well... decided to fish the cooper landing bridge today. we dropped the boat in at first light and rowed upstream to the ice. parked the boat there and managed to land a handful of fish or so. a few nice fish just over 20" and a few others in the 14-17" range. Almost all rainbows, just one dolly and one silver (in pretty good shape actually). We fished under and around the bridge, but didn't have much luck there at all. just saw 2 bank anglers, neither of which landed any fish. all the fish we caught were right up against the lake ice, which began about 100 yards above the bridge. The weird part was that we caught them all on bugs (not telling which one)... beads, flesh, and leaches didn't produce at all for us. Altogether it was a relatively slow but steady day, but it was Dec 21, so I can't complain too much. Oh yea... and it was cold ~ 14 degrees when we launched and 9 degrees when we took out. still worth it.
