Recommended Posts

  Havent done anything for a couple of weeks since it cooled down and I put the boat away. Lots of talk and questions about what is going on day to day so it is time to get back to work. Here is the first LOTW ice condtition report of the season. I will do this on a regular basis until ice season really gets underway. Share this on your FB feeds and where you can share stuff. Spread the good word.

Hoey

The forecast is 2F on Thursday night, but heading back up into the 30s for highs and 20s for lows with wind.  As Curt indicated, wind is the key factor.  We really need zeros or below for a number of days to really lock her up.

Thanks for sharing the info Curt!!!

Ish I am deflated was hoping for one last trip with the boat before storing her. Don't get me wrong I love ice fishing, it's the down time between open and hard water I have trouble with. Well guess it's time to tackle those projects I have been putting off all summer. By the way Curt love the( nice fricken snow) line. Good stuff

You need to get a drone for your reports. Save the walk to the lake! :D

Ray the river is always an option.  Sounds like the river bays are iced over.  I have some chores to do at the cabin, so spending the weekend on shore.

         Couple from prospecting some virgin ice, not a hole in site. Mission accomplished!         .....

      Just got off the ice and there were several cars driving around.  We ended up with 1-2 inches. We found a few willing cats today.   Enough to get a head start for the fish fry.  Keep posted as we did not find much for cats in the methhole area.

      sounds great. I hope everyone had fun great job Hoey red lake was slpw Saturday kept 2

      I agree. With ice that only leaves foot or two max of water fish are either extremely stressed or it already winter killed. Sounds like a real nice spring gill lake though. Defiantly would try it again this winter and as other stated drill lots of holes. Good Luck!

      popped out for a couple hours this afternoon. first fish was this nice gill. last fish was a bit smaller. brought a nice northern home to fry up.  bite was a lot slower today than what it has been. my wiggle must have been off a bit. LOL 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Considering the lake is only 5 ft deep, the fish are probably stressed out. Once things start melting, and oxygen starts pouring back in, the fish should really turn on. It’s possible the lake may have winter killed though.

      We have Hoey, but it's easier to go off the Warroad access to get to where we normally go.

      Nice video. Thank you @papadarv NOTE:We will be updating the forums and all videos uploaded here will go straight to a player that folks can just click and watch instead of downloading and watching.

      Out Saturday afternoon doing some sight fishing with my camera on one of Chisago County lakes. Water was a bit dirty and with 26 inches of ice camera clarity was a bit lacking. Did get some nice video of the afternoon. Battery augers failed after a couple of holes so went with the Eskimo gas. Lots of fish above the weeds in 10 FOW.  EazyCam site fishingHB.mp4
