Ventured up to Patterson Lake from some Christmas eve ice fishing. The goal was to find some crappie thru the ice and the lake didn't disappoint. The crappie bite was consistent for the first few hours of the morning but pretty quickly tapered off by noon. Fish were in 6-10' of water and associated with weedy flats. I also caught several 9 to 11" perch, a handful of bluegill and trout, as well as numerous bass up to 2 lbs.
Ice was 4.5" thick.
