it do that too. You caught them good when you could, so congrats.
