What Depth?

7 posts in this topic

I am not smart enough to arrange that cool pole set-up that cjac has on his thread but here is my idea... If somebody wants to do this in an official pole that would be cool.

So far this year where have people been catching there fish?

If you keep a log this should be easy, just state how many fish in each depth range.

0-4' of water

5-8' of water

9-12' of water

13-16' of water

16' plus

typically I think most come in the 5-8 range but this year I think i've found at least a fish or two in each range. Its been an odd year for me though, I've found fish in a few places I never even looked before.

Most of my fish have been in the 12' range.

Might be a tricky one to get good results with the poll deal....

Couple tigers have come over deep water, another one was up in the 0-4 FOW. I really haven't fished the muskies too much this year to give good stats. Still on the slooooow mend from the February back op. A 3/16oz bass jig or weightless Senko is a lot easier to cast!

One over deep water (35+) from shore as the ice was coming off in April, 1 from under a dock (8' max) last trolling in 12'. Lost several others most under 12'

Almost all of mine have been less than 12' with a majority being less than 4'.

    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice.
