Wanting to try this lake tomorrow. Never been here. So any tips on what's up with this lake. Clear water or murky water. Bad spots to look out for ect...
MOON PHASE (35%)
Shoulda know better with a ENE wind ,but after a fishin club meeting had some time so figured I would wet a line so I wetted 3 and thats all I accomplished. Fished midlake 3-25fow ice thickness 7-8 inches. Water clarity has really gone down hill couldnt see the bottom in 3 fow. Quite a few people out all over the lake and constantly on the move.Fishing club Snow golf Sat.Jan 26 on Tittle. Ice fisheree is Sat. Feb. 23.
This used to be a great lake.Was here two years ago.What happened to the weeds on the south end?There gone probably zebra mussels. In the 1980's you could look down the holes and see tons of gills and weeds.Not anymore.Some of the blugills were huge.
MOON PHASE (17%)
Fished all over the lake...my legs feel it as well. Fished everything from 4-30' of water. Just focusing on panfish...half dozen dinks. I don't usually struggle to get a meal of panfish on most lakes...have only iced fished Long a few times. Pretty disappointing.
21° - 25° F
Tried the south end for 4 hours this evening. Didnt get skunked today, but nothing to write home about. ! northern on a tipup at 5:30 was hoping for something else, and a very small perch. Shorelines have firmed up. but still only 5 inches of ice. Few other guys on southend no one on the northend, and UFO Bill said a few guys were out on Tittle, but ice is a little sketchy.
26° - 30° F
Tried tonight from 3-6:30 SKUNKED not even a hit. Guess it was just the wrong barometric pressure moon phase. West side mid lake had 5 inches of ice. Took me 4 trys in different places to get across BAD shore ice.
