Forest lake bite PT 2

31 posts in this topic

Thought I'd start fresh. So it looks like an event is being planned on Forest the 10-11 weekend? Cleanup/fishing day? Saturday works for me. Pehaps a 2 day event? Hopefully getting out on the ice will be easier. OlMatty, when is the plastics clinic? Yesterday was not my day............

All colors will work but red and yellow seem to be better then the rest. Pink plastics or yellow will do you proud as well. We need someone to plow an access out to second so if you have any means to get that done that would be great. I don't know if my wheeler is up to the task but if the temps keep up the way they have we shouldn't have too much of a problem. I'd bring crappie minnows, a few fatheads, euros and some waxies and I believe Matty will bring the plastics and show us a good way to fish them. I am hoping to get out there tomorrow to meet up with you guys!

We'd be out about 1 p.m. but if you guys want to fish early that'd be cool. The bite is good on most of the lakes right around here right now for panfish but it'd be cool to meet up with some fellow fm'rs and be able to point you in the right direction. Hope to see you out there! We aren't the prostaff by any means but we like to fish and that is where it is at in my book!

Good luck folks! I wish I could be out there but I'm still working an overtime schedule. Good news is this is my last saturday of work for a while. Message to the ice......"DON'T MELT TOO FAST".

Was out today 1230 to 4pm there's plowed road to spot. U can use either ideal road or willow point. Once u get out of ideal road follow the road then turn left as for willow point stay on road and turn right into road.. For colors I had seen guy had success with red eurovlarves but any color shld be fine. For plastics I was successful with bright colors and blood red work pretty good for lures shld bring horitzonal, vertical jigs head size 10 to 12 shld be fine. Also small size spoon work pretty good they was hitting my spoon and its attract them too. It was slow for awhile till mayb 130 to 2pm they was hitting the plastics! I will be there 1230 to 1pm Shld be good bite tmw.. I wld recommend any1 to bring waterproof boots it will be warm out tmw.. See everyone tmw!

My wife and I made it out last night on 3rd lake. I drove out in my grand cherokee with no problems. As long as you have decent tires, you should be able to get around. Crappies were biting. Managed to sort through the little guys and find some nice keepers including a fat 11"er. On a sidenote, regarding the 2 perms left out on 3rd....I ran into a gentlemen trying to (unsuccessfully) remove one of them last night. Anyone know what fines/penalties the DNR has handed out in the past in situations like this? I'm just curious.

Crappies were cooperative but not much to write home about for size. Had a good time meeting some good guys out on a new lake for me. Cleaned a few but nothing over 8". I need a meal next Friday. Why do burgers sound good on Fridays during Lent?

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
