Snow on the lake

8 posts in this topic

Heading to Red on Monday for a few days. Wondering how much snow there is on the lake? Can a guy move around alright once you get off of the plowed road?

Jon spent yesterday scouting in 2 wheel drive with chains and when he would get stuck he would then use 4X4 to get out.

With the forecast I may need to take off the chains and install flippers...and dig out my rubber boots. laugh.gif The snow may be lots of wet ice.

The snow has really settled with this warmer weather. Although I did see Jon managing to get stuck for about 10 minutes yesterday. wink.gif

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
