BURNT OUT MAN!!!!!!!!

7 posts in this topic

Is any one else getting burnt out on the whole ice thing. This friday could be my frozen water day. So the back waters better be awsome so I can end the season with a bang.

Come on spring. I need 70 degrees and sunshine!!!!!!

Yeah, I am ready for open water. This has been a long winter, although I am sure it is more of a "normal" winter considering the previous few have been lack luster in terms of winter weather.

Yeah, I am ready too. Was watching a fishin show this last weekend and they were trout fishin somewhere in Montana and man did I ever get the itch. Didn't help the fact that they had a cooking segment afterwards with the fresh trout. Man o man did that ever look tasty...

And of course my buddy is no help when we headed to Dick's after fishin on Sun and he starts puttin ultralight rods in my hands....those St. Croix's sure felt pretty good in my hands.

Oh well, enjoy the ice now cuz come mid July I'll be itchin to be ice fishing again...ha ha ha

As much as I love to ice fishin, I will say I'm look forward to getting my boat out every chance I get. I guess I love them both, but I agree at this point in the season the open water crave sets in.

I've taken a notice to more of the open water fishing shows and videos that I have lately. Wishful thinking and dreaming of big fish...

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
