Nope, there should be no problem, ice is at 16" to 20" depending on area.

There are fullsize, diesels, 4 doors trucks running allover.

And there was a F350 diesel, 4 doors, dually with a 18ft permanent. That's a 11,500lbs rig....

Just got back from Mazaska. Was all over the lake, drilled about 20 holes. Finally found fish suspended 10 feet off bottom. Very tough to catch though. Ended up with around 20 crappies(all C&R). Vex was lit up for about 2 hours.

BBully, you should have said you were on Mazaska, I have my permanent there, and was out most of the evening yesterday.

Anybody wants to stop and say hi, I have the only square, tan, retractable wheel, house on east center section of lake, approx 200ft from shore, all by myself.

Valv, I'll let you know when I'll be out next and meet you out there sometime. Got the permenent out yesterday and spent the night on the lake. Marked fish suspended 10-15 feet off bottom again yesterday. Very tough bite in the afternoon. Released maybe 6-10 crappies. A couple dif. groups of people stopped asking about the fishing and I was able to put them on fish. Both groups were able to pull up some crappies as well. Waxies and small jig or spoon and minnow tail worked best for me. No crappies on full minnow. Night bight was very dif. Pink glow demon with full minnow. Night bite was great. Between 7-9 pm picked up 13 crappies. These fish were very aggressive. Still was marking fish this am at 9:00 but packed up and left to get ready for Vikes game!!!

I have never fished mazaka before and would like to try it this weekend. Where is a good spot to start out at on the lake? Is there any spots that you have to watch out for when driving on it? I would like to try for crappies.

Thank You

For the most part the lake is pretty safe. There are a few places on the lake to fish crappies. There is three deep holes, 35', 50', and 36'. You will know where they are cause of the group of houses surounding each of these spots. Very crouded, so you may want to try the outer edges of these places. I should be out there either sat. or sun. or both. I drive a red chev. s-10 zr2. Stop by and say hi if ya see me out there. I am away from all of these crouds by myself.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.
    • delcecchi
      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.  
    • monstermoose78

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.
    • whateverisbiting
      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....
    • Borch
      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
