Jessie Lake

5 posts in this topic

Whew, finally, I am getting a chance to head to the "cabin" and do some weekend ice fishing. I haven't been in the area since I closed up the place last November. Anyway, Tim O or Jason, any reports or news on Jessie Lake fishing conditions (craps or eyes)? Tim, did you get any houses out on the lake? Thanks for any updates.

Depending on the weather, we'll probably hit a combo of lakes consisting of Jessie, Bowstring, Cut Foot, and/or our sure thing pannie lake. And of course can't forget the Cannibal Junction for beers and pizza.

Hope all is well with everyone. Woollman

Glenn, Riley's pizza is very good---they make their own and we order them quite often. After spending a full long day fishing on hard water (or liquid for that matter), a nice pizza and beers hit the spot. Actually, most of their food is very good whether it be a burger or steaks/chops.

I usually post when I am in the area ice fishing. If it works out when we are "in-town" the same weekend, we can try hooking up on a lake or at the Cannibal.

I have been spending my one day ice fishing adventures on a lake that's closer to home. The crappies are biting very good and it's more convenient. I'm just looking forward to getting back in the area, as it's my second home, aka, north of the stress zone.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
