January 1

I know some of the refuges do not open until the first of the year. I am not sure if Michelson's is in the refuge or not. But last year, I don't remember when, we creamed them there through the ice and there were a lot of fishermen there. I guess there are not too many Mississippi River guys here. I guess I could call over there and find out. It's worth the trip.

Mississippi River

Checked out the Mississippi backwaters today- Savanna to Quad cities- Did not see one fisherman. But the ice looked good for the most part- Michelson's and Spring Lake. Are these spots closed until January 1 because they are in the refuge? Really surprised that nobody was out. Checked Rock Creek on the Iowa side- just south of Clinton- Solid but iffy as it was a bit chunky- usually a good first season spot but again- nobody there. I never stepped on the ice.

Anybody ice fished Keithsburg (Mississippi backwaters) the past few years. I haven't been there for a few years but it used to be spectacular- didn't open until Jan. 1.
