Anyone Planning on doing any pan fishing before the ice is gone?

8 posts in this topic

I went to buffalo lake last night. I was one of about 5 people out fishing last night. Kind of nice to have the lake to yourself. Is anyone planning on doing any ice fishing yet this season?

How was the snow depth for traveling on the lake? The nite jobs been keeping me off the lake for now.

As of last night I went in on the landing near the skating rink and there was a road plowed out to the middle of the lake. I wanted to go to the 30ft hole so I followed a line I made on my gps a few weeks ago where a road used to be plowed.

4wd is prolly a good idea out there right now. Snow is still thick in some spots, even with 4wd I was finding it to be a challenging drive out there.

Are you kidding?? This and early ice are the best times to ice pannies. Excuse me, I'm a panfish geek.

I went out this afternoon on Buffalo for a little while, fished the North and it was slow but have been getting them real good in the past week. 22" ice.

Where you out in front of where the fountain is. Looked like someone was having a fun time putting their shack up.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.
