Pheasants and Ice?

6 posts in this topic

Heading up to Lake Mary this weekend. Wondering what they reports are for the area. I'm going no matter what but just looking for some positive feedback to help get me through the week. Anyone finding birds in the area. Also,

how is the ice on Mary?

Ice is in real good condition, obviously stay away from the moving water. If you're going for walleye good luck. I think the thousands and thousands that were removed this spring have really hurt the lake. Pan fish are biting but are on the small side.

One positive there are lots and lots of birds! It took me a whole 15min to shoot my limit on state land last Saturday.

Good luck.

Yea I heard that year class was hot. All about 15 inches and they couldn't keep them out of the boat.

Well it should be fun. Probably won't be too many guys out busting cattails

Actually there was a tournament out there this spring and they had to be 15". Put it this way there weren't many fish weighed in. That's funny you heard 15" fish because most of them were 13.5" - 14". Just goes to show ya people still can't measure fish.

Good luck hunting. As for people I think most people have hung it up for the season. I only seen one other guy.

Honestly, I had two buddies North of town, one East, two South and I happened to be out to the West and we all had our limits. I recommend you just go for a drive, based off what my buddies said you should be able to find a better spot than I was on. They jumped groups of 50 birds. Good luck

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
