Lake Macbride Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

As of yesterday morning most of Lake Macbride was still open, with the exception of the area east of the causeway. There was in fact a boat out on the south arm west of the causeway.

 

With the cold snap coming soon having Macbride mostly open may actually be a good thing. The snow we got this weekend fell on open water instead of thin ice, and that open water will then lock up that much quicker.

I had about six inches of good ice below me on Lake Macbride today when I made my first ice trip of the season out to one of my favorite walleye spots. Finding that good ice turned out to be the highlight of today on Macbride. :crazy:

 

The panfish never really showed up, which usually means the walleye bite after sundown will be slow as well. I caught a few bluegills, but after the sun set I never marked any fish at all on my walleye lures, much less catch anything.

 

Sounds like the ice might get sketchy around Coralville by Monday, so I may be done fishing Macbride for a little while. 

 

I have been hammering bluegills through the ice around here for a week now, so that has kept me happy.

The area east of the causeway on the south arm of Lake Macbride is now mostly open.

 

There is a decent patch of open water now west of the causeway as well.

 

I didn't think I'd be thinking about ice out fishing in mid-February, but it looks like that is what will happen down here this year.

    • Not sure what this bird is called. It only wanted grape jelly. The orioles were thick on the feeders, there were a dozen at a time in the crappy weather. This was in douglas county.
    • I put in my tomatoes and peppers last weekend and built the greenhouses. All week it was nice and toasty in there. I opened one end to vent mid days. They were thriving nicely, leaf tips up. It is suppose to drop to 34 here tonight.  4th year blueberries in front. I pinched blooms the first 3 years. Finally get to try them this year. My rabbit fence is 18" and the snow was deeper. The rabbits put blueberry bush tips on their menu, all vegetative growth below the snow didn't get touched. I am going to re-fence taller around the blueberries by fall. 
    • I just had a bird at my suit that is the size of a cardinal. It was bright red with black wings. Anyone have a idea what it is? 
    • got back from bowstring and feeders were all empty. lotta birds here also. cool that you had some redstarts in. I have seen 2 so far this year.
