-21 to + 31

9 posts in this topic

Forecasted -21 degrees Friday night followed by +29 degrees on Saturday. The ice sheet has been pretty stable since the -30 degree nights and now a 50 degree swing in 24 hours. There should be 12 to 15 feet of movement sometime on Saturday. Any guess's on what time it booms and soils our underwear. \:o I'll go with 3:40 PM when everyone runs out of their houses. grin.gif

4:13 and 22 seconds. I've got an URL rookie coming up with me this weekend. Kelly/Jon I'll point him out when you drop me off at the house. We'll have to try the seal story incase the "ice quake" doesn't work on him.

Based on the boom from this weekend last year I'm guessing 12:30 pm.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
