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 understand that the SonarChart data comes from user submitted data, but I wonder if that data is rife with errors.  Maybe the users set up their sonar wrong or something to contribute to the faulty data?  As your screen shots prove, they're highly inconsistent.  There is no 37 foot hole just south of the words Marion Lake nor along the western shorelines.  Based on my experience on the lake with my sonar in my boat, the Navionics data is more accurate than the Sonar Chart, so I'm not seeing the value in the $4.99 yearly subscription to the user submitted data. I guess I'll have to evaluate on a few different lakes and see, maybe it is just a problem with the data for Marion, I just expected that the user submitted data would be more accurate, not less accurate   On a side note, I noticed I could refresh my map update and that at least got rid of the data with the 51' depths, but it still looks like your screen shot on the right.  I'll keep checking for updates in hopes of better data come summer.

      I will be up there next week from Austin Texas.  Can anyone comment on the lake and how safe it is after the warm up?  I thought it would be very unsafe but I saw a truck on the ice plowing an ice rink this morning on one of the web cams.   Is there still plenty of ice and is the lake in pretty good shape now that is has turned cold again?  Maybe it is in better shape then before the cold?   I grew up in the area but that was 30 + years ago so any schooling on the ice would great.   Thanks for any comments.

      Was out there Tue.... Ice was getting soft on top. Access was in ok shape. Don't think you will be getting a wheelhouse out unless it's a real small light one.  Had 16-20 inches of ice yet
