cold weekend

Recommended Posts

ilovehardwater

Im coming up this weekend for my first time, I'm very excited to go. For mobility we decided to fish out of portables instead of renting a sleeper. The forcast looks very cold, I think we are going to have to run both the big and little buddy heaters. I just hope that the winds stay down and we can run into some fish...BT

There predicting between -26 & -36 for windchill factors on Sat.

Winds out of NW @ 9-11 mph.

Renting a hard-house sounds more appealing to me IMO.

Good Luck

sometimes the best fising is during the cold snap. I know guys that were out last year on Red during the cold snap. They had the best week of the year up there. Fish cannot tell when the air is cold, only barometric pressure. over the limit, you need to get out more to see for yourself.

I would agree,I have had some really good luck when it was very cold. I think pressure is more important. The moon is getting close to full. That should help. It's always worth it to get out when you have the time im my opinion, cold or warm.

Since the front has already moved through and high pressure is overhead, that should help the fishing for the next few days, at least I hope it does...

We were up last year same weekend and same cold snap weather. We did fine. Most of the fish were on tipups but got one big walleye in the house on a rattle reel. Tip ups caught perch and walleyes on red hooks and fat heads. I won't say these are ideal conditions but a few days of steady cold weather are better then a variety of weather changes. I guess we'll see how the weekend goes. Good luck!

Fishing out of the portables was not bad at all. We fished all day Saturday and until 1pm today. Our best day was Saturday with 20 nice pearch 9-11.5 inch and 6 early this morning of the same size. No walleyes but I'm pleased with the quality of pearch we caught. I just might have to make another trip up there before the end of the season and try to hook into some eyes.....BT

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
