ice fishin

9 posts in this topic

I haven't been anywhere to take a look around. To busy getting a path to the road. Judging by the snow fall in my driveway, I don't see myself doing a whole lot more ice fishin this winter. Guess it depends how quick it melts. Slush, knee deep snow and no ice machine. That don't sound like fun. crazy.gif

How much ice fishing do you have left in you?

I think that I am going to invest in a trailer next year so I can haul my snowmobile around. Its going to be tough going now until it warms up crazy.gif It stinks too, because there is some good fishing left!

I would think the snow was blown off most of the lakes in the area.

I am going to minnesueing today to take a look.

Well, without a sled, your not getting far at any of the lakes. I tried to get to minnesueing, I got 50 yds at the landing before I decided to back out and NOT be stuck vice keep going and possibly have to walk out for help. Drove downm to Barkers and Allouez bays, saw one houe. Drifts are too deep for me to wanna drag all my stuff out. Might be time to start tuning up the boat and open water equipment.

During the storm I sort of lost the desire to be on a lake.

Today it's calm, sunny and warm.

GAME ON!

Crappies and Gills watch out!

I've been thinking the same thing myself all weekend while moving snow!

My folks live on Pike Lake near Duluth and they said this morning that nobody was out and the ice road that went out to the point was buried in a ton of snow. I suppose someone will have to plow it before March 15 so folks can get there ice houses off.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
