Mayfly hatch!

4 posts in this topic

There was a very large mayfly hatch in Pike Bay the last two nights! tongue.gif

The Big Bay area will probably be next! Probably within the next week or two if the weather stays warm.

Cliff,

is there any rule of thumb when a bug hatch occurs on Trout Lake compared to Vermilion? We are headed into Trout Next Wednesday morning for 5 days. We will probably hit Oriniack, Pine, and Little Trout as well. I would imagine Pine probably has an earlier bug hatch due to its shallow depth.

Thanks,

WG

I doubt if Trout is even close to being warm enough for a bug hatch anytime soon.

The other lake may certainly have hatches though!

I like to use a lindy and 1/2 crawler or gold spinners and a crawler during bug hatches.

Cliff, when I mowed on Saturday afternoon, I was on the shade side of the cabin, went into the bush to grab some trash laying there, when I came out I thought the little buggers were going to carry me away. I had sprouted wings in no time flat. Later Darrell.

ps: The onions did not seem to matter later on.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
