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

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
