Big/Mitchell

8 posts in this topic

Planning on taking the kids out tomorrow for a couple hours after school. Any luck on either lake? Also, any roads plowed out either accesses or are we going to have to walk it? Or anything else happening in the area for panfish/plowed roads? I am open to suggestions that will catch us some fish and the kids want to drive out rather than walk. Actually I think they want to be able to sit in the truck in case they get bored. shocked.gif

Thanks,

Andrew

Well, to answer my own question, driving on either lake is not really possible right now. We walked out left from the beach on Big. Tried between 6 and 12 fow with teardrop jigs and waxies. Every spot we tried caught at least something. We found a couple 6 1/2" gills in the deeper spots we tried, but we caught tiny ones everywhere. We didn't stay too long (one of the kids stepped in a hole frown.gif ) but from about 4:45 to 6:00 we probably caught a dozen or so gills and a couple perch.

I was on Big, I dunno, like 200-300 yard from the landing, angled left. We walked. Nobody has plowed Big or Mitchell at all. I don't think I would even try it with a big 4x4, the snow was pretty deep in places.

well with the warm weather, the lakes are slushy, you should be able to drive out this weekend, as the snow has settled and the slush is minimal. driving across the lakes today on my sled felt like I was riding a jet ski.

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!

      Friday night until about 9:00 they were aggressive as heck, and jigging worked very well.  It seemed like after that they didn't want much to do with jigging, and the set lines were key.
