Bside luck 2/10-2/11?

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys!

Finally got logged in! I've been reading your threads since early Jan. Thanks for sharing so much. My first Bside laker outing was opener, caught 3 in two days. It was enough to make me happy. Was back there last weekend for 3 days and my buddy caught 1. I Lost 3 though. Poor me!

It seemed like a tough bite to me. I was wondering how the Vets did. I heard reports the lake was on fire recently, like several 11 pounders, limits for groups, and even a 20 off Snowbank. I travel for challenges and know I have found one at Bside.

I recently acquired a lot west of town by the Kiwishiwi and plan to be a once a monther at least. I'm already looking forward to experiencing next year's bash and hopefully meeting you guys!

Thanks for everything! Apologies to Quickstrike for dropping in on his other name.

Glad you got some fish. It's alright, actually kind of fitting that your first posts are about Burntside and that Ely is where I actually aquired my nickname. grin.gif

Hey Wanderer: Welcome to FM. Great to see you here! grin.gif

I haven't hit Bside since the Bash weekend on Jan. 27, so I'm no fountain of current info.

I will be introducing a walleye buddy of mine to laker fishing tomorrow on Bside, and may be fishing Sunday as well, and will report how it goes.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
