Any one on Lake Irving?

3 posts in this topic

It's got quite the community just a short drive from shore. Yes, I said Drive! It's the closest lake for my permanent that we can drive on. Any one having any luck? Diana

I was out on Saturday and the fishing was a bit slow. I think this cold front has some affect. There was a 3/4 ton truck and a full size plow turck by me and a few full size pickups on the ice. I measured about 14 inces of ice out from the irvine boro.

Slow walleye bite but Northerns are snapping pretty good, although they are hitting very light also. From the access straight out the ice is from 8-12" down the south end it is close to 14" as Hef said.

The guys on the west side said they are also around 12" but watch where you drive as the ice thickness varies from the currents and discharges.

      I like to sacrifice larger shiners just for their scales.  Ill take my thumb nail and work em off in the hole and a big cloud of scales slowly make their way down.  Ive never been a fan of a pile of dead minnows under my hole.

      Fished today from 23ft-33ft. Moved 8 times. 3 guys. 2 fish. Thus far.... Case anyone else who prefers an honest report cares to hear one.   75+yrs experience with 40+ on this lake during winter. For whatever its worth.

      Has anyone been out the past couple of days and if so how is travel across the lake? Cam u get most anywhere with a 4x4 pickup?

      You might be able to get away with one and half minnows at a time, but no more.... lol
