Pughole Lake

6 posts in this topic

Did anyone read the paper about Pughole. Is it true about the bite being on or not? Looking at taking my six year old out this weekend but don't want to travel too far. Thanks!!!!

I can't believe he would put that in the paper. Small lakes like that don't need that kind of publicity. I bet that the next nice weekend we have we'll see a lot of traffic on Pughole. Just my .02.

I noticed quite a few houses out last SAT. when we were headed up to Caribou. That doesnt mean the fish are biting. Nothing draws a crowd like a crowd.

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
