They say the colder the better for the night troll on the pond. I guess we are about to find out. 3 of us are leaving in the morning for a 3 day trip on the west side. Is there a limit to the drop in temperature that these fish will take before shutting off? Do you really think the bite will activate even more than it was before? The fishing and reports have been great all year. I hope this is not the one weekend that requires more freezing, looking for fish, freezing, looking for fish, and more freezing than ever. What do you think?

Was up the day after a cold front came through in September like a 20 degree drop in temp from the day before. It was the best night of fishing that we ever had on the big pond chilly yes but well worth it.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
