I went yesterday and today at Cheney, but didn't catch a thing. This was my first and second time out icefishing... ever. I've wanted too for several years, but this year I resolved to make it happen. Saturday, I went to the East Shore area and walked out onto the lake from the marina. I tried several different areas but only saw fish on the fish finder at one location. No takers however. Depth was no more than 15 feet at any of the locations and ice was 9-10 inches thick. I saw one other fisherman out there and he was having the same kind of luck I was. We visited and fished for a bit then moved on to new locations. Today, I went to the West Shore area and walked out from Sailboat Cove. I fished a couple of different areas, but didn't mark any fish at all. Depth was 10 feet at the first spot and 25 feet at the second. I didn't see a soul out there today. I tipped a jig wth a shad hoping I could interest a catfish or two. I used a Kastmaster on my other rod, since according to the KDWP reports they were catching wiper and white bass on them. Anyone know anything about icefishing on Cheney? I sure could use a few suggestions. Like what areas are most likely to produce and what baits to use. The weather was nice, the ice beautiful and all in all, I had a good time and enjoyed myself immensely... except for drilling the holes. I have an 8-inch manual auger and drilling through 10 inches of ice is a lot of work! If I do this a lot, I'll get a power auger.
