4 posts in this topic

Ok guys and gal's i wish i could have some better news for you but the bite was just not going for us.It wasnt because we didnt see fish because we seen some big eye's on camera but swim right up to your offering and when i say offering i mean about every rattle jig,every forage minnow,pimple ext,ext we tryed just wasnt working.Yes we had all the baits to ero,waxie,minnows even shrimp none of wich worked any better.The fish seem to be active early morning 6am-10am lots of big eye's swiming that we seem on cam then late 3:30pm-5:30 for us. One thing i never ever had happen to me is we never got one rattle reel go in 3 days a first for me on the pond.We did get a few keepers 3 eyes 16-19 4 perch 9-12. but man we had fun and thats whats its all about. I met Jay a very nice guy he is and yes he does have some nice houses to rent i would do it again from him anytime thanks Jay keep it up a class place you run.In closing i have to say there are fish out there to get them to bite is the challange to see them on cam is awesome but i think i would go else where to fish this ice year because the pond has millions and millions of small perch in it just dope a cam you'll see .Happy fishing to all and i hope come opener this all changes or you are in for a ruff summer up there. cool.gif

No need to be sorry for me LoL just kidding but man its hard to see them big eyes swim up to your bait look at it for what seems forever then just swim away one after another makes for a tuff but yet fun day atleast you know you can jig them up.Im heading to LOTW in Feb. will be given pond another try on the way back from there.

Thanks for the report. Wish things could have gone better for you on your trip. At least you have a camera and were able to see those big eyes. That's got to count towards something, right?

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
