Fox Lake reports???

4 posts in this topic

I am heading out to Fox Lake, north of Faribo this afternoon to try to hit some walleyes and crappies. Any reports would be greatly appreciated. I will report the activities later.

I was out on Fox recently and it was slow for me. I managed to catch a 14" walleye on a jig and minnow, and I thought I had a monster northern on while dragging a spinner rig. Turned out to be a 7 pound sheepie! He inhaled the whole dang rig. Disappointing to see it was a sheephead instead of a northern, but it did put up a heck of a fight.

      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

      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!
