+diesel filled shoreline=walleye

3 posts in this topic

I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. I took my daughter to the diesel stained waters of East Side Lake down in Austin, and she landed a 14 to 15 inch eye. What I enjoy is that she's only 5. We were having a pretty good time landing small crappies when the eye hit. I knew the lake had been stocked with a few lbs. of eyes under a year ago, but was skeptical.Sure was something else!!! That's the 10th eye my daughter's caught in the past few years.

Too bad there's about 6 feet of diesel fuel all along the shoreline from the truckstop across the interstate. Makes it tough to stomach.

i used to fish that lake all the time when i was a kid, that was b4 any eyes were in there (that i know of), heard rumors of a few muskies being stocked in there to slim out the stunted panfish, any truth to this??

No muskie, however I know there's a few northerns in there. At least there used to be a few years back.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
