Big Marine Ice....carefull out there

3 posts in this topic

Went out yesterday morning for a few hours. Took the 4 wheeler and hugged the shore and did break through. I left the wheeler on shore and walked out after that. Anywhere from 7 inches in spots down to 3 in others, and slushy spot all over. Fishing was nothing to jump for but did manage a few fish.

Elusive, was that your mess out from the east arm access? Sloppy stuff. I made it out to BigM for another try, I was out a couple times pre-storm, was super slow then.

Got a few decent crappie, a largemouth bass and a bunch of pike - all at the same spot with panfish rods and 2lb test. Almost got spooled by one of them. I'm hoping to make it back out tonight.

I found a good 8", with 2" of slush water on top. Messy stuff. Here's some pictures, tough to take good ones when your solo. LB

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
