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.
