Hamlin Lake Fishing Report for Feb 4, 2012
Even with the poor conditions, it was a very busy week on Hamlin lake. Being the only lake with ice in the area, fishermen were out in hoards. Putting in the time, many caught limits on bluegill with some very nice perch being caught as well. Several nice pike were caught, with some reportedly just under legal size. Yes, it was a successful weekend and many smiles.
Mother nature has not been kind and we all are hopeful for cooler temps. If all goes well, we will proceed with Hamlin Hooker's ice fishing tournament. We will monitor the conditions and make a determination Thursday evening, February 9th, if we will be proceeding with the tournament. Think ice!!!

Hamlin Lake Ice Fishing Report for January 19th, 2011
The Ice Man Tournament went very well this year. The winning team consisted of Bart Sitarz & Joe Jaworski from Illinois, who caught 15 fish with a total weight of 6.03 lbs. The best local team of David and Raymond Yeagar took 9th place with 14 fish caught weighing a total of 4.04 lbs. Because the tournament took place 3 weeks earlier this year, the crappies weren't as plentiful and the bluegill were a bit on the small side. While live bait was used, plastics and schoolbus fiskas were the choice baits for the ice men. Additionally, over 120 kids participated in Saturday's Kid's Camp event, exceeding by far the tournout for the year prior. We are looking forward to next year's third annual NAIFC Ice Man Tournament.
More slush and snow on the ice in addition to the pressure from fishing are pushing fish sizes down. Fishermen are still going out, crappies are down in numbers but there are still plenty of bluegill. Hopefully our cold temperatures will be positive and help the fish kick back in. Hamlin Grocery continues to carry live bait as well as decoys, golden shines, suckers, blues, spikes, plastics, and all other hot tackle. The store is open daily from 6am to 10pm, and the bait shop is open from 6am to 6pm.
