“ I’m A Tryin” would know but he’s nowhere to be found. CARPIO
You ever find out? Am curious myself.
Does anyone know the current ice conditions? Thanks
Where is the best place to get on to this lake?
Carpio, I agree. I started ice fishing in the late 1960's and first ice was never very productive for me. I say "was" because I don't go out on thin ice anymore. (old age does that to you--makes you more cautious) I like to have at least 4 inches and preferably 6 inches. And I never liked really clear ice as it was a spooky feeling seeing the drop-offs and end of weedbeds. I like cloudy or snow on the ice. I don't ice fish as often as I did when I was younger probably because it seems to me that the fishing is not as good anymore but that's anecdotal. Others on here seem to do good but maybe it's all the fancy equipment in use nowadays. It used to be a bucket, a hand auger, a skimmer, a couple of rods with a Skooley plastic reel, and some goldenrod galls to cut open for bait. Tip-ups consisted of a couple of cross pieces with a reel on. I should probably start a thread on the forums for this for I know I'm getting on about a lot of different things.
Popper: I don’t know about you or anybody else’s experience but I’ve found out after about 60 yrs of experience that Generally ist ice SUCKS! The fish are spooky and it really helps if there is about6” of ice. The ice needs to cloud up. Anybody else? Stay safe guys!
Popper, that is a first for me!! 2 bass hitting a lure at the same time. Very cool. How big were they? They looked maybe 12 inches or so.
Sounds more like the lake lives on him.
Popper, do you live on the lake or do you trailer there? I mainly fish here during winter when I can park on the ice and Ive tried getting away with parking in one of the parking spaces there, but ended up with a ticket when I got back to the truck. Ive emailed the town of Norway trying to get a parking pass if there is one but never got a response from them, and would like to try this lake from the boat without risking another ticket.
