Crazy Day In Darkhouse

Recommended Posts

I was out all day today. It was a weird day becuase i was worried that the fish were not going ot be moving that the temp went from 40 to 8 within 24 hrs.

I was out on a lake today that was so clear i could have been in 25 feet of water, and been able to spear fish all day long. I really didnt see alot of pike today, but the pike that i did see where monsters.

I took a 24 and a 35. Grandparents wanted to have some fish to be picked. I saw 8 fish all day.

I had about a 24 incher that came threw today when there was a sunfish in the whole, and that pike never even looked at the live or fake decoy, just came in a smoked the sunfish. It was amazing to see it.

Going to try and get out again tommorrow.

yeah i was out yesterday 8 a.m - 5 p.m and only saw 8 fish, 5 of them too small to even think about spearing. the first decoy we tried was a small chub colored one. we gave it about an hour and a half and nothing came in so we switched to a large red and white one and as we were lowering it down the hole a 6 lb. northern comes from nowhere and smokes the decoy. once he spit it out he was pretty startled but he was too far away/angled to get the spear to him, so we had to watch him swim away. another 4 hours go by and i decide to tie on a fire tiger decoy. again as i was lowering down the hole another 5 lb. northern comes out of nowhere and smokes it too, but the fish missed the decoy and got the braided line instead. so the decoy went one way the northern the other way and i was left sitting there looking at a $10 decoy sitting on the bottom all afternoon.

Both sound like pretty fun outings! I think it might be a bit before I get out again.

in your guys's experience when do the northerns move most? early season or late season? sunny or overcast? warm or freezing?

I don't know about other's experience, but from what I have noticed it seems to be different from lake to lake. For example the smaller lakes seem best early in the season. I have some lakes that seem better late in the season. Some spots are better for high pressure and sunny. One thing I noticed last weekend was that the increase vehicle traffic on the lake I was on seemed to have the fish moving better in the early morning before the crowds appeared. Its best to have a number of go to lakes that you can match with the conditions or time of year. That is one reason I much prefer a portable approach to spearing or any fishing for that matter.

Ya that is correct. Also, you could go to the lake on one weekend, and the next weekend is horrible. All depends, but its so much fun its crazy.

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
