My first Area 51 report!

Felt like crap with the flu or something. Told my wife I could lay on the couch under some blankeys or dress up warm and sit on the ice. Rockport is close so it's the place for me to go for a couple hours.

Didn't get to the lake until after 2:00 pm. There were a number of groups out and it was cold. It's -3 at my house as I'm writing.

I go in at the Two Coves campground and walk up the lake to the rock outcroppings. I think there is current in the lake and it swings out along this structure. At any rate I usually do OK there.

I must have drilled a dozen holes from 25' to 10' . It was pretty slow. Left as the sun was going down with two and missed two others.

I just fish Powerbait a foot off the bottom. I had better luck in the shallower water.

Is there a fishing tourney coming to Rockport? I assume they keep most of the fish they cathch? That put a dent in fish numbers.

I had the same experience recently at Rock Port. Doesn't seem like there's much going on under the ice.

If you are not catching many fish, move around and try to locate fish that are actively feeding.
I find the trout to usually be in water that is close to the shore. Sometimes I fish in 8' of water and do well.
As a rule of thumb, at Rockport I look for Perch in water that is over 40' deep and trout in water that is under 20' deep.
