Yeah I got one for you fishinbros...

Don't go out there when the local community college has their canoeing class. :-(

Went out there last Sat morning and was greeted by a dozen canoes out just paddling around the entire area. Most of them kept their distance from the few of us that were shore fishin, except for one that ran over my slip bobber.

Hung out for an hour with out so much as a nibble and called it quits for the day. Too much disturbance from the canoe-ers probably caused the trout to seek refuge.

There are some nice ones out there though. I picked up a couple of 10in rainbows when I took my son out fishing the weekend prior. He was pullin in little sunnies (3-5 inches) just a few feet of shore. And I've seen some nice ones swim by hole when I went out there ice fishing last winter. Just keep your line as small as possible and play the waiting game for them to come cruisin by to see your offering. And when you see a dozen or so canoes out there, head back to your car and find another fishing hole. ha ha ha

Speaking of canoes...when I used to fish it a few years ago, I actually used a canoe and it was very productive. I had the best luck in the evenings casting small rapalas and spinners. I would paddle to the end of the lake where the wind was coming from and set up a drift across the middle of the lake. I would then cast in all directions from the canoe as I drifted the length of the lake. This was a productive tactic and I usually caught several trout and some big ones too. It was also nice because I didn't have to worry about interfering with any of the bank anglers out there. Hope you have access to a canoe and this post helps.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
