Wife Grief and Ice Thickness - need HELP

Recommended Posts

perch_destroyer

I know I'm not the only one. I'd like to fish Meadow or Saurer tomorrow. Dang news been blowing up everyone falling through this year. Wife giving me the business. Can I get some ice thickness reports for the DL area. From what I've read, its pretty much safe everywhere. laugh Anybody else getting the "business"?

Thanks, The Perch

I just got off saurer and there was 10-12 inches of good ice up in the finger to the right of the landing. There was a full size truck and a car sitting by one of the permanants out on the main part of the lake. You wouldnt catch me driving out there with that much ice. The eyes were biting pretty good in about 20 feet of water.

Plenty of ice out on most lakes. I've been measuring anywhere from 12 to 14 on the lakes I've been on. If she is so worried, have her buy you a striker suit wink they float smile

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
