I was up there last night from about 2:30 till 5:30. I had fish on the vexi the entire time, except for the last half hour. Getting them to bite was a different story. I used just about everything in my tackle box and 1 little perch and 2 fish on, probably crappies, that got off, before I could see them. Lots of fish would chase my bait 3-5' off the bottom, then sit there and look at it, before dropping back down to the bottom. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING!!! I'm sure this cold front has them in a funk.

Brian, We were out on Bowstring yesterday and managed to do pretty good. Had to move around and especially get away from the crowd. Trout opener is coming up. Looks like we'll have plenty of ice this year.

Did you drive out on the ice in a truck?

I was out this weekend and we drove on. The snow is now to the point where it is starting to get tough to break new trails on the lake. It's OK yet but anymore snow and driving on may be limited to the "roads" out there now. The fishing was pretty good but we fished off all by ourselves. The "community" spot had no fish at all in that area when we fished it. Good luck if you go!!

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
