Lake Harriet Report

6 posts in this topic

Was out in the snow today. Right off the weed edge. 7 keeper sized crappies. They came in waves. The weather system didn't help the bite any. There must be a solid foot of ice on the west side of the lake. Didn't think there would be that much, only brought the hand auger. Power auger for sure next time. The wind had really blown most of the snow off the lake prior to this storm. Was surprised by the amount of ice.

Walleye71,

Nice job. How big were the keepers? The last few years I haven't found any crappies over 7 inches...

Thanks,

John

Any walleyes over 13 inches? You hit the west side?

I've caught some smaller walleyes and crappies this winter, but nothing great. All on the west side.

First time user on this forum guys/gals. Tons of good information and helpful tips to be had.

Anyway, I hit Harriet this weekend after not have ice fished for about 20 years and got 2 nice eyes (15.5") and a northern pike of all things. The fish came right on the weed edge in 13' of water.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
