How's the fishing on Waska?

4 posts in this topic

So have any of you guys been on Minnewaska lately? If so, have you been having any luck? This time of year has been pretty solid for me in the past but I haven't had a chance to get up there yet. I will be up at my parent's place over Thanksgiving and might come up the weekend before also. Just curious if anyone has been having any luck with the eyes. Any predictions on when the lake will freeze? Do you think it will be open water until the end of the month?

It was pretty good until mid-October, then pretty much quit. Only a few and those are small. Last 4 times out have not been worth the effort. Don't see people out there any more so must be slow for most. Go figure.

Hey Nate. I put the boat into storage today. Getting to cold for these weary old bones. I think the fish can still be had. If I don't talk to you again have a great Thanksgiving and a mild winter.

I went out last weekend, it was probably the last open water trip of the year for me. We did pretty good on the crappies down by Glenwood and then got on a nice walleye bite at dark on the Starbuck end of the lake. I'd give it about a 50/50 for freeze up by the end of the month. The small sloughs are already frozen over.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
