Any ice up there yet?
Hope you had a good day Grumpy - looking forward to a report!
i was over there in the fall fishing and from i was told fish trap was never dredged out and has silted in over the years, i know for a fact sun fish was dredged out because i fished it , it has 9-10 of water in it also tippes was dredged out to , should be good fishing after this cold shot
I have not been there in years, but I think it was a little walking to get to the spots. Probably no more than a 1/2 mile. I will take some pics tomorrow when I get out there and post them.
Are most of the gelena area spots a long hike? Only fimilar with the Thomson,savanna sabula area
i was thinking doing the same thing this Saturday. Maybe Even venturing north from ferry landing up by the springs or grassy. I assume not a lot of guys look at this thread so post back please.
Peace and Good Fishing,
Be careful around Ferry Landing - there is more current there than people realize and the ice can be dicey - I have no idea how it fishes since the corp dredged the entire area several years ago but I bet it is top notch.
I am going to try to go out to Fish Trap on Friday. I have not been there in years so I do not know what to expect or if the ice is even going to be safe at this point. I will post any updates. I would appreciate any info from anyone that has been out there.
I wouldn't mind learning more about the backwaters as well. I fished them 20 years ago and it was some of the best ice fishing. My grandfather and I filled a bucket at Sabula. It was unbelievable but I heard that spot is only good when the waters flood over. Anyone ever hit Pike In the backwaters?
