Get out and fish

By Bill Bartusek, Jr., Outdoors Columnist

Cold weather will dominate this week as we head outdoors. Temperatures below zero are in the forecast for this second full week of January. This will make things dicey for anglers heading out on the ice. However, angling success has been pretty decent considering the weather.

Panfish have produced the most consistent bite since the new year. Lake Mazaska near Faribault has been producing some decent crappies and sunfish. Here and there you may also hook up a decent walleye. Just down the road, Shield's Lake is doing well too.
