3 posts in this topic

just wondering if anyone that has been out in the last day or two has had water coming up the hole like what others said like a week ago.

I was out on Sunday in about 14 feet of water and didn't have an issue with water coming out of the hole.

I did run into about a 3' layer of slush under the ice. My brother and I tryed for 20 minutes to get the holes cleaned out but could just not get all to way to the bottom of the slush layer. We had to use some of our heaviest jigs and spoons just so we could get through the slush and into the water.

We had a few fish come through on the flasher and go right up to the bait but didn't want anything to do with it. We probably needed to down size our presentation but the slush just wouldn't allow it.

I was really excited about this ice season and had been getting ready for it since September but this experience has me just scratching my head and not really wanting to get back on the ice any time soon.

Don't give up hope calli, the fish weren't to aggressive this weekend with the cold front that came through, there's definitly good fishing to be had! The fish were pretty finicky for us also. My guess is that they'll be on the chew this weekend, but i always think that, it keeps me motivated smirk.gif

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.
