8/17 River Update

1 post in this topic

Creepy type of night with cloud cover and mist/fog going on. Started out slow with one rock bass. Then worked up the river to a place where I saw them feeding in shallow water and it was game on then. Had my personal best as far as quantity goes. Caught 8 smallies from 15-17 inches and had two in that range go bye bye close to shore. Had about 5-7 little guys as well. Had a catfish at the end hit my top water lure. It went about 4-5 pounds. Stephen King would be proud of the weather tonight. Biting really aggressive. Geese were flying and active as well. Mother nature knows when a front is coming in.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
