1/10/17 It was a miserable, brutally windy day of fishing at Hamilton Lake, but the fish were biting! Ice is in great shape! 8+ inches of good, black ice towards the dam. We did not check the upper end, but other anglers were fishing up that way. Some snow on the lake, but a lot has blown off.  Today's warm temperatures will likely melt the rest. Wear your cleats! It is slick out there


A 3mm Fiska tungsten jigs tipped with a  VMC waxtail or a waxworm worked well. We also caught a few on the VMC tungsten nymph jig. Caught a mixed bag of panfish. Most were bluegills of varying sizes. We got a few nice perch and decent sized crappie. Nothing huge to brag about, but lots of action to keep us busy.  We fished in 24-28 fow.  Crappies were suspsended aroun 10-12 feet.  Perch and gills were on the bottom
