Rick & CK find a new lake on fire.

29 posts in this topic

So there's this little lake that no one ever see someone fishing.

Rick & I decide to see what it is all about.

It's got some 20 foot for a max depth and a good stiff break line once you hit 10 fow.

It's only 200 acres or maybe a bit bigger.

It has a ton of lilly pads growing all around the lake.

We are tossing buzz baits right through all of those pads when this guy tags my bait on the outside edge of the pads.

It was a hard smash on the waters surface.

There were a few more that we caught,but nothing boated were any bigger. We did manage to hook up on 2 others that spit the hook when they made their mighty leap into the air and by the looks of them they were bigger than the one in the picture.

The buzz baits started to take their toll on our arms so we switched over to a jig and sassy shad in a 3" black and pearl with a 1/4 oz white jig head.

As we trolled the pike would hit those shad like gangsters.

After around 6 or 7 -3 lb'ers I managed to hit this 33 incher.

It was a girthy brute that gave me a great fight while I was using my Grandt 6' medium action rod.

I'll say it could take a lot more fight albeit that pike made several runs.

No leader or nothing.

I was a bit lucky with the jig placement on the side of it's mouth.

Once I saw the line was not in his teeth i really laid on the heat.

Watch the video.It's too bad the motor was running for most of the fight as that pike had my drag just a singin!

The pike seemed to be holding in the 8-14 fow.

Se we battled them right into sunset & then tagged a bucket full of small sunnies & crappies. Nothing worth keeping ,but I can tell that I fished today.

These guys were doing the same thing we were doing.

The ducklings had to be dodged of coarse on our way in.

and the sunset showed off these clouds in the most prettiest was.

What a day.

You have my number,whatcha waiting on???Those bass to get bigger?

That's no bass it's a carpet carp.hahahahahahahahaha!

I met a guy from this site & we headed out for a little rearing this morning.

His name is Brian & he's got a good head on him for fishing.

I left my locator at home ,DOAH!

So when we hit the 1st lake it was near impossible to stay out of the weed as the breaks are so sharp.

We pulled out after an hour of struggling with little fish being caught.

I decided to try that lake Rick & I had some success on yesterday.

It's a bit more forgiving as to the sharp break & we did manage to catch some fish in the hour we had left.

Here's Brian with a few pike.

The action was not like what we had yesterday ,but then again we fished later in the day right into dark.

I also managed to hook up on another carpet carp too.

All in all it was nice to meet another fisherman & it looks like we will be doing this again.

The added bonus is that Brian hunts too so I'm looking forward to some duck/goose hunting with maybe a grouse hunt thrown in for good measure.

Thanks Brian for stopping by & it was a pleasure to fish with you.

Here's a video of a pike & Brian having it out.

Cool beans!

I'll look forward to that day then!

We went out for some eyes tonight.

I caught 2 stockers ,pretty slow with the weekend boat pressure & the barometer being so high.

Come fall the action should pick up ,but then hunting season starts.Too many fish & not enough time to catch them,errrg!

These fish have not seen to many presentations I'm thinkin so whatever you'll need is cool.

You only get 1 box though.hehehehehehe.

Heck 1 Scumfrog & you'd be set maybe a buzzer or a jitter bug or a spook would be alls you need.

I have tons of jigs and shad bodies.

Just found out last night we'll have familey up from Texas that weekend. So I can only fish until about noon on Saturday. Maybe we could meet at the lake and you can just run me back to the bout lunch at noon.

Why don't you just hang with them instead of spreading yourself so thin SF?

There's this problem,Mallard's gonna be up and his boat might be a tad big for the access.So that means I'll drop my skiff in there .Well there's not room for 3 big guys in that dink of a boat.

I think we could maybe get his in there ,but it's up to him not me if we should try it.I'd need a number so I can call you Fri. night to verify as we will hit it fri. night giving Mallard a visual on the access.

so do I have to confirm or can I deny????I'd laugh to see you pushin mud to get in there.The water is way down and it's not a very good access to start with.

I can only get in with a 12 foot skiff & that's a workout.

Aha! I got it.

I havent been there in a couple years.

That cabin in one of the first pics is on the NE side of the lake. There is a farmstead on the SE side of the lake.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..
    • monstermoose78
      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
