80 degrees and a 5 pounder

9 posts in this topic

We got out early today and temps were close to 80 so I threw the poles in the car off to school I went. We got out at noon and I got to the pond by 2 or so. No wind...high sun...water crystal clear. I figured at the very least it was a nice day to get out and wet a line. I haven't fished since August when football started...so it was a great way to waste some time.

Threw on a white 4 blade spinnerbait and went to work. Normally I don't bother casting to the middle of the pond toward deeper water...just cast parallel to the shore but it's been cold here lately so I thought I'd try a little deeper after my casts down the shoreline produced nothing. I was slow rolling it back to shore when WHAP!!!!! Only bite I got...but I made it count. Last two fish I've caught from this little pond add up to 12 pounds.

Other picture is my son who caught this sunnie on a tube jig under a bobber smile He's quite a little fisherman for a 3 year old.

ehhhh....not really. We came back to reality today. Temps are in the 20's. I know you guys would gladly take temps in the 20's right now! Believe it or not...I miss the bitter cold. The kind of cold where when you walk outside...your nose hairs freeze up! smile

I had to set the heater in my car to 80 and I cleared off about 5 pounds of snow. Lets trade places next time.

I'm in full ice fishing mode, but the thought of 80 and a 5#'er sounds nice...

    • Not a bad idea or product. I just think I'd be worried about the well freezing into the ice. 
    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!
    • Did 20 qts of pickles last Monday, another 1/2 bushel tomorrow!!
    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!

    • I may try smoked rough fish on my bait this year. Anyone tried smoke fish on the bait pile?
    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • 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".
