High Pressure, Cold!!!

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if any of you die-hards braved the cold and how you fared with this high pressure system hanging over us?

Well, I'm no die hard, but I've been out everyday with the exception of 4 since Dec. 22. The fishing tends to be very stable and more predictable with the full moon than I expected. I tried a lake on Sat with good luck on crappies after dark, another lake last night with fair luck, Both nights the fish showed up at around 7, and continued til I left at 8:30. Last night I kept 3 about 11-12 inchers, and released about 10 smaller and a few bigger. Heading to another different lake this afternoon (after school) to try some walleye fishing. Getting pretty easy to distinguish the female walleyes from the males, as their bellies are hanging low, tight full of spawn! lots of opportunity for ice fishing left! As we head into spring the fish tend to get more active feasting and fattening up to finish out their life purpose (spawning).

My bro and I went out last night (yes I know we missed the first half of the super bowl...but until the Vikes are in it I would rather fish).

We marked a lot of fish over 40 ft of water...but they were lock-jawed. Tried everything...minnows, minnow heads, waxies, plastics, small, big, active presentation, dead still...the best was when we completly let the waxie sit still. They were the lightest takes I have seen for a while.

I wonder if we left before they turned on? Left at 7ish.

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
