Heading up to Snowbank

Recommended Posts

strat-o-caster

Heading up to Snowbank this coming weekend. Any info about the lake would be Very helpful. We'll be fishing on the part out of the park. I'm going up with a guy that know's the lake pretty well but thought I could also use some of the "expert" advice here. Thanks; Strat

strat-o-caster,

First time I've ever written to a guy named after a guitar grin.gif

I just talked to Denny at Smitty's on Snowbank and he said the ice is about 24-30 inches, getting a few trout in 55-75 feet, but the biggest ones have been caught about 15-20 below the surface (suspended)in various depths. His guests are seeing quite a few fish on the vexilars/cameras. Not too much info, but hope this helps. smile.gif

Hey Jim,

I think you should call in sick on Wed.- put the closed sign up for the day, then you and I go out there, pound on some big honkeys, and then come back here and tell everyone how we crushed 'em out on Snowbank! Man, I am getting the itch!! Wednesday is my last day of freedom until November 15 frown.gif

Justin,

I'll have to check the schedule, but could not go to Snowbank, that would be blasphemy mad.gif, have to be Burntside smile.gif Then have to see if the 6x6 Polaris will fire up,& try to find my rods and tackle. Really don't know what you mean by last day of freedom, 'cause when you're retired, every day is Friday! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Yeah, sorry about hijacking the post there grin.gif Anyways, I have heard there have been a few fish caught out there lately. Don't be afraid to move around to different depths-even 28-35 FOW. That's about all I know-goood luck!

      Looks like a cougar to me.

      Interesting pic!!   Could be the pic but looks to dark and fur seems to "fluffy" for a cougar?   My first thought was a bear, neck seems to long and the color change on lower jaw says no.   I am going to go with a wolf.   Thanks for sharing.

      way to big to be a bobcat I was thinking.

      Thanks to the expert advice from Mr EyeGuy 54 (Royce) I was able to find myself a super nice spot of living green cabbage weeds. Not 5 minutes into my first pass I had a nice 19” pike. Over about a half hour I ended with 2 nice eater northerns and threw back two smaller ones and released 3 largemouth. Trolling cranks on the weedlines on braid was the ticket. It was sure windy but it was barely doable. Went back out this evening and got a 21” pike and lost probably 6 due to boat control issues in the wind. And a few more bass and another on a spinner bait. Hopefully can get a few more casts in Saturday or Sunday but we’ll see what the weather does. If you can get out take advantage of it. But please wear your life preserver and be smart water temps are about 45 degrees and will continue to drop fast now. It doesn’t lake long for things to go south quick. All in all a good season lots of great memories and great fish boated. So long open water 2018 and welcome ice season 18-19!
