Shagawa ice update?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone have any updates on the ice condition on Shagawa? Might be heading up in a few weeks but it is dependent on being able to drive out to one of the islands with a pickup to a cabin.

No way would I drive a vehicle out there. I drilled some spots on Shagawa last week that had less than 10" of ice. The ice that we do have is not very good stuff and there is still some double ice out there.

Nice Looking Duck Dog there. Looks like He/she is ready to dive in.

Hemi, if you're three weeks out it's possible. We had three days of strong melt to knock down the snow and remove insulation, and if we get the usual spate of cold January weather it'll all tighten up and get thicker.

Check back in a couple weeks, I'd say, and we'll see how she goes.

Thanks for the info guys....and the compliment on the pup!!

I will wait to hear from the guy who owns the cabin and see what they are thinking in a weeks. Hopefully this cold front coming in will build some good ice up there!

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
