Meat-run,

I read on another post (cant remember the name of it) that there is a crack about 50 yards out or so and there is a bridge accross it. After that it said the ice was good with no crack. This is second hand info as I remember it. Keep that in mind. If you look thru the posts from the last few days you should find it.

good luck, let us know how you do.

Jim

eyebjim and farmfishing,

thanks for the help. Yes I did see that about the crack at 50 yards out and not concerned about it at all. But will wait with anticipation on your report Farmfishing. Oh, one question for you how long have you lived in New Hope? I was born and raised in Crystal.

I just returned from that area last nite and can tell you that the ice is in good shape. I measured 16-18 inches in all of the areas that you mentioned.

A buddy and I went through on a 4 wheeler Fri night south east of Myr Mar on the way out to 8 mile. Trailer kept us up. We had been fishing in this area for weeks. Be careful of the cracks and heaves. We took our time and checked ice the past few weeks and still managed to find a week spot. Be safe.

Fishing was slow in my opinion. Walleyes were mainly active after dark along with with a few nice perch. Fished deeper edges of mud flats, with mixed success. The rocks were uneventful for me, did get to witness someone's ice house burning into a skeleton out on Myr Mar rocks! Sorry to whoever that belongs to.

Meatrun On three mile i have 16 inches at the shanty i explored out to the inner and outer tips of eight mile had 14inches out there. I started workin my honey holes on my way in the perch are starting to school up a little more out past 4 mile I consider this a mile from my fish house. The perch all 20 that i caught were from 10 to 12 in not huge but tasted good this morning. I found no less than 14inches of ice any where i was and we drilled close to 150 holes to stay on the fish. As for the eyes they were there but extreamly lathargic nothing on the jiggin rods shiner and a hook one on a dead stick and three on tip ups 24 fow. Garrison sports or myr mar both have roads out there i didnt find any major cracks out here but it was extreamly windy good luck too All and be safe conditions change often.

      I'm gonna let you in on a secret that I discovered many years ago on a lake that had low numbers of very large Crappies. We all know that sunset is a time when Crappies become hungry and active. They seem to appear out of nowhere and after a half hour flurry of action, they disappear just as quickly. Often when fishing this lake I would get a bite or two if I was lucky. One night a friend and I were set up in my usual spot and right on time, we started catching fish. We ended up catching over a dozen 13.5"-15.75" Crappies that evening. About halfway through the action, as we realized we were doing much better than I ever had on that lake, my friend commented on the full moon. It was just peeking above the trees, and the beautiful sunset was on the opposite horizon. Not realizing what provoked that prolonged action, we both were eager to go back 4 days later. I got 1 fish, he had 1 bite, as was typical for the lake. Puzzled, we were talking about our last trip, and we came to the conclusion that the sunset and moonrise combo was the cause of the outstanding action. People talk about the full moon creating better activity "because the fish can see better". I am VERY convinced that is NOT the reason.  Musky fisherman know about the power that the moon has. With moon rise, moon set etc. being times when a big fish is more likely to strike.  Other fish like huge Crappies feel the power as well. When the moon is full, moon rise and sunset occur at about the same time. The combination of both high percentage times at once creates a MAGICAL window that occurs once per month.  Since then I have capitalized on this monthly occurrence many many times, for walleye, eelpout and musky as well as the crappies. It is way more than just a coincidence it is MAGIC!! Sometimes the days before and after the full moon are also excellent, occasionally 1 is even better than the full moon night. But any time you are planning a trip for a challenging species or difficult location try to be there at that magical period and you will improve your odds of success.  It doesn't matter if its cloudy and the moon is not visible the magic is still there. Hopefully you can unlock the potential of a lake with this little tip.    Remember that C.P.R. (Catch-Photo-Release) is key to catching bigger fish as well as the key to the future of fishing.

      Out tonight with the kids, honeycomb ice on the top 2 inches with water over the sheet of thick ice. Exposed shorelines are soft, my dog and kids broke through while walking. Even though the shores are shot for driving I’m guessing we’ll have good walkable ice (waders) for a while...

      Haha - ya I spose!  Only we weren’t shooting paper.  Painted steel hanging targets with a spotter and spotting scope. Drive to em to paint em but no retrieval.

      Got out for a couple hours yesterday. West end of Francis again, several small sunnies but no crappies this time. Access is pretty beat up, need waterproof boots but the ice is holding up so far. Couple guys had an Argo out.
