Heading up

3 posts in this topic

I think that I am heading up tonight for the last time this year. But I am not sure if I am crazy or not with the temps the way that they are blush.gif. I have not heard any reports as of this week and wonding if it is worth it. Also should I bring a oar to break through a little ice? I think that I am going to lauch out of Terrys. I have been up a few times but never this cold. Anyone else heading up there tonight?

I think it might be a little chilly, but if the wind calms down like the weather says, I think you should be ok. I think the bite will be good especially with low boat traffic tonight. Go slow, and don't be afraid to try HJ 10's.

I was with iceman and we just got back. We picked up four fish right away with only one over 22. I missed several fish as did iceman. We decided to leave way to early since the wind was dead and ice was forming and we were not able to keep our lines down without catching ice. Temp was not bad! Lure of choice tonight was a black/silver matzumo. Will have to get out again if it warms up.

now it Looks like I have to get up and take the pup pheasant hunting wink.gif.

Thanks to iceman for taking me out in his new ride. It's nice to be a passenger sometimes!

      Thanks for the heads up as I  grouse that area and my dog is very young. I know I will be carrying my 40 cal when I go up grouse hunting.

    • Perhaps immature eagles?  I don't believe they get their white head until 4-5 years of age..

    • I second the Vermilion Club-great food and they always welcome the dog (black lab) on the deck and give her water. We have been over on major holidays (July 4th, Memorial day, etc) and can always squeeze in somewhere and if not, there's "the kid" who charges $10 for "their dock".....love the place!

    • You are right, it's a grouse.

      I am not a hunter and I live in southern Minnesota, so I don't know how to identify this bird.  It walked into our campsite at Tettegoche State Park last week.  I am thinking a grouse?

      I don't have much to report, as I have not been fishing much lately, but wanted to add a topic on our quiet forum.

      I finally got a chance to go out on Mazaska this past weekend.  I tried my usual methods with almost no luck.  Fatheads on a jig and under a slip bobber.  From 9 feet down to about 25 feet.  I had a couple of bites, but that was it.

      Water temperature was still a balmy 68 degrees and a stiff wind was coming out of the southeast.  Even though I caught nothing, it was a beautiful day to be on the water last Saturday.

      One day closer to hard water season ...
