Howard Lake

3 posts in this topic

Drove back from Litch today and noticed a few cars and wheelers out on Howard. What are the size of the walleyes and crappies in this lake. Thinking of trying some new water. Has anyone been out on Pulaski yet. Last year we did very well early on the crapps. We caught them in 20'-26'. You had to move around and the fish were all suspended between 12'-17'. NICE FISH!

Unless you live on Pulaski, that's not a lake you should ever drive on from the access until well into winter. That lake is full of springs and doesn't freeze evenly. Many vehicles have gone through over the years, so with that said...I have no info for you!confused.gif Maybe one of the residents can help out...I went out last winter and struck out (walleyes). I do well there in the summer too. Go figure. Lots of structure in that lake makes for good hiding spots...

I've always wanted to try Howard. It used to be a great walleye fishery, but has been fished very hard since those days...and there's very little natural reproduction (according to the DNR).

BackHerUp has got it right. Pulaski always has uneven ice thickness, and it's a long, long ways to the bottom in some places. I won't drive out until late in the season either. The crappies are getting better in Pulaski. The winter wallys are hard to find, it's got a fun bottom structure for hunter-types of ice fishers. Good lake to move a lot on, it rewards hard work, just be real careful. ATV's go through some spots regularly, too, not just cars.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
