Ive been out almost everyday since opener. Some SM on beds still, have to look deeper for them. LM in south flat are off of beds. LM on any main lake flats were pairing as of last night, extremely finicky. Water on west shore mid lake was pretty stirred up yesterday. Alot of floating algea.Water temp on main lake varied. south flat yesterday was mid to high 60’s. Will be out this weekend again!
I was out on Pine last Sunday on the south end of the lake. 12'' of ice where I fished. That was in the bay with depths of 5'-10' of water. Not sure what the ice conditions are for the rest of the lake. Caught a 30" pike and multiple perch from 7"-10'' on small shiners.
Does anyone know how thick the ice is? Any luck out there? I've never ice fished Pine. I plan to go try out Pine Lake, but don't want to waste my time if the ice is thin. Any hot spots?
Thanks in advance!
I have fished this lake a lot for bass and have never had a problem. Not too sure what the walleye population is like. I have caught a few 20”+eyes on cranks on the west side of the island.
Always have used catch and release. Hope this helps as I personally think this lake is not a pressured as others in the area!
