Any Snow!

I'm supposed to be coming up to Hawley next weekend for an "old timers" snowmobile run. Is that going to happen by the looks of it, or should I just bring my ice fishing gear? Thanks!

There is a little snow in the ditches around Hawley-wood, but if you have ever seen the old timers run (I would say thousands of sleds) I would have to say that there isn't near enough for all of those sleds. The lakes around there are nothing but glare ice, I about blew away last saturday on the lake. And that is quite a feat, for those of you who know me - you know what I mean. grin.gif

I don;t think there is any way I would consider sledding in these conditions. That being said I have seen a track or two, but have not seen anyone out and I have NOT been out this year. I can't wait to get out, but I am not going to screw up my sled.

If you are careful, you may find a 1/4 mile strip of show hear and there, but you will be riding on grassy snow between those areas.

Pray for snow, my Brothers!

Thanks guys...I guess I'll just have to fish all weekend then, darn it! We still have about a 6-8" base here in the cities, but trail conditions are dwindling fast. I have been able to get out and ride a few times, and the lakes are still in good shape for riding. I feel sorry for you guys up there. Hopefully you'll get a good dumping soon.

The local forcast shows three days with chance of light snow -- I am sure you know what that means --

NO SNOW.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
