Why is it ...

6 posts in this topic

that when ever I go on an ice fishing trip it is below zero especially Red? I was up three times last year and each time it was in the -50's for wind chill. I will let you all know when I make plans in advance next year to get up to Red that way you will know it will be colder than a witch's .... so you can plan accordingly. \:\/

Red,

She can be a ornery cuss, she is Big, Shallow and can be very rough. You must be prepared to fish her on her own terms or let her be. She is never easy at least not often.

I know what you mean. I was there during that horrible cold snap last month, last May I took three days off and I was greeted with 40+ winds (the guy at west wind didn't even charge me for the access) I think he was just happy to get away from the crazy man. Timing is everything, just so happens that mine is horrible.

I went up to LOW & URL in Jan. of '04 and we had similar conditions coming in on Wed. and staying consistent til we left on Sun.. -30 with winds causing -50 windchills. With all that being said the bite was the one of the better bites I've seen up there. We had non-stop action! I too get mad fronts everytime I plan a trip but after that one I've decreased my pessimism a few notches.

      I just finished two more of these 10 rod racks ... one is spoken for but the other is available. If you were thinking of getting one, now would be a great time. I could stain it to your spec and put the final poly finish on it and ship it to you in a couple days. Let me know if you are interested.

      Just went and checked out the lake, it is a slushy mess but I can get anywhere out there on the south west side, and all I have is front wheel drive minivan lol So I'm going to do a little recon on a lake map and pick my spot for the evening bite. Any suggestions on depth for walleyes? 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Nice article. Perhaps the lake trout season should close in February right along with walleyes and pike?

      Yeah, saw that too. Rumor has it he was heading towards the river access from Horseshoe. Not smart.

      Nice report! I hope he cleaned the fish for you, lol!
