Anyone icing eyes?

6 posts in this topic

I've been out a couple times to pearl and grand but haven't been able to find the eye's yet, just wondering if anyone's finding them around here.

Was on Grand yesterday, we found a spot where we caught a couple eyes and missed a couple more. Not great fishing, but something to do on a Christmas day. No real schools of them, though, just one every once in a while that would either decide to bite or keep swimming. As far as Pearl, I consider that more if I want to do some northern fishing.

We ran into some good sized slush pockets, but were able to navigate around them if you get to the shore closer. Ice varied from 10 inches without much snow, to 6-7 where there was snow/slush. We had a four wheeler, and tried by the crappie spot for a while after dark, nothin doing. There were a few locals that walked out to that spot, and left a half hour after dark. Must not be much going on right now there. If you get out, let us know how you do. smirk.gif

Thanks for letting me know! I usually don't fish Grand until you can drive on it. With the conditions you gave sounds like it might be a bit since I don't want to walk to my spot (which was lost when I switched gps units frown.gif) Hopefully this cold weather coming on Tuesday will get things a little more solid, and the ice thicker. Went to Little Rock today instead, but thanks again for the report.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
