Saturday Night

Recommended Posts

whippingpost

Saturday night found myself and my two good friends, Dennis and Tim on the big pond. The walleyes didn't come hot, but they did come heavy. I'd say one about every half hour. Here's some nice photos of my buddies with a 27, a 26, and a 25 incher. It seemed they only wante to bite when the moon poked it's head out, which was about 25% of the time. We were the last folks on the lake that night,as far as we could see, and it was a nice way to end our soft water season.

Oops, I guess I don't know how to post a photo. confused.gif

Sounds like a good night, but if you weren't out past 6am you weren't the last ones on the lake. Man was it tough to get through today.

Hey Ryoushi,

I stand corrected. We were only out till 0430. I guess it just felt like we were the only ones on the lake. I was worthless the next day as well, but would have gone out Sunday night if I didn't have to work on Monday. How was fishing?

I was good. We were pitching plastics in the shallow rocks on the south end. Couldn't get any keepers but they were all quality fish.

      With the snow that fell last night, that literally is glued to the ice from the warm temps and light rain; and now seeing more in the forecast, it's sure setting up to be a very dangerous early ice season out there. Even Mud didn't freeze well. Only about an 1.5" a hundred yds from the road on Saturday. YIKES!

      I heard that it was still open 10-14 days ago but with this cold it should be making ice quickly.  I was on a bigger lake Saturday and we had 7-8" on a lake that reopened last week when it warmed up.  I'd be very nervous about going across the lake especially crossing any deep water holes.  The next 7 days should be making very good ice though if weather holds true.

      Good share. I'm really itching to get out on some of those local lakes. I was thinking of trying today but I'm going to hold off now.

      Thanks again, Don. Really do appreciate the updates!

      That's what happened to mine too.

      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      Can't get on the lakes yet, but there are still fish in the river.

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.
