How are the waters up in on the pond around this time?

3 posts in this topic

I would like to take me and the gf fishing on the pond sometime later this month or October. I have heard how nasty the winds can make it and I'm wodering if I will be able to do some night fishing for eyes with an old school 70's alumnium boat with a 40hp on the back? From what I have been reading the fish are starting to come shallow, just wondering if I can hit some ok spots with at 16ft'er on the big pond? Any help/tips/advice welcomed.

it all depends on the weather the day/night you are here. today is much better for a 16 footer than yesterday. depending on where you are going to fish and wind direction, you might have to change plans and fish on the other side of the lake to stay out of the wind..... and yes it is that time of the year that the walleye move in shallow and can be had trolling in 3 to 10 feet of water after dark...................tom fellegy

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
