Will I get out on the 9th?

4 posts in this topic

Have did this first trip around this weekend for 20 years. Some years we drive our trucks and some we had to walk out from Wheelers and fish the bay. Would like to see at the least that we can wheel over to Pine and fish the lake. You locals have any thoughts about what might be going on by then?? I know that the wind has to calm down and the temps stay down at night, but any news about the lake being froze and how far out? Thanks! cool.gif

Hey only ice your not the only one wanting to know about ice conditions for that weekend. I am also making the the journey up on the 8th (late) hoping to fish the 9th, 10th, and 11th. I looked at the Sportsmans web cam of the river and it appears to be froze over. Does anybody have a report on the bay or the lake maybe in front of Morris Point. I just need some info to tell my brother that there will be ice (since the BOY backed out of this trip must have a big honey-due list or something HA! ) I hope to hear some good news today. From the weather report of the internet the temps look good. I have to get back to sharping my auger blades.

Thanks and ice keep on a coming. wink.gifwink.gif

I can't speak of the river or the bay but there is a lot of ice starting to float on the main lake. A lot of liquid water as well, but everyday it looks like their is more and more ice. Yesterday it was frozen hard in the morning for a few hours then the wind started moving it around. Temps are going to stay cool, below freezing, for the next week.

At least thats what it looks like from Birch Beach/Long Pt.

I hope there is ice for you guys. We have a trip planned to Red early next month and I know how it feels waiting for ice. Especially when time off from work is all lined up.

      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

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
