Grindstone Report

2 posts in this topic

Went to grindstone on saturday in hopes of getting some trout. Fished the drop offs right off the access...hit the bottom a couple times with the auger, but fished from 6 to 52 ft. of water. Caught 1 14 inch laker on wax worms and orange forage minnow. Other than 2 little nibbles, we didn't have anymore action. At one point my vexilar lit up like a christmas tree, I assume it was a school of smelt of cisco. There was a good number of people fishing out there, anyone else have better luck than me?

I was out there today and we didn't catch a thing or see a thing on the camera or Marcum. We were out from the red barn and same depths.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
