Snow & Fishing

3 posts in this topic

Has the snow caused the fish to change depths? Was fishing outside of the weedlines & having pretty good luck before the snow and haven't had very good success since the snow. Not asking anyone to give out any secrets, but any ideas would be appreciated. Have fished as deep as 17 and haven't had much luck. Could they have gone shallow with the darker water?

You may want to go shallow. The snow on the ice will cut light penetration to the deeper weedlines, which could cause them to go dormant or die back a little quicker. The shallow weeds which should be getting better light penetration may stay green a little longer and still hold some fish.

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
