4 Pictures from this Week

2 posts in this topic

Our past few trips for channel cats have been frustrating. We caught 3 this evening with a 19”er in addition to the 2 pics below. We tried Gulp, Power Bait, chicken liver, nightcrawlers, and cut redhorse. The Gulp got no attention; the PB had a bite or two. I’m not a believer in that processed stuff quite yet.

I spent Sunday morning on the Lake fishing with whole kernel sweet corn. It was a slow go with only 3 bites providing 1 fish. This is what a 12lb-5oz carp looks like. 8 minute fight on Medium to Medium Heavy gear.

This is the 2nd time (of 2) I’ve had a slow day carping fishing on Lake Zum. I’m not sure what it is about that lake, but the fish don’t seem to be very attracted to corn. Might have to throw them a curve ball next time.

      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..

      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
