-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.

Kelly, I think you need to set up a camera to keep these sort of memories and also to share some laughs. my boss is up there right now, I would pay big for some blackmail material!!!

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

      I never made it out Monday was too tired from fishing Friday - sunday didn't feel like getting up early

      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

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
