Season Winding Down.....


Recommended Posts

AlwaysFishing23

Decided yesterday afternoon we had to much fun the day before so we had to get out again. Had about 1.5 hours to fish and kept 17 nice gills for a good meal for my brother and grandma to have. Was more of a tough bite. Plastics and tubby jigs again and marked a lot of fish but the wind was brutal. Being able to see the bite was almost impossible. I know for a fact I missed a lot of bites. But none the less we had a good time again. Shorelines started to melt from shore a couple feet but the main ice sheet was still fine. This was the last trip of the 18-19 season for me. Overall a REALLY good season iced a lot of nice walleyes, crappies and a ton of super nice bluegills. Last night I got try flip over dried and vacuumed out, brought the flipover to the basement, got the otter sleds put in the garage, and got the auger summarized. A couple more things to do and I’ll be pretty much ready for open water. Debated trying to get one last trip but I feel pretty confident with my season at this point. Also the storm heading our way with the predicted snow fall will make things dangerous with all the open holes.

You got some nice crappies there kind of suprised you still have that much ice where I'm from the white bear lake area most lakes are done and there is open water on some areas this is one of my favorite times of the year when you can fish hard water and soft water in the same day!!

Down here in north metro season over. Open water 100 yards off shore on Coon Lake Anoka, expect it fully open by mid next week with today's rain and warmer temps. Time to get the boat out of winter storage.

Yes finally today I put the winter gear away.😢 Wont let my fishing buds you know who you are😉 temp me to take it out again. Was a great season cant complain cught a lot of fish on a lot of different lakes.  Only complaint was not getting up to panfish paradise Otter Tail County as much as normal. Snow depths made it interesting as some of us found out 😲 Thanks to all the guys I shared the ice with this year the memories will last a lifetime!

For sure!  Mine isn't put away yet but it will be.  That rain did it's damage and it's time to be thinking about turkeys and getting the boat out.  I certainly enjoyed spending time on the ice with old and new friends alike.   Great memories.
