16 mile

5 posts in this topic

Just got back from fishing 16 mile... We caught our limit, but fishing was VERY SLOW to say the least. This is by far my worst trip to the pond this year. It also was the 1st time I fished 16 mile this year. I normally fish Zipple Bay. Is it me or does the water seem a lot more "clear" on the east end of the lake????? Just one of the oberservations I made. Also the fish seem to be bigger there as well. But like I said this is the 1st time this year on 16 mile, I'm sure it has its days too.

      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

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
