Went out to Burntside again today with Great Outdoors. Set up in 38 FOW. I didn't see anything on the vexilar all afternoon, but Jim managed one about 4 lbs. He had a few more on his graph, but couldn't get them to bite. Where I set up, the water was cloudy...which was weird.

Anyhoo, the main story was wind!! Snow was blowing out there and drifting vehicles in!! Was that snow ever deep coming off the Van Vac landing! There were a few people stuck out there...and we ended up pulling one of my neighbors out wink.gif

Jim, should we plan to get out there again next Sunday?? I am sure you will be itching to try out your new toys! I think Saturday I am going to get up somewhat early and go after some Rainbows and Splake...give 'em one last try before the season ends. I am sure Sunday will work for me. Let me know whats up!

Justin,

Yeah, let's try it again next Sunday. Talked to Mark Zup and a friend who were fishing La Croix today. Same thing as we saw, cloudy water in some places, clear others. They also saw the same thing on B Side last Wed. I'll call the DNR tomorrow and see if they can figure out the clarity stuff. confused.gif

Justin,

You are right it was windy. I didn't have much luck either, and didn't see much on the vexilar. I lost one on my outside line with minnow on it, the hole drifted shut and reel froze up etc. I left about 2pm, I had enough of the wind. I talked with some guys by dollar island on the way in and no luck there either, at least they were out of the wind fishing on the east side of the island.

Not by a creek,we were about 150 feet from shore on the West end (Kaleva Bay) Justin and I were no more than 75 feet apart, his holes were almost the color of diluted vinegar, mine were clear.

Sounds great Jim!!!! We will get out and smoke them on Sunday! I am going to have a Trout Extravaganza this coming weekend- I'm pumped!!!

My plan is to get out Saturday Am for some Rainbows and Splake if the weather is somewhat clear. I am going to take my father-in-law out fishing Saturday (he needs a lesson! grin.gif). If the weather is cloudy or snowy, we will get on the Crappies. cool.gif Sunday morning, I will head out to Burntside-probably right where we were yesterday. When you get done with the store in the early afternoon, we can meet out there and try some new spots if you like. Going to be a great weekend-can't wait!!!

I don't think it should be tough getting out there with old red chev- I think the snow should settle down this week. Let me know what's happening out there, bud!

Sorry to hear that you didn't have much luck there-"Lucky Tuta"! I saw the guys out there by Dollar, but didn't go over there- I saw your truck at the landing. Well, we will just have to get 'em the next time. Make sure you stop by and say hello if you see us out there! Hopefully, the weather will cooperate this weekend!

I hate to say this Bro, but the Chev ain't gonna make it! frown.gif

I had to stop and back up 10-15 times to make it to where we were yesterday mad.gif and didn't think I was going to several times! confused.gif The top secret access is chained off, I plowed it from the lake back to the road, took almost two hours, but it's done. The auger and shelter are on the way, should be here by Wed. or Thursday grin.gif After that, Trout, look out every day until the closing smile.gif

With the "Top Secret Access" plowed, I chuckle at 2-4 more inches of sissy snow cool.gif. Going back today to dress it up a bit, but as of 6 pm yesterday, you could land a 747 on it grin.gifgrin.gif :grin

Hey Jim,

Good to hear you were finally able to bust through there! Will you be in the shop on Friday until noon? I am going to swing by for this weekend's bait supply on my lunch break. Dang work gets in the way of everything!

So, going through Van Vac out to where we were on Sunday is out of the question?

You can try it, but I'd have to say you're in trouble. I was out tonight dressing up the Top Secret LZ grin.gif and my tracks from yesterday (on our Sunday route)were almost gone with the new snow. mad.gif

We is! grin.gif I'll shut the shop down about noon, and we'll make our move to the "Super Top Secret Access" I checked the Van Vac landing tonight when heading home, and they have three nice roads plowed in different directions. Must have had a bull dozer out there to break them open laugh.gif

Did you end up getting the 9" 2 hp Jiffy stealth and the Otter Cabin? Sounds like your all set! Now all we need to do is smoke a few monsters!

Didn't get the 9 inch, settled for the 2hp 8 inch. I got a little nervous about my 99 pounds falling through the 9 inch hole in case I wasn't watching where I walked grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      Went up this morning. Taking the boat out in the morning on the 22 access I wont get out to far but it can be great for cats where the ice is.  lots of dead matter etc. we will see.
    • IceHawk
      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell. 
    • IceHawk
      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell  
    • Horseshoe_Don
      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Put my sunscreen on at 7 a.m. and still got a little redder... LOL  
    • IceHawk
      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
