BEST FISHING EVER!!!! 3/17

5 posts in this topic

OK, I admit that the fishing was not spectacular but the weather could not be beat!! After going through 2 tanks of auger gas we finally found a few fish! A buddy and I ended up with 12 beautiful slabs and countless eyes! I did manage to catch a 39" pike on my ultralight w/6lb test line... after a half hour fight! What a blast though! grin.gif But the weather is what really made the fishing so enjoyable. It was warm smile.gif sunny grin.gif and there was barely a breath of wind! You dont get many days like that on Red!!

Agreed the weather was fantastic! For 3 guys we caught only 7 crappies but we didn't fish sunday. Moved around on saturday and didn't catch a crappie,but came back to base camp and caught 2 crappies later saturday night. Once again the weather was awesome!

Hey Slayer,

Congrats on your hard work paying off. Any tips on how you finally found the crappies after all that drilling? Depth? I'm heading up Wednesday and plan to search like you did...

I was out about 6 miles in 13 FOW. Just look for the rough ice and start drillin', when the water in the whole comes up nice and brown and dirty thats when you know that there should be fish in the area! grin.gif I only fish a hole 10 min and then move on, if the fish are there you will mark em' or get a hit! Search on and good luck!

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
