Saturday IceFishing

5 posts in this topic

Any reports on the possibility of getting out Saturday for one last try? Perch fever just won't go away. Is anybody still going out? If so, where and how. It sounds like the main lake ice is pretty good yet but the shorelines are rough. With the recent cold snap are there places solid enough to get out? Any information would be appreciated.

I would recomend a canoe, lifejacket, hip boots, and auger. If you can get to them I would say the jumbos will be biting.

The crappies are biting great if you can get out early and beat the crowds i was out by 5 am last weekend and got a limit of true hogs all over 13 inches, i think the ice should hold up for this weekend. laugh.gif

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
