Can anyone tell me how much ice and if I can drive out Thanks
|@ the lake|
Anyone got any updates how’s the Fishing
Are there always homeless people sleeping in vehicles by Braun's bay or was I just lucky enough to be there at the same time as them? It's a shame I felt uncomfortable taking my son out in an otherwise nice park.
No fish, was only out for about an hour. Saw one pike caught on a tip-up.
Spudded across the lake at both the parking lot by the bridge and west of brauns bay. Solid 3” of good ice if you stay away from the aerators
71° - 75° F
66° - 70° F
LM & Pike have gotten quiet in the last couple weeks. Not that there's a lot of catchable monsters in there, but it was common to pull 10-15 LM in that 10-14" range every couple hours prior to that.
If you see/hear the water bubbling, both along the shore and around the interior weed patches, it's Dogfish. I've fished that lake as often as 3-5 a week the last few years, and I've never seen them anywhere near this common until this year. Not sure how it's gonna affect the ecology going forward...
It's also gotten significantly more weedy in the last week or so.
Below 40° F
Spent a good 12 hours the last week there, well over a ft of ice (specifically Braun’s Bay Area). 6 tipups with minnows and one flag, hopped off the hook as he was coming in. Decent amount of people driving out onto the ice.
That treatment has been applied for like the last 7yrs
Fishing is slow to dead on half moon because they did an aluminum sulfate treatment in June to control Phosphorus which killed off a lot of planktivors
Has anyone drove across the lake??
