General ice fishin reports

Recommended Posts

Seems like overall the ice fishing has slowed down in my neck of the woods - finally enough ice for driving out most places though. Time for the mid-winter slump?

Was pretty good first ice up until now. More people due to ice travel by vehicles. The panfish action is still ok tho, try to get away from the crowds and you'll find the fish. SB

Jim, there is nothing wrong with fishing for smelt, someone has to get them out of the way so the trout will look at your bait.

I had the boys out fishing sat. and sun. Bluegill action was non stop most of the day, which is great when you got liitle ones with ya. Had to weed threw lots of little ones to get some bigger ones. Only manged to get a couple of crappies and perch. The boys got a few small pike on the tip ups also. Was a good time cool.gif

My last outing in WI was the minnesuing GTG. This weekend is up to Burntside in Ely.

Ran, where do you usually fish, I'd like to get my 4.5 yo son out with other kids his age.

A bud of mine was on a local lake(Altoona) yesterday afternoon and it was slow going. He got there about 3pm and caught a few then the bite died as evening progressed. However, he's still in the stone age with his ice fishin gear and was fishin rather 'lazily' from what I can gather!

My old man was out there on Mon and I haven't heard how he did - he pounded the perch last year but hasn't been out much this year.

    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.
