had too much of a honey-do list to get out fishing last weekend. there's getting to be quite a bit of ice - guys have been fishing smaller lakes for a couple of weeks already. can't tell you about the bite though.

i was out on yellow last weekend about 6 inch of ice up to where the wind got a hold of it which was at about 4-5 feet of water. after 5 feet it was really unsafe with about 2 inches of soft ice. be safe out there on yellow, if u dont care about dying go for it. no walleyes but had a few tip-ups go up, but it was right in the cold front. good luck.

Have you guys heard how the ice conditions are on Clam Lake? And/or how the fishing has been? Myself and a bunch of guys are heading up there this weekend.

Clam Lake in Ashland Co. should be fine, not sure which one you are asking about though. Be Careful, a life was lost in Iron Co. this weekend, man on a three wheeler went through. Very Cold the last three nights!, making good ice.

tues fished devils lake,solid 4\5 inches out from access,caught bass,northerns and even a
large purch on a tip up,colder weather but no wind to deal with,several locals heading out around 2\3 in the afternoon with portibles,lots of vegitation,hard to find the breaks without lots of holes and looking
maxed out around 12ft

Clam Lake again is producing some nice trophy fish during the winter. Last week there was a pike over 25 lbs. pulled out. Along with that beast, there has been a handful over 10 lbs.pulled out. The panfish seem to come in spurts of 4-10 fish but nothing to brag about yet. The crappies seem to be a bit sluggish now, but I believe after the first of the year things will change. There have been a few nice walleyes taken 4+lbs. but Clam is not know for eyes. Fish 80-100 yards North of the public access and run tip-ups towards the open water. For panfish use a orange/white/black teardrop about 6-10 inches off the bottom. Pike have preferred medium shiners over suckers. Fish tip-ups 2 ft. below ice for best results. Good Luck.

yahbutzinSiren:

Welcome to the best forum. Good to see you here.

Thanks for the report. That's good information. I LOVE pike on tip-ups, and there's nothing like an hour's drive to get the blood pumping in anticipation of pike.

Sounds like maybe a fellow could throw out a couple tip-ups, one on the weedline and one in more open deeper water, and fish with teardrops and waxies on the third line for pannies along the weedline.

Would that work?

Any more info on that lake, I would really appreciate. If you feel like sharing more (not that you should, necessarily), post or e-mail. grin.gif

Sounds like a winner of a place to fish. But then, it's Wisconsin, after all.

P.S. -- Hope you're all doing well in Siren. Tornados suck.

Daughter and I fished Yellow Lake on saturday from 1 pm to 6:30 pm.Fished on the north end at the drop-off.We caught 8-10 walleyes but they were all 10"-13".Flurry of activity just after sundown for an hour then it quit.Did keep a couple big perch.Still could be good.The biggest one I've caught up there was a few years ago on new year's day.That was 24" and caught in 6' feet of water on a tip-up.Later.

You bet. Clam is a lake the has numerous pockets and line of weeds. In fact, during the summer months it is almost impossible to use any form of a lure that rides more than 3 feet below the surface. Well, I better get going-gotta fish ya know! Going to try out Devils Lake to bring in the new year.

Happy new year to all!

Devils lake has been handing out a few nice eyes 18-22 inches. Also been getting late night crappies 9-13 inchers. Been fishing the break in front of the resort in about 18 feet of water. Watch rod tip because the crappies are hitting lightly. Use glow jigs with 2"+ fatheads. There has been alot of traffic on the lake late into the night I wonder why????? Good luck!

the burlingame contest was a blast. lots of friends and food. if you didn't drink your beer in 20 minutes, it froze solid!! largest bass must have been almost 5 lbs, and largest pike was about 15 lbs. it'll be good to have the lake back to ourselves again!

on burlingame - up until two weeks ago, the sunfish and crappie bite was pretty good at sun-up and sun-down. we're in the mid-winter slump, i think. best bet is tip-ups. i'm off to florida for a week, so i won't be out there at all for a week. good luck.

    • I always use 6lb mono for jigging rods and And 8lb mono on deadsticks. No leaders for me I’ve debated it but it doesn’t really seem to make a difference if you have one or not. 
    • My thinking is the grease would make up for the gap, but wasn't sure if it'll still have too much play. Yet, don't want it too tight where it gets stuck.
    • I think the tube is DOM 1/2" thick. Was afraid 1/4" too thin and cannot find any other tube that would fit another solid rod inside. Don't want to get something I have to get machined $$$... At least with arm I can pull out and have another made if not good. Not sure how to make the grooves with hand tools?
    • I live in the burbs  on a cul-de-sac and the plow always leaves a huge pile at the end of my driveway. I bought a single stage Toro, and while I don't have a 2-stage to compare it against, I would definitely buy a single stage again. It's plenty powerful enough to handle the deepest, heaviest snow that accumulates on the driveway. When it comes to the pile at the end of the driveway, you just have to work your way though it by backing out and pushing into it again. Of course, if you're out of town or something and the pile at the end of the driveway freezes you might need to get out a shovel. But for most snowfalls I can clean the driveway in a matter of minutes - you almost have to run behind the thing to keep up with it.
    • Not a fan of leaders, far fewer bites with them on.   I typically run 4 or 6 lb test.  I do run 8 lb in water less than 8-10 ft.  I do this because thr fight is usually off to the sides of the hole, and the line contacts the ice edge at sharper angles.    
    • Just ordered the 16 piece jig kit yesterday. I am excited to get them and get out on the ice as soon as it is safe!
    • Hey,   What lb test line should I be using for Walleyes?  I've been using 4 lb but that seems a little light and I don't want to lose the big one, but don't want to get too heavy either.  Also, what's your input on using a leader?  I haven't but just wondering if I am missing something.
    • In my experience the best solution is to have both a single stage and a 2 stage.  The better 2 stage blowers out there will probably be fine for 90% of our snowfalls and in most cases they do a better job on the smaller snowfalls because they scrape the driveway cleaner.  The 2 stages are nice for the really big snowfalls, windblown drifts, and the snowplow drifts.  You can always deal with the lager snow falls by getting out once during the storm to clear the driveway so you don't have so much to do once its all done.    I've had ok luck with a Snapper single stage handling snow plow drifts and smaller wind blown drifts.  You have to go slow and maybe chop up the drift with a shovel if its too big but its doable.  Even if you have to break up the drift a little with a shovel that can be easier than maneuvering a large 2 stage at times.    If I could only have one blower I'd probably opt for one of the larger single stage blowers.  My wife has a hard time handling my large Toro 2 stage and most of the time its just over kill for smaller snowfalls and ends up taking more time than a good single stage would. My mother in law has the Snapper single stage and she can run that just fine on her own so I think almost anyone could. 
    • I would go with DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel). You can find it on-line just a bit pricey unless ypu have a steel supplier nearby that can order it. http://www.aladdinsteel.com/products/dom_seamless_tubing/?gclid=CjwKCAjwwdTbBRAIEiwAYQf_E0tV3qM59rsqxJ1i9ao2mL2_KQ8HhbIdOj_i1FHOUOd9ycq8L9tY0BoCQbIQAvD_BwE#top 1/16, .062 could produce a lot of shift depending on the lenght of your pivot arm. I like .020 max and grove the solid in a level wind criscross pattern for grease distribution. Being steel on steel grease often. During summer also and drop/raise house several times.
    • I think you are good , you need to have room for a ton of grease.
