21° - 25° F
Went out on Pretty Lake on 2/8/20, ice was solid 7-8 inches. Was near the launch on the south end of the lake and caught a small northern on the jig pole. Moved to the north end on the lake around mid-day and got two gills on the jig pole. It was a slow day for everyone on the lake that day.
51° - 55° F
61° - 65° F
Fished the opener until about noon. Very impressed with how clear the water was. The bass were starting to move shallow, but were very skittish with moving baits. Ended up getting just one bass on a ned rig with a little skirt and tail on the plastic. Water started in the upper 40's and was about 53 by noon. Maybe the afternoon would have been better, but I had stuff to do.
Here's the episode from the day. Hope you enjoy it!
LOL My wife doesn't get any say when it comes to open water fishing!
Thanks for the advice. I'll have to get there early, I guess!
262- there is a place where you can park a truck and tailor, but not much room. If there are 2 or 3 trucks already there you might have a problem. I toss my kayak in the bed of my truck and have only have a problem one time parking in the past 3 years. Most of the time in the summer there is plenty of room. Just make sure that you are in between the signs on the correct side of the the easement for the landing.
Ask your wife...lol. j/k. Couldn't resist
Alright guys I'm back and thinking of fishing here for the opener this weekend. Is there anywhere I can park a truck with a trailer? Or would I be better off with a carry-in?
Does indeed sound like a winner
Haha trust me guys, I get it. And usually encourages me to go, too. But she threw the kayak in as part of the deal, so in my book, I'm winning!
262. Dude. Ice on Pretty is 18 inches right now. Tell her you, me, and 20 of our closest friends could jump up and down all on one spot and nobody falls thru
