Greg, I just read that you were out on Bowstring Saturday with the outdoor writer from the S/C Times. I just had to ask, was it a little cold? I was out there that same day and absolutely froze. We plopped down on my favorite crappie spot and waited for the fish to come to us as we weren't going to move in that miserable weather. Wanted to go try for some perch but we decided NO WAY!! Just had to ask!! Good luck fishing!!

hey merc,

me and a couple buddies were out there as well, on the north end. We got out there around 1100 and fished till about 3 and decided the hill in squaw lake would be a better place to be! grin.gif We only caught a few little perch and we braved the elements and moved 2x. Some guys told us they had caught some decent crappies and perch earlier in the morning. How did you guys do? We were planning on fishing Round Lake for the Squaw Lake Fire Dept's perch jerk but it got cancelled till this coming weekend.

Merc,

Oh yeah, it was cold enough out there. We moved three times before finding fish. It wouldn't of been bad if it wasn't windy out.

Jerry was up to get a few photos, etc. I tried to talk him into another weekend but it was the only one that would work for him.
We went out the next morning on a different lake for a half-day and it was even colder than the day before. Jerry said "you probably wouldn't even be fishing if I wasn't here." I answered "probably not."

bmc,

We actually did pretty well on crappies considering the miserable weather. Like I said we set up and waited and it finally paid off later in the afternoon. At first it was very slow with a fish every half hour or so and you had a lot of sorting on those. Then all of a sudden they showed up and they were pretty decent fish. Only got four perch but where we were is not typically a good perch spot. The thing I like about Bowstring is there are so many spots to try that I don't have to fish in the crowds. I look where the people are and then go off and try the spots where nobody is. Normally we get something out there, not aways limits but enough to keep our interest up anyway. We stopped and talked to somebody on the north end by the two big permanent houses and they were fishing perch but everything they were getting was very small. I'm going to try it next week again during the week. Good luck fishing!!!!

      The forums used to be cool 5-10 years ago and people shared some, but yeah the last few years they have almost died when it comes to regional and lake information.  Even sharing information at the bait shop or tackle store has pretty much become taboo, its too bad sometimes as that was a good way to meet new people back in the day.    This 40 degree weather and sunny this weekend will probably wreck any chance of good ice soon.  Not happy about that to be honest.

      Say what you will but since ice fishing took off over 20 years ago several resort operators I know on Lotw have made out like bandits. Their business has almost quadrupled using the same cabins and adding some fish houses. I'm fully aware of what it takes to run these places.

      I have 5 Wild Game trail cameras and have had very good luck with them.  For the lower price they are a decent option.  I also have a Moultrie, Hunten, Wildview, Primos, and Bushnell.  My first 3 cameras ran on C-size batteries which were very expensive, so I replaced them with AA-battery cameras.

      Copied from the other side but still, congrats. 😊   10 years is a notable anniversary.  Congrats!    I was checking to see how many I recognized.  A fair amount.  Then I saw you did catch me.

      Thinking about fishing the Glenwood area this weekend? Wondering if Atv travel is the way to go?
