Woman Lake Time

Has anyone been out on this lake ? I would like to know the ice conditions and how there luck was. I will probably be out there this weekend. I want to drive my Jeep out there with the limited amount of snow, but early in the season there was a really bad pressure ridge out from the Access. Can anyone tell me if that is still there and have they tried to cross it ? There are places fairly close to the Access that can be good, but I like to be very mobile on whatever lake I fish so that I can put myself on nice action.

Yes that pressure ridge is still there. I was out last weekend. Email me hirte38 at netzero.com and we can compare notes etc. I will be up there this weekend as well. Joe

Looked to be a consistent 12 inches of good ice everywhere I was at last weekend, maybe more, I fished all over the main lake. But I didn't exactly take a tape measure to the ice since I was running around on a 4-wheeler and there was plenty of ice for that. There was very little snow on the ice as of last weekend. So with this cold snap there should be even more ice now.

I think all the walleye's swim south down the Boy River in the winter time. I can find them in the summer, but winter is really tough...

Sharp drops into the deepest holes until after dark, then move up the transtion in depth....! I am telling you, I can see my bright jig down the hole in 28 feet of water on a clear day inside my portable... Any noise or lots of movement and you can forget about it until after dark...

The deep holes will get you Jumbo Perch if you are on the ones with the right bottom composition. Takes work to find spots out there with all the structure, but when you do it is VERY Rewarding.

      Care to share where in Ripley this feeding flat is?  Maybe I shoot a deer and catch fish in Ripley this year!😁

      As usual Curt, thanks for all the reports you provide to us folks that only get up to LOW 4-5 times/year.  Coming up again for the MEA weekend, fishing Thursday-Saturday.  Looks like Thursday's going to be nice with warmer temps and WSW winds.  If we get the heavy WNW winds on Saturday, is the LP area fishable.  Seems like the more west it is the comfort level goes up dramatically.  Bringing the kids this trip, so there not real big fans of the 4-5 footers if you know what I mean.  Hope to see ya Thursday, we'll be in a 2150 Lund and 18.5 Alumacraft.

      These fish came of the feeding flat.

      I like finding aggressive crappies and those feeding flats normally have more aggressive crappies plus some big gills mixed in.

      This is great advice as well @monstermoose78. I will add that another reason crappies suspend over a deep basin is because of the plankton rising and dropping from and back to the mud basin below based on light levels.

      Got back yesterday from a week at my shack. Tough conditions. Lots of rain and over 6" of snow. My buddy and I saw 28 grouse and got 15. They were pretty wild and had to put the chase on alot of them. Got pretty wet running after them and snow falling on your head. Had to chainsaw our way out to the trucks thanks to the heavy wet snow.

      There are lots of options and they all work better for some than others for each individual situation.     I use a mix of single rod cases (hard tube with reel bag on the end), the Bunk box Rick has (works for my laker rods), and break down fly rod case that I custom cut the foam on to fit my in-lines.   Basically, make sure your rods aren’t too long for your house!  From there you could even build an insert into your tub and line it with foam.  Custom cut the interior to fit your rods your way.  Ever go the the Thorne Brothers potable mods gathering.  You could get some ideas there for sure!

      I’m in for 2nd season also.  Looking forward to sharing a good hunt with both new and old friends.

      I am hoping to get the boat out on the lake this Thursday. Looks like it is going to be in the upper 50's!
