If you had to pick....

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

I'm bringing some of my best friends up for some late season tip-up action for northerns. We'll be fishing the Morris Point area more than likely. My question is this...if you had the option of the 2nd week of March or the 2nd week of April...what would you pick?

I realize the closer we get to ice out....the more likely the big girls will be staging...i've fished into April before but not March. I was wondering how much difference there would be? Any thoughts?

I'd say April if the ice is still okay but it could be iffy.

Thanks Fisky,

I was hoping you would chime in. I fished a few years ago in April and it was pretty good. Never fished during March...but I'm guessing the later you can get on the ice the better. Like you said though....the ice can be questionable and with a trip like this....I'd want to make sure the ice was stable...lol Given the fact that these guys have never ice fished OR been on a frozen lake before!!

      Had a jake come in at 6:25, thought it was a hen with it putting and cuts.  No gobble or fanning at all.  Caught us by suprise when we seen a little beard.  No bird for Abi yet.

      Finally made it out again.  This time with Abigail.  Bumped 2 birds on the roost walking out.  Hope they weren't toms or there are more near by!   Have heard a couple of gobbles in the distance.  Nothing close.   Good luck
