Hows this for a unmarked hole

Recommended Posts

Gordie

Thisd hole was either left open from a house falling thru or a house that is now on the bottom this is on little Elk lake by my house and three house wnet in last night. I went to shore to get some brush to mark this hole and a guy almost drove into the open hole... if you look close in the background you will see the other house that fell in or check out the ice fishing forum for more pics

PLEASE IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPEN TO YOUR HOUSE PLEASE MARK THE HOLE

I have heard of putting crappie cribs in lakes but that is a little expensive to lose an ice house.

I cannot figure what people are thinking leaving holes like that unmarked.

Absolute stupidity

I went to my house on clearwater on tuesday afternoon and my house was partially in. I jacked it up and repositioned it over the "new hole" that was about double the size of my original spear hole. It is amazing how fast those spear holes expand with that south wind blowing under the house and 50 degree weather. I also went through the ice walking out on Sunday in waste deep water, fortunately it was warm enough to walk back to the my house and change clothes but that ice is definitely spotty! Hopefully these cold temps help.

What do you think the deal was Gordie?

I thought I have heard a river goes through the lake is that correct?

This wasnt a spear house this was a angling house the holes were opened from the weekked warm weather and wthe wind pulled the warm air from the house and swirled it around under the house and opened up the holes and deterioated the ice until the house fell in. I posted pics. in the Elk rziver froum and the ice fishing forum of a couple other house that went thru.

Yes there is a current flow but I dont think that had much to do with what happened to these houses. These hoses were never moved off of holes that were growing and the neighbors bros house had three hole that were drill like a cloverleaf on all four corners. and it wasnt paid attention to.

This literally happened over night I was on the lake until almost 2pm the day before and these houses were sitting on the ice just fine I talked with a couple others that were also out the day before and said the same thing.

Saw a big hole like that on the lake I was spearing on this morning. Walked as close to it as I felt comfortable with and tossed in a piece of brush. I figure that should keep someone from walking into it once the top freezes over. Be safe out there and watch where your walking.

      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?

      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.

      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.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
