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

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
