11 posts in this topic

grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifGot the house out today. Good ice bout 5 to 6 in. and clear as i`ve ever seen it, you can even see the bottom through the ice at 15 ft. The ice is good and the fishin is better, but don`t listen to krebsy, he can`t catch fish. I can and did 2 at 20. good luck and good fishin. Be SAFE!!!

BareK called me at 7 am and finally had a line in the water by 3:30. Can you say unprepared. I'm sure by 3:00 pm it was time for a run too the Pub for more BEER. I went out and visited and I'm sure it was my adjustments too the house and lines that made it possible for him too snag a couple. It's going too be a long winter taking care of this guy so my fishing success could be limited at the start of this season. It's always fun watching him light the wrong end of his ciggarrettes and the big bluish yellow flames that burn his eyebrows. Krebsy.. confused.gifconfused.gifshocked.gif

hey dragon the ice is about 7 inches now. I took my 8x10 house out friday. but there is a lot of snow on the lake now, so a 4 wheeler is a must, be sure to have chains on it because the ice under is as smooth as glass.

Dragon -- you talking by Zorbaz?

Let's tad team that lake -- I will put mine on a different spot and let's stay in contact on who is doing what.

When are you putting your house out -- I might do it as well -- depending on this cold spell ... I get to be a little chicken when it comes to all of this snow.

Hitman, was actually talking about around the bend from Zorbaz but either is good for me. I am waiting on a couple calls from friends, Will either be saturday or sunday, What is good for you.... I dont know the lake that well so if you point me in the right direction we could tag team it and find the fish hopefully... We have our work holiday party on friday so I dont know how early I would be up on saturday, will keep you informed as soon as I find out if the boys can go sat or sun. Would be fun to team it up and find em !!!

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
