Last day on the ice was today

Recommended Posts

I fished Long Lake by Centuria today. Fish have been biting real good there, also On Big Round, but called it quits today. On Long, there might be a couple to three days left with planks to get on, but being a "fat guy" like me....today was the last day.

It was an excellent ice fishing season here in Wisconsin for me....now its time for the boat......till late November anyway.

Oh say it isn't so. There is a tear in the corner of my eye. I am sad that today to was my last day on the ice for the year. It ended pretty good for myself. Second to the last fish for me was a nice 5.5 lb 25 inch walleye. Good end to a great season.

My last day was Saturday. We did OK fishing despite cold front conditionds and the wind blowing hard out of the NW. But had to make it out one last time.

Even with the plank I got wet getting off as the shoreline ice took a beating from the suna nd wind. But ended up with a meal of fresh crappies outof the trip so it was worth it.

My last day was yesterday. I fished Pike Bay (Cass) Saturday and a small Park Rapids lake yesterday. An 8 foot plank was fine yesterday to get on the ice, but I think you'd need a helicopter after today.

I'll miss the ice, but I'll try to console myself with turkey hunting, open water fishing, waterfowl hunting, and pheasant hunting until the ice comes around again.

Thanks to everyone for the contributing great information all winter.

    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?
