Anyone brave the wind today?

7 posts in this topic

I was going to meet delta this afternoon. And was on my way to the lake pulling my 6.5' x 10' v front. Got out of the valley and took a shot of wind so hard I nealy ended up in the ditch. Infact I was in the ditch with 2 wheels(3 if you count the houses). Got lucky and pulled it out! Got spooked, after I cleaned out my pants crazy.gif I turned around and took a slow drive back home. Scared the ....... well you know what out of me.

Anyone out in this crap today?

I braved it in a portable yesterday. It sucked! Fishing was ok. A lot of people driving on the lake, we walked out with the portable. We fished Clear lake in Waseca.

I also was on clear yesterday with a portie, well i used the truck as a wind break and it wasnt to bad. There was a few times I thought that the wind may blow us away but we were good. Marked just a ton of fish anywhere from the bottom to 5' off of the bottom. Also had the camera down and saw all types of fish, sunnies, gills, perch, bass and pike. Caught a few nice gills and of course a ton of minnie gills and sunfish. Hope it starts to pick up out there. Ice I was on was 12" and I was off of the north shore. Last Monday I was off of the west side and had 13" so there is for sure differnt depths all over, be carefull out there.

Don't feel too bad; it was nasty up north yesterday too. I didn't punch a hole.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
