3/1 Report

Or lack there of I should say. Drove across to the WI side...should've known it was going to be a bad day when after I get to the other side, I get stuck in a snow drift. So if the guys in a tan truck with plow are FM'ers, thank you for pulling me out and even plowing a better path for me to make it back to the main road.

As for the fishing...NOTHING! Fished 9 to 36 ft deep. Had 1 bite, in 19 ft. Felt pretty good sized but I lost it halfway up. I'm thinking either mudpuppy or walleye. Other than that, no nibbles...didn't even mark any fish.

sorry about the bad luck. Sounds like you might have had a walleye for a smallie by the depth that you were fishing.

Went out this morning by the open water. Only 8 inches of ice. The bites were really light Lots of fish jumping in the open water. Some crazy snomobilers decided to fly over the open water. What a sight!

      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

      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!
