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.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
