Who's planning on coming to the Icehouse Bob Memorial Cool Cats Get Together?

Recommended Posts

Borch

Well this Saturday is the big day. I moved this event over to Long Lake due to our less than ideal ice conditions which will not allow vehicle traffic to get to the meth hole. I did a short scouting trip over to Long this past weekend and found 7 1/2 to 9" of good ice. The area we plan on fishing is just a short walk from the Long Lake public access. By the way I found several nice cats in this short scouting trip that were more than willing to bite.

Just checking to see who is planning on coming out to shoot the bull, catch some fish and have some fun!

I'm thinking about it. Will probably be a last minute decision. Anybody ever spend the night on the chain? Wondering if it may be worth spending the night out there and heading back in the morning.

Staying overnight is a good option there can be at times a good walleye bite on ratttle reels.

I know in years past, "The Chemist" spent the night before our gathering out there and did real well.

Anyone heard from him lately?

It's been a while since I've heard from Chemist!

The cats will be around as well as the crappies and eyes. I heard from a couple of reliable sources that there are some very nice eyes and crappies in there. wink

So fathead minnows and crappie minnows I will pick up for the day tomorrow. Anything else I need to bring as far as bait? I have some glow red rattlin' flyers spoons and buckshot minnows, I believe that should work. but will try to round up some rattlin' varmits when I'm getting bait (hope they have some). Looking forward to tomorrow morning!

That should work. Also a bobber rig with an ice buster or venom bobber with a #4 or 6 glow teardrop jig like a frostie or demon for your second rod.

Sometimes chicken livers are the ticket. I'm betting someone will have some along.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?  
    • delcecchi
      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.
    • Gone Out Fishin
      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.
