Back In Action

6 posts in this topic

Hello all. My family and I just got back from a week vacation in Fl. Did some fishing while we were there. Caught Ladyfish, Hardhead Cats, Lane Snapper, Red and Gag Grouper, Grunts and Sharpnose Sharks in the channels and out on the Gulf of Mexico. I saw alot of Sheepshead in the channel, but they weren't biting. But, I digress, "There's no place like home." Can't wait to get back on the ice. Heading out this evening for a few hrs. Gonna go for walters and see what I can find. Ahh....it's good to be home.

Welcome back sounds like you had some interesting fishing! The lakes are just starting to get some decent ice and better is yet to come. As far as the fishing I have been out alot and it's hit or miss but I have managed to ice some nice eyes, cats and a few crappies. Mn and the cold are something to be desired but like you said the feeling of getting back home can't be beat! Good luck fishing!

Thanks IceHawk. I just got some bait?(see fresh bait thread) and am waiting for my fishing partner to get here after work. Gonna work a smaller lake in the area for 'eyes tonight. I was out 3 times before we left for Fl. and am itching to get back out. I don't own a boat so this is my thing. Ice, ice, baby!

Welcome back Walleyes!

Looks like we'll be switch spots. I'll be hitting the gulf from south Texas in just over a week for a week of fishing and relaxing.

Good Luck when you finally hit the ice!

Borch, good luck to ya. We were fishing out from Naples cool.gif around 8-10 miles out, over 45 FOW. Lots of smaller fish. Nothing to keep due to min. size limits. tongue.gif I was told the good(bigger) fish were about 18-20 miles out. confused.gif Time constraints wouldn't let us get out that far though. Not sure about the Texas side, though. Have fun, be safe, and catch 'em all! Well not ALL of 'em. LOL. grin.gif

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
