Fishing on Lake Sarah last night

21 posts in this topic

I'm not sure that I was the first one to ice fish on Lake Sarah this year, but I'm sure I had the first portable on the lake. Myself and my brother went out about 4pm yesterday stayed until 9pm 2 bites no fish, but we were ice fishing!!! grin.gif

Ok, I'm jealous. I haven't drilled hole for fishing yet.

Welcome to FM. Keep us posted for ice conditions and how you did on the ice.

I saw someone on Lake Sarah last nite, 100 yards from shore on the east side of the lake. Looks like open water in the middle of the lake today.

Yes the middle of the lake was open as of 4pm the 28th. I was on the west side of the lake yesterday about 200 yards from shore. I caught 1 perch, missed one because I was on the phone, and seen a few on the cam. I didnt get to far out. One reason was it was so windy I didnt feel like getting blew into the open water and the second is because the ice looks a bit freaky as you get out on the lake. But I was on 4" and I'm sure today we will have more!!

If pheasant hunting wasn't on my mind so much right now i would be out fishing. It's just tuff to get in the mood when we have snow falling and 1 good month of hunting to go yet. The rods and auger will be ready by the end of the weekend though. laugh.gif

I've Been out to sarah a couple of times this year already haven't caught much. Mostly been out in the morning. I've been informed that not much of a day bite, but some people have been catching a few at night. How is everyone else doing?

Welcome!

We've done alright on Sarah, for the most part we've caught all of our fish at evening into the night.

The ice was anywhere from 8-10 inches although there is some thin ice out in the middle from geese.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
