Burntside Bash

7 posts in this topic

After posting several times about lake trout through the ice and getting great information. Suddenly it hits me, plan to attend the Bash. That way I get to meet everyone in person, get some great advice and have a great time.

My only question is? When it it? I couldn't find a date on the FM calendar. I know, the water isn't even hard yet, and I'm worried about late January or Early Feb. I have young children and a not so always understanding wife. With plenty of advance notice, my odds are much better of attending.

Sparetime, it's been the last weekend of January, but we're not to the stage where we've got anything set yet. I'd pencil in that weekend and look in now and then to see when it firms up.

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod

        Jim, If ya get out give Frank or me a call on the cellular device.  We can compare notes.  Not much looking forward to it.  Heard there was a winter kill on the pond this year   BC

      Hey guys,   Just an FYI.  It sounds like the shifting ice sheet did some extensive damage to docks and shoreline on the south facing shore of Birch Point?  Letters went out from the barge services notifying everyone.    Can anyone confirm?   I have not personally been up to see but depending on how bad it is we might not have a dock in time for opener.  If you have a south facing dock it might be worth noting.   Thanks! Jon
