Who Braved the Elements?

Recommended Posts

Drake

So who braved the elements over the weekend and hit the ice up here? With temperatures way below zero (quit looking after it got to 20 below), we decided we were lucky to be able to live up here and pick and choose our days on the ice! (Warm up coming in and they are predicting 20 for next weekend)

Several fishermen and women up taking advantage of the long weekend and they have been hitting the ice from early morning until the evening hours. Friday was a great day for all, with one large group of anglers hitting a couple of the smaller lakes in the area and saying that even though they didn't limit out on sunfish they did very well, talked to another group of four who hit the deeper waters of Blackduck and they limited on some jumbo perch, another goup stayed more in the 14-18' depths and reeled in a couple of good size pike and a couple of walleye (perch bite is better in the 20-22' depths) while others headed to Upper Red and said they were kept busy with walleyes, so plenty of fish fry's going on Friday night. Saturday things weren't as good, with the bite slowing down on all the different lakes, at least for our guests, with anglers saying the change in the pressure seemed to really slow things down. So far today only a couple of guys have made it back from fishing one of the smaller lakes and just took their picture with their sunfish, so hopefully today will be better for everyone else also.

I hit the lakes over the weekend with pretty good luck. Kept enough friday for a meal for myself and filled out on nice crappies yesterday with a few nice sunnies and a couple of small northerns as well. It took most of the afternoon to catch the fish since I didnt go chasing them around because of the cold.

We made it out to Red for 3 days... man was it cold!

If I lived up there, you can bet that I'd probably pick better days to fish also!!!

Good Luck!

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
