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.

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
