+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.

      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

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
