How is ice inside the harbor? thickness?
I can't believe, not a word has been mentioned about the Salmon Unlimited derby this past weekend. It was the first time we fished it. Had a great time! (Even tho our fish didn't make the cut, just didn't hook up with any tanks) It was great competition, (so much for me sayin, "Im one of the first on the ice"), thought it was organized and ran well, the sponsors did a fantastic job, and the Marina bar/restaurant was more than welcoming.
Great job to the men and women who made it happen! Thx.
This morning our group drilled holes for tomorrows Ice Derby. All together we drilled 30+ holes. Ice thickness ranged anywhere from 5-14”. We’re set up in the S/W corner of the marina which is where the bad ice was a couple weeks ago.
Last week Sunday we fished the central marina area and had 15-16” of ice. Fishing was slow that day but as far as ice is concerned, this is one of best years for ice here in many years with ice averaging around 14" at this time. That said, this marina has several aerators placed throughout, exercise caution and bring an ice bar if you plan to fish these areas.
Should be a great day for fishing the derby. Can’t hardly wait to hear that horn sound off and we drop our lines. Good luck to all and have fun out there.
Argh! Spoke to another person that got the info. It has been postponed to the following weekend. Good call tho, utilize the cold temps to firm up the ice in a couple sketchy spots. So it's a safe and fun event. I just got to relax, the excitement has been building. Makes me feel like a kid again waiting for Christmas. Lol..
Thank you for the information on the spawn sacs I really appreciated it.I was just informed that the ice Derby this weekend is postpone until the following weekend I just wanna confirm if that is true or not any info on this will help so i can let everyone else know.
