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.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
