Shields lake

7 posts in this topic

I have a cabin on Shields but before I go up I was wondering if it is worth going yet? Wondering if anybody knew if the fish where biting? And what condition is the lake in? Last year it was way low because the (Contact Us Please) broke in the back S.W. corner Still some big big bass to be caught out there.

The water temp is around 44 degrees, and after this cold spell, it will get a bit cooler. Water level is about average. Watch your prop if you put your boat in on the north landing.

There are a few nice rocks that like to jump up and bite your lower unit.

Where are the rocks? Right by the landing? I have never had a problem before, but I may have been lucky. Although, I haven't been out there when the water was really low.

The fish were up shallow, but with the cold snap we came apon they have slipped alittle deeper were the temp doesn't move around so much. The fish are always there, but if it was me I would wait for two stable days in a row them hit them hard for a week or two.

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
