Mid-May Snowbank Trip

1 post in this topic

Hi All,

Our annual guy's trip is taking us up to Snowbank this year - mid-May.  Have a group of 8 guys, and our only experience on the lake is trolling while paddling to/from the portages.  We'll have three boats of our own, and won't go into the motor-restricted half of the lake.


Asking around it sounds like the fishing is pretty straight-forward this time of year as everything is pretty shallow.    Casting and long-lining seem to be the go-to's as far as we've been told.


Not looking for any specific locations, we're gonna do our homework there; just wondering if anyone has any input, advice or experience of your own to share.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
