Sabaskong Ice?

Recommended Posts

I too have a Sabaskong area question. Does Pelican Landing still rent sleds? Don't know how to pm him or I'd do that to find the answere.

I know a few people that have been out on sabaskong. I was out on stevens last week before the ice show. No word on gordie yet. If I see him I will ask him. I found mostly 8" or more ice in most areas I have been. My friends have been running around on sleds and 4 wheelers. There still is unsafe ice in high current areas but with most days not getting above 0F ice is making everyday and night. Crow has also froze over but is not safe I don't think yet. I will call muskie bay resort today and see what it looks like. I am sure we will have awesome ice for the trout opener and I bet there will be quite a few people crappie fishing during the christmas holidays. Any more questions just post and I will try and find out as soon as I can. and as for pelican landing, I don't know for sure, I think they do have a HSOforum though with contact information.

Great news and thanks for the update. It looks like I need to make some reservations for the holiday break. The crappies will get a run for the money. I need to get the wife used to the idea I should be up there for New Years (read trout opener here).

Ken at Pelican rents sleds, at least to his guests that stay there during the winter. If you post your email, I can forward your question to him and he will likelly respond directly to you.

I will be around during opener but I won't be living at the camp. I have to talk to paul about what days I am guiding for sure. They are booked solid and that usually means lots of fishing. I think I like ice fishing more than open water cause staying in communication with people is so much simpler when they are all members of the same HSOforum!!

    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.    
    • I would just buy a couple different boxes and pattern them with all of the chokes and see what shoots and patterns the best.   Depending on your hunting style a more open choke if the birds will be closer. I will normally have the tighter choke as the way I hunt the birds will be farther away but I also shoot an O/U and tend to let the birds get out a ways before I shoot. So an IC/MOD may be a good choice also. But like I said I would pattern the gun with each and different loads just to get a feel for it and whats best for her confidence.   I shoot steel all the time and I tend to shoot 4 shot and late season even 2 shot to deal with late season hearty winter birds.    Welcome to HSO!
    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
