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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
