last open water trip

Recommended Posts

I am going up for the last time to blow out the lines and pull the boat. I plan to fish sat and then pull the boat when I am done. I had a very good season and am looking forward to a little hard water fishing over the winter. I have a couple of spots on Kab that I am determined to try this winter. Just because no one fishes there doesn't mean there are not any fish there...right? The old lake is gonna be turning over soon if it hasn't already. if it has then perhaps I will just pull the boat and head home early. Well just my thoughts on a slow day at work.

Isn't the fishing supposed to be better after turnover? I heard the fish go in shallow and strap on the feed-bag to get ready for winter. Have I been misinformed?

I just have too much stuff to do before snow to fish any more. House to side, wood to split and stack, ect...

Wade I am now officially in fall work mode HEHE. Last weekend I got three keepers and threw back a few too big to keep. They told me that the fishing was really good wed and thurs but on sat I did just o.k. I split and stacked 3 long cord of oak on sunday and am looking at cleaning the chimney tonight. The house needs siding and there is about 400 yards of gravel I need to haul up at the lake. Wife wants me to do many smaller projects as well as making and putting up the trim around the windows in the living room. Won't be long and opener will be looking down my throat and I will be struggling with finishing up the list before summer. Oh I have to try to find some time to ice fish too??? tongue.gif

hehehe, a guy has to find time to fish, or he will loose his mind. At least I know I would.

I spent the weekend working on the siding. I want to go fishing, waaa waaa. I have to get the boat winterized and put away, maybe if it isn't sitting in the middle of the driveway hooked to the truck I wouldn't think about it so much. confused.gif

Seems like it was just a couple of weeks ago that I posted this thread. Now here I am, just as planned, struggling to finish up the winter projects before opener. I am already thinking about the boat and getting the lake place opened up. Already watching the pine air web cam once a day. never did get out on the kab ice to fish though...only snowmobiling.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
