Went out last Friday night. First time on the lake. 5 small crappies in 26 FOW. I've got more faith in that lake than just 5 small ones (5" to 7"). Going again tommorrow night I'll let you know how I do. Hopefully slush has froze some, pulling was a pain.

Yes out from the landing on the south side by the church. Anywhere from 16 to 26 FOW we found fish. A lot more suspended up 4 ft off bottom on the deeper side. These were the more active fish but still finicky and small. I might try Little Stanchfield on my next outing.

Ice conditions still the same 4" good ice with lots of water and slush. I thought it would have improvedsome over the last few days, guess not. I think it's going to take a while. In the mean time we'll just have to catch some fish to make up for it. smile.gif

Are there any pike in this lake?

I live close and was thinking of spearing here.

Any advice?

Or is there a better lake to spear?

I saw a couple of spear houses out there, but i could'nt tell how they do. A lot of the lake on the west side is reed filled and shallow with a few deeper holes near by. I think it would be worth a shot.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.
