Bald Eagle

4 posts in this topic

Heading out to Bald Eagle tomorrow, what is working? Probably start around the island and then figure out how far we actually want to walk and haul the ice around. Won't get out there until 2 so an evening spot around the island would be great....I have another spot but it is way to far to walk from the landing....is the landing on the northern end open? where the old boat rental place used to be or still is? could make for an easier walk out to areas that we like to fish

Not sure of the old landing, but you can access the lake on the north end via right-of-way at the "T" and it would be the same walk.

I have heard they are driving all over the place, but not going to take my truck out there yet until I see PLENTY of other trucks.

Good luck!

I was out there in 30ft of water, pulled 5 crappies out between 5 and 10pm... dropped the aqua-vu down and saw a million crappies, but couldn't figure out what was making them bite. Either way, small glowing teardrop with a small crappie minnow, and a walleye hook and small minnow got me 5... GOOD LUCK!

      Yes the Navonics phone app is as accurate as more expensive ones and you don't need to spend the extra $$ on another unit!  The app costs under $10!!

      Hopefully things will start to happen soon.  The next 15 days of overnight lows are starting to stay below freezing. Maybe a few test holes will have to happen for me next week!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Looks like we might have walkable ice in 2 weeks
