Kids and fishing part 2

I posted earlier about bringing my 8 and 6 year old up in the next few weeks or so...I have had a heck of a time finding a place to stay...(I figured that might happen) Anyway, was wondering about the fishing in late Feb/Mar.??? Does it slow down quite a bit??? Im sure I could find something for us then, but I want to make sure these "new fishermen" catch some fish...Any thoughts would be great..

I'd try to make more towards the end of March. Fishing can be hot again by then.

Mid Feb - Mid March can be a tough bite at times. It seems like the more snow the tougher it is also. Fish can certainly be caught during that time frame, but it's typically a lighter bite.

After the snow melt, fishing is generally red hot again till spawn.

My thoughts.

Fishing keeps getting better, but the ice in April can get touch and go. Snowcats, and wheelers can generally fish till the end, but trucks get questionable.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
