Had some sunfish chasing my #2 Mepps sunday, so I switched to a Joe's Flies spinner for some fun micro-fishing. Lots of hits, small pike, bass ranged from 5" to 15", a few nice sized sunfish, smaller sunfish, bluegills, perch and 1 crappie.
|@ the lake|
71° - 75° F
76° - 80° F
12 bass, 1 northern. 5:30-8am. Overcast, cleared up about 7:30am. Storm rolled through night before. West wind,10-15 mph.
Kayak was perfect for this lake, every fish caught in open pockets along cattails/lily pads. Get in the slop!
All caught on Torrent Outdoors, Apex Swingblade (spinner bait) Sexy Shad w/ a Stone roller trailer.
Facebook messages are the easiest way to get ahold of them. The owner is super responsive.
Fish were active. Normal gills (20+) baby perch (5) , LMB (1-14', 1-16', and many smaller) and many smaller pike. One abnormal 12" perch off an orange lazy-ike type lure. All fish safely released.
Anyone know how is the ice holding up can you still drive out thanks
Bruno, yes you can drive out, its a rough ride. put the minnows a little below the ice if there is weeds. Go past the cane beds near the shacks on the east side.
We were there last Sunday and there was only 1 truck. The west and center launches were beat up pretty bad.
Does anyone know if they are driving out off the boat landing yet. My wife and I are both disabled and it's hard for us to walk out. I would love to get on some Northerns even if they are small so my wife can catch some. She's never been ice fishing before. We don't care about the size because we donate them to a lady in New London who runs a rehab for birds of prey and feeds them to the Osprey.
Walked out this morning and stayed until after lunch. Flags were slow ( just little Pike ). Good ice, about 11-12 inches on average
As we were walking off, someone was pulling a permanent shack out on the northwest side of the lake. They were drilling out in front of the truck being as safe as they could heading east toward the aerator.
Looking for info on ice conditions, hoping to get on weekend of the 17th
Anyone have any info on ice conditions?
