bite dies down with driving?

Recommended Posts

anyone else see the bite die down when the cars/trucks start driving out? we went to a spot today we usually kill the pike on and the flags were slow going. there were a fair number of cars, trucks, and sleds driving around. buddies and I were thinking the shifting ice spooks fish?

thoughts?

not trying to find an excuse for a slow day, but there was 13" and a lot of noise from the ice when people drove by.

I like to ice fish a lake alot but seem to keep myself away for this exact reason on the weekends.

Yesterday, with not much to do, I decided to go to this lake that has been hot for me as of late. I got to the lake and I have never seen this much traffic on the lake in all the years I have fished this lake.

Well, I was there so I went fishing and it was slow to say the least. Most others if not all had the same results. As it got towards and many had left, then the bite did pick up enough to bring home a meal.

Never again will I do this lake ice fishing with so many cars, trucks, sleds and wheelers running around like they were.

I've had it happen when I've been pretty much alone and someone drives by that the fish seem to be really aggressive for a little bit. I think that was a rare occasion.

I have fished at LOW when the guides would make a few passes around the fish house with a truck and the bite did pick-up for a short time.

Yes they do. I was working a walleye yesterday on leech and when he was starting to get active a truck drove right by and he was gone instantly especially when they just about run you and your shack over in the daylight. Cant wait to get farther out on the lakes and get the heck away from all the people.

    • Fake quote. I never said anything about 'Swans". I thought you were against fake quotes?    
    • The best light beer ever made!
    • Yikes! read the ingredients. make them from scratch. Many recipes on the web.
    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.
