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 grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
