So who else went out in the storm?

8 posts in this topic

Went out mid afternoon, snow falling pretty steady, and the fish seemed pretty lazy. Marked plenty fish suspended about 5-8 feet off the bottom, but only one bite. Anyone else got a report for this stormy saturday?

I was out from 11 to 4:30 and the fish were going crazy. Got a bunch of nice crappies, some walleyes, a pike, and an 11" perch. Rock bass were the only thing I got on the deadstick, all others were on a sweedish pimple, and they were smacking it!! Didn't even have to work em on the Marcum as soon as they showed up they were on the hook.

You must have been on Little Rock?!?!?

I can speak for Pearl; the lake was pretty dead, at least for everyone I talked to. Apart from a giant largemouth that found my ratso interesting, I didn't have much action. I talked to others, all of whom had caught either zero or one fish. I don't know why, but Pearl was pretty dead, at least for me and the guys I talked to.

No, not Little Rock, although thats where I would normally be at first ice. Really can't give the lake over the internet either so there isn't 10,000 people out there tomorrow after the Vikes game when I go back. confused.gif The perms and wheelers sure were getting onto the lake as I was leaving, just hope they left me some room. smile.gif

There were 5 solid inches. A few people were snowmobiling around out there, so I felt very safe. If you walk slowly and keep your eyes peeled, you can see the fishies swimming underneath you! Unfortunately for me and for everyone else out there last night, none of them were biting. I don't know why--maybe it was the weather--but I'm sure it'll turn around soon.

Well I went back today and what a difference a day makes. Two and a half hours got one pike and one walleye. Both came on the bobber too. Marked quite a bit but they weren't interested. 7.5 inches of clear ice plus an inch of water on top after drilling. frown.gif

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
