So there were 7 trailers at the Grey's bay landing

5 posts in this topic

when I drove by at around 2:15 or so today. I didn't have the boat with as I was "working". How did you guys do today? I'm kind of kicking myself. My 2nd office is about 4 minutes from the grey's bay landing and I'm over there more and more often these days. With the weather we have coming up, it's probably going to be next week before I get out. I should have done it today. frown.gif

Well, lets say it was the perfect day to be on the water. However, the fish weren't biting. No boat traffic, no wind, and nice warm air, compared to what we have had so far! I myself managed to catch one small walleye, a cigar, and one small crappie. Was trolling very slow with a beetle spin. Since water was frozen over in the am, water temps are too cold for crappies to be coming in shallows schooled up. They were scattered, and probably still deep. Will try today, weather permitting, and post results.

With this colder weather...what is the best depth to look for them Crappies until it warms up? somewhere between 8-10 feet?

Looking to hit Tonka on Thursday or Friday.

I'd guess they'd still be deeper, but I haven't made it out yet to test that. I'll be @ our Maple Grove office on Friday. Maybe I'll drag the boat with and head down after work.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
