German?

8 posts in this topic

How's the ice looking on German? Will a guy be able to walk out still this weekend? We did pretty good a few weeks ago out there, haven't been out since.

There is plenty ice i would not drive a car or truck and if shorelines will hold up atvs should be an option walking should not be a problem unless we get a lot of rain and wind

I was out last Thursday night. Roughly 16" of ice out in the deeper water. My atv worked hard getting thru the first 100yds of slush in front of the public landing. It was clear sailing otherwise. Sunnies are suspended in the deep water 12' down and the crappies are moving in at dark. My buddy even caught a 26" eye on spikes tongue.gif while fishing sunnies. It was quite the battle on 2 pound test line. Good luck this weekend.

Never made it up to German, ended up working all 3 nights last weekend flipping burgers at Carl's. Oh well, more money for the open water fund.

Thanks for the birthday wishes basscatcher, turned the big 18, legally an adult, thats scary.

Thinking of hitting German in a few weeks once the water warms a bit, the crappies should be starting to move.

No he is not kidding! Highschool graduation marks the beginning of your working life. People never know how nice they have it in high school! Like I always say, you can always tell a teenager but you can't tell them much. Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Went out to German today. Windy as he** and had a heck of a time loading the boat by myself - let's just say I didn't stay dry. I cruised the key areas (at least areas that produced last year) and didn't mark any fish - only fish marked were suspended in about 40' of water. Water temp was 45 degrees. Couldn't coax a bite of of any of them. Nice to get the boat out even though it was a crappy (not crappie) day.
