FISHING OUT OF ISLE

4 posts in this topic

WE ARE HEADING UP IN A COUPLE WEEKS, 21ST THROUGH 24TH, GOING OUT OF ISLE. WE GOT A SLEEPER BUT ARE PLANNING ON VENTURING OUT WITH THE PORTABLES. WHAT KIND OF DEPTHS SHOULD WE BE FISHING AT THAT TIME. I WOULD ASSUME DEEP AS IN 30FT OR SO BUT I HAVE ONLY BEEN UP THERE A COUPLE TIMES SO I AM NOT FAMILLIAR WITH THE LAKE AT ALL.

ALSO, WHAT ARE THE SLOTS UP THERE RIGHT NOW???? THANKS FOR ANY HELP!!!!

I think it depends on what you are fishing for. For Perch I personally like 13 to 20 Ft. just ajacent to deep stuff. For eyes 24 to 34 on any structure. I am no pro but perhapts that might give you a place to start. Good luck

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
