Phillips reservoir ice fishing


New member
Went fishing on the ice on new years day. The three of us hung out from daylight until about 11:30. It was back and forth. We would get slammed then just stops for a bit. Ended up bringing home 48 perch. Jigging with mealworms on the bottom bouncing at about 20-30 feet. Not the best day, but definitely not the worst. Average size i would have to say 8-9 inches. Maybe a little more. There might be a couple more weeks left before the ice thins out unless a good cold front comes through.

Weather was very nice, with a slight breeze that was not bothersome if kept at the back. Very slick near the ramp before it gets better.
