Anyone up in the northland been out since the snow??   Any slush on the lakes?

 

Looking at the webcams at the narrows, bowstring shores and Geiger's no sign of any slush.

I don’t think it’s going to be as bad as feared.  Up here now, no issues.

So smurfy, do you keep the heat on low up there or have the water drained out?

No we don't keep the heat on. The gas furnace we have heats up the place pretty quick.  When we go up we are generally there early enough by the time to hit the bed cabin is warm enough.

 

Regarding the water, we pump water from the lake during the summer for cleaning fish, washing dishes and cleaning up. We pull the pump out before freezing.

 

We've always carried our drinking water from home.  AND it's an outdoor Biffy 24 hours/ 365 days a year.🥴 and it gets cold.😂

More Itasca county snacks.👍

 

I'm beginning to really like them pike regulations. Plenty of smoking and pickling material. And not all from the same lake either!!

      Da fishing hole in little falls!! We could have met for lunch

      I've been just using a plain red #4 Gatsuma hook on a 3 foot fluorocarbon leader this winter.  Pike suckers are another option for live bait if you can't find chubs or rainbows. Not a good sign for my trip up next week.  Wonder why it is so difficult to find bait up there this winter.  Seems like a lot more people are ice fishing this year.  Guess I will have to check all 3 bait stores starting at Lucky Seven.  Hope I don't have to drive to Ely.

      Finding most of my better late January fish out deeper than I was earlier this month. With the snow cover and thicker ice we have on most of our area lakes, a lot of the shallow green weeds are starting to die off or already have died off.  With conditions getting tough in the shallows on some lakes, this will push the fish a bit deeper looking for food and more comfortable habitat.   Tricked this beauty and a few of his buddies into biting today.

      Not much.  I set the house on the edge of some but it seems the slush is just under the drifts.  It’s all hard packed out here.  Maybe a foot of snow in the drifts.   The wife had epic calamity while I was out drilling in the basin.  She had a pike rush and wound up on the losing end of a “whale” that got into her rattle reel and… her favorite rod!   I got a text:     Now ISO new favorite rod.

      Any slush around? 
    • Wanderer
      Bowstring.  All new turf for us.  Don’t even know what colors work best out here so starting from scratch.  It’s clear water though we’re starting with the standards.   Didn’t get a lot of advice at the resort but they had a couple other things going on so kinda distracted I guess.   2 more snot rockets at pizza time.
    • leech~~
      So where did you end up going? 
    • CigarGuy
      Hi Chad, everytime I go down to the mailbox, I look for your house out there. By the looks of your driveway, looks likes you haven't been up most of the winter, must be enjoying Colorado! When I was out fishing last week, there were some people out fishing near Metsa's point. Seems like when I do see people out on this end, they're usually around that area. I'll be sure to stop by!
    • Wanderer
      only been set up an hour!  High standards! 😄   2 perch and 1 pike so far though.  All small but some action anyway.  Once this pizza is done I’m going looking for crappies.
