Sunfish/Horseshoe

5 posts in this topic

I've fished these two lakes peroidically the last couple of years, because they are supposed to have a pretty fair number of pike. We've caught a few small ones, but not the size or numbers that the survey indicates. Went to Sunfish on opener & the water was dirty colored & there was barely a weed to be found other than the new lillies around shore.Anyone have much success on these lakes?

Thanks, L2f

No luck at all on Horseshoe - great looking lake for bass - will have to try my luck with that once open.

Rice Lake, near Hunt Lake? That's really shallow & I think the only way in is on the west end off the road, no public access. I've always cosidered taking my canoe there, but have never done it. I just wondered if anyone else had experienced tougher fishing on Horseshoe I used to love that lake, bass crappies & pike.

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
