Thursday Night..fun with ice

3 posts in this topic

Thursday night luvenlifeguy and decided to head up the pond and give trolling a last go of things. We hit terrys about 7:00 and were able to make one pass all the way down to Garrison. Ended up picking up 4 fish largest being 21 63/64 which we threw back. Then on our return trip we saw a Grede standing on the water. Not a good thing. For the next 30 min we battled with the ice that was forming around the boat. The ice was just a small skim but it was enough to pull our lures to the top of the water. Not very much fun so we tried out a little deeper in 10ft. We were able to fish here for about 10 min and then the same thing happend so we called it a night at 10:30. Not a great last trip with the boat but all in all it was a good fall. Hopefully it will get warm next week and we can get out again. Frusterating night but what can you do

We went out of Eddy's and had the same luck with the ice, but not the fish, not a touch. We fished from 2-16'. Once the ice came we decided to boot out. We had to break some through 2-3" of ice in the harbor to pull the boat. I'm glad we left when we did!

The ice problem was minor but the fishing was unbelievable!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
