Anyone know how thick the ice is?
Thinking about trying this lake tomorrow anyone have any pointers or tips. I have lake maps. Is there any northerns looking at bait wise I'll get my waxies and spikes also. How is the water clarity?
Below 40° F
0° - 5° F
Both me and my buddy drove our half ton pick ups out last night. 14 inches off the boat landing 100 feet and then had a little over 13 inches. Seen at least on other fullsize truck out there on the south end and a few small SUVs.
Anyone have an ice report.
Was out last night 5/27/18 for about 2 hours. Caught 13 Largemouths all in about 4'-5' of water. Lily Pads are starting to come up out of the water. Pretty much a normal day for the lake. Lots of small panfish and bait fish moving around as well as 1 large carp.
Water visibility about 3'
I was out there Sunday just after a very cold night dropped the water temps. Some small panfish up shallow but they seem to be quite a ways from spawning. Temps range from 61-69 as the sun warmed things up nicely. The 80 degree temps for the rest of the week should get things going.
At the north end male bass were pinned tight to beds presumably guarding eggs. At the south end I don't think they spawned yet but hard to say for sure. I didn't see the bed activity there.
Any news on the pan fishing? Looking to come up mid-week, wondering if anyone is catching much?
Below 40° F
31° - 35° F
We are going to be out this weekend as well. Maybe I'll see ya over by the island. Any reports on the ice depth would be great.
