PB ICE and CASS

3 posts in this topic

HOLY COW!!!!

I tried Pike Bay yesterday and got stuck over a dozen times on both a sled and four wheeler.. A buddy of mine was on the sled and I was on my wheeler and the SLUSH IS DEEP!!! It dosen't help when your on 3-8 inches of snow and then fins 4-8 inches of water.. YUCK!!! So after we got off the ice with not even getting a line wet, we headed to Cass.. The slush over there is getting worse too... We managed to find some nice eyes and jumbo eel pout and to mix in that a dozen or so keeper perch...

I talked to Froggy before heading out and he mentioned there are still some Open or soft spots on Cass and that the ice thickness varies anywhere from 5-14 inches.. On Cass we found an average of 12 inches...

Beef, I know what you mean. Had the same type of experience out there last weekend. Looked behind the sled and there were some nice "waves" behind me that almost scared me half to death. I am pretty sure it was water on top of the ice, but one never knows. I certainly wasnt going to stop and check it out. Needless to say, I took a different path back to the truck.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.

      I remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
