ICE ON OPENER???

6 posts in this topic

HEY F.MERS.,

IF WE CONTINUE TO HAVE COLD WEATHER, WE WILL STILL HAVE ICE ON THE SPRING WALLEYE OPENER. I WAS FISHING NEAR SHA-SHA A COUPLE DAYS AGO...I SAW 5 FULL SIZE PICKUPS, SOME DRIVING THRU THE SHA-SHA NARROWS., THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, THATS PRETTY MUCH UNHEARD OF. I WAS ABOUT 6" FROM NEEDING AN EXTENSION. TO MY KNOWLEDGE, WE HAVE ONLY HAD ICE ON OPENER 2 TIMES SINCE THEY HAVE BEEN KEEPING TRACK.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Hey FM,

Sounds like the weather is going to break early next week, but there sure is a lot of ice out there. How was the fishing? I'm going to get out on that spot again soon! The pigs should be on there way in!

I remember the boat pushing through honey-combed ice back in '95'... it was a pretty interesting experience for this Iowa boy...

Fever...how about it...last night I was changing out some hooks on my stick baits...I got it bad... Hard to believe that last year 5 days from today the lake was open and I was in shorts on my boat. Has anyone ever ice fished on opener?

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
