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.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
