ICE CLEAN UP!!!

4 posts in this topic

HEY F.MERS,

AS THE SNOW STARTS TO MELT, WHEN YOUR OUT THERE FISHING AND SEE GARBAGE ON THE ICE & EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T PUT IT THERE, PLEASE PICK IT UP. LETS MAKE SURE ALL THE GARBAGE IS OFF THE ICE WHEN THAT SNOW IS GONE.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Its good to see others are concerned about the garbage on the ice and clean it up before the ice melts.

Great post.

Last year on my lake clean up days, I recovered a near new aluminum scoop shovel, box of ice jigs(scattered about) a 100 foot extension cord, several floats, about a pickup load of lumber, pop containers, a full garbage bag of garbage(you

'd think they would have hauled it off after filling the bag), about a dozen one pound cylinders.... we all need to pitch in cleaning up, It's just the right thing to do.

      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)
