Boar, I fished out of Long Point last weekend and what worked best for us was 3/8 oz jigs tipped with a frozen shiner. Color didn't matter too much but our best colors were a white glow/chartruse/green/orange jig head or a white glow/pink/purple jig head. Not sure where you are heading out from. Also, this time of year, pulling spinners tipped with crawlers, leaches or minnows works well too. I usually use metallic color blades(i.e. silver, gold, copper) when I fish spinners, but green and orange can work too. Good luck and post how you do. I am sure some others will post some other tips and tricks.

Hey Boar,

Have heard from many that the Lighthouse Gap arera has been hot. Don't care for the K-Mart parking lot myself so went over to Zipple area to play on the rocks a bit. Fish were active on vertical green and gold mettalic jig & leech (my fav.)and caught more & bigger than others with other presentations.

Good Luck!

Doug glad to see you are still kicking. How has the river been by your establishment? Looking at doing a long weekend pretty soon.

Hey Swabby,

Haven't spent much time on the river lately but when I did, the only way I could catch eyes was to anchor and jig. Can't really understand why 'cause there is hardly any current anyway.

Had some fun throwing spinners for smallies a couple of times. Biggest so far was 19.5".

Take care,

      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!
