The 30.20 barometer probably didn’t help much. But it also might be worth trying shallower?
10 feet seemed to be good in the past week on a few lakes and have read here that even shallower has been doing well for some.
I went out of the Federal Dam landing yesterday on Gull. It was in good shape and we had 22 inches of ice where we fished. I thought about going out again this afternoon but wind gusts to 25 don’t thrill me on bigger lakes with no real snow cover.
I’ve only fished Kab once but I can imagine it behaves a lot like other shield lakes. Try to spend time near current and use large baits; either live or artificial. I’d never go pike fishing in that area without some F18 Rapalas. The good old Original Floater in silver/black back being a top color choice.
It's just about go time smurf 😀 I didn't wish for this weather but there won't b any complaints about it for sure. Been a great ice season but honestly ready for it to be over. I plan on picking up the boat soon getting it ready and doing a little pool 4 fishing and maybe a rainy river run yet. Probably got a couple ice outings left next week maybe some last minute runs to ottertail county. Had a epic day with some buds today locally, fish were right under the ice was a blast 👍
Sure is a beautiful day out today though.
I swung by a local lake today with a more sheltered access and saw it’s still drivable but won’t be for long - like probably not by Monday at best, especially if it gets any heavy use this weekend.
I wouldn’t care about missing a walleye weekend either. Besides, there’s walleyes in the chain one could go after outside of a GTG.
