fishing report / 12/19

11 posts in this topic

Just got off the lake and caught 7 beautiful slabs, and missed a few more. Fished around 3 miles out, measured the ice and there was a good 14 inches where I was fishing.Got a little scared coming off the ice due to a white out and 40 mph winds shocked.gif,I'm glad I had the GPS with. Gotta be careful out there.

Thanks for the report. I'm looking forward to staying in one of your houses over new years weekend. I'm counting on you to find the fish, and put us on them, because I'm bringing my wife and kids up for their first time. Thanks again, Don

grin.gifI drove my samurai all the way from the south shore to Hillman’s road yesterday, not a problem and I have been dragging our ice road out 2 miles with a F-150 4X4. I think it is good enough for smaller vehicles. Just remember, “ice no mater how thick is never safe!!”

We drove out with full size pickup out of Agassiz on Fri.

No problem except coming in a crack/heave opened up just out from shore. with the cold weather now this weekend should be in full swing unless any more cracks cause trouble

Yep some other people drove out too with out permission from the resorts and they ended up stuck and lost the front tire off thier new truck. It sure is alot of work to rescue people that drive too heavy too early confused.gif.......

Good point NINETOE! When I looked at the mangled remains of his truck at the repair shop yesterday it was a 1 TON! shocked.gif As far as I'm concerned both him and the person that told him it was O.K. to drive out there are lacking both in commen sense AND respect for what can happen on the lake if you do something stupid. He is just lucky he was in shallow water.

Well the worst thing is that nobody told him it was safe to go out there! With the very few to actually put a whole vehicle in the lake , you would think that would be enough to make people ask someone who knows the lake. That fri night there was 12-13 inches at the most and a pressure ridge to deal with! Now the road is screwed up for the resort owner.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
