Question for Ron

Flick--I SURE HAVE-- 14ft of clear water sat on top of those guys for 30 minutes,changing lures , bait ,they came out of there rocks and would just bump it then put it in reverse and back into the rock. It was insane,Ive never seen anything like that;; crawlers, leeches,minners,they pushed them away, jigs , lindys,raps, nothing worked; we sat the bait on top of him,in front, bounced it, jiged it and finally left him; and we werent the only ones with the same story that whole weekend. UNREAL!!!!!!

Exactly the way I felt-I wonder what made them so sluggish? The fish I was on were in 5ft. though, and they weren't sitting still, they were swimming all over.

I don't know why they wouldn't bite but I've had the same thing happen. A problem could have been that you spooked them by getting too close. If you really want to catch them you could try casting a split shot and a leech. They really have a hard time resisting a lively leech.

On Monday I found a spot where there were about a dozen smallmouth, but didn't catch one. Tried everything. They'd take a look at it but wouldn't chase. Do you ever have this problem? Are there any bail out baits you go to when nothing else seems to work? Thanks, Flick.

      What kind of childhood dreams do you have? Have you accomplished them? I have always wanted to ice fish from a snow fort. Well, my dream has come true. Its never to late to make your dreams come true. Be Awesome Outdoors.

      Update on driving on Bald Eagle anybody

      I recently met up with my buddy Al to check out a small lake that I had never fished before (Al had only open water fished it). We didn't get to the lake until after sundown and we immediately started drilling holes looking for fish. It didn't take us too long to find an area that the fish were frequenting. We caught a couple fish and set up the flipover. We wound up getting into some nice Crappies and to our surprise some really nice Sunfish. I would really like to get back to this lake soon to explore some new areas and learn it a bit more as it definitely has quality fish!

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!
