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 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!

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.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
