Michell Report

Recommended Posts

Shack

Lake michell today was about 24 inches thick of ice. I was

in about 28 feet of water and found school's of crappies

and sun fish 1-4 feet off of bottom. Using video camera.

though fish were small, clouds of them. south east access

good for cars and trucks. You can drive anywere, but not

by channel. Around 4:30 p.m. all sun fish and crappies

cleared out and i found a large norther pike eye balling

my cam. Shortly after sunset, larger crappies coming

through around 2-4 feet off the bottom (25-23 feet).

I had the kids with, so I left around 7:00 p.m. Fish

were coming through on finder ever 3-5 minutes as we

were leaving. Went to old Milc on Sat. Started in cove and

ended up in Sunset. Only one eal puoght. Hope I spelled

correctly. Good luke out fishing.

allways rember,

Well hit Michell Around 7:00 p.m.. Some people leaving and

some just getting their. Reopened holes from yeterday ( I know this dulls the blades) set up shack and was fishing

by 7:10. from then till about 8:30 alot (6) of smaller

crappies. The brother in law showed up around then and

things died down till about 9:30 and we got three more

(biggest of the night). Stayed till about 11:00 and went home. Did catch later fish about 10' under ice in 28' of water. Useing micro rigs and smallest minnows. No bobber

work well when i fisrt got their. Going to independance

or milacs in a.m., will report on correct region after

we get back. I rate michell/big lake a steady 6-7 on a

scale from 1-10 for crappies.

Have fun,

frown.gifWent out to Mitchell tonight. It was a death march getting out their. DEEP SNOW! Drove out of access a little ways and turned around. Went to north side, dropped shack off at shore and parked up by condo's. Walked our azzes off until we dropped in at 17'. Had some action on graff at bottom, but no fish to be had.

Brother in-law did catch bull head. Had some bits and called it quits around 10:45 p.m.. This will be my last post of this ice fishing year from Mitchell. Look at pics and see how slush is. Lotsoffish was right! Never mind the weird bobber in first hole. Something I tried right before we left. Will report next year. Note the five inches of slush you have to walk through.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff
