Have no idea if I spelled that right.

Anybody know how the ice is out there, and how the action is?

Looking to head over there after the holiday if all works out ok.

Thanks

Good job on the name!!!!
Talked to a co-worker that went out off the S-curves south of Washburn last week before the rain . He said that there was 4-5 inches but it was pretty hairy because it was windy.
He said it was pretty slow only 4 flags and nothing on jigging.Hopefully myself I will beable to get out there after the holidays.

good luck!

FLAGG!!!!

OK, you got me there.

What in the world are the "s-curves" South of Washburn? I fished around Washburn in the summer and fall, but never saw or heard of anyone refer to an "s-curve" before.

Robert,

Great to see ya here. Probably won't be up for ice( not cause I don't want to-- would love to try for the splake and browns ), but I WILL be up in May and/or June for the smallies and would appreciate any info, even though local bait stores and guides do a great job of posting elsewhere on the net.

Even so, keep posting on the ice --- I might not be able to fight the urge to come up.

I would like to come up and fish the bay for smallmouth and walleye. I hear there is a pretty nice motel there in Ashland to stay at. What would be the best plan of action? Go to the bait shops and ask around? Any tips as to timing would be appreciated. Good fishing.

Lots of motels in Ashland. The pretty nice one will probably run you 2 bills a night though-- not including wine and cheese. Was up there last June and it seems there's a price war midweek. Curvecrest had a sign out advertising $29.99 for a double bed. Looked nice enough and I'll be checking it out this May. Last year we camped north of Drummond to save some money-- about 30 min. from Asland depending on how many roadsides you stop at smile.gif.

Hey robert492 when those perch wont bite drop a 100th oz white glow jig down tipped with a spike and see what they do.
When we leave Club 13 and drive north the highway is always nothing but s curves.

Robert or anyone else on the board. I will be coming up to the bay the weekend of the 25th. I've never ice-fished it before, and am looking for someone to answer the tons of questions I have. My email is [email protected]

    • that looks slick but probably pretty spendy if you need to use the refillable cylinder. I wonder if coleman would work?  I just watched a different video where the one pounders are filled while using a small curved forceps to vent while filling. Went to garage and filled 3 that way. Worked dandy. Nothing has to be chilled. 
    • The one thing I liked on my Elite-5 was that when a fish was about to bite the return would turn very red. I don' tget that with the Showdown. Bit it does get a darker black.
    • did you just keep it square and cut a slot through it? any idea which one? seems like a bunch of options; https://www.homedepot.com/b/Building-Materials-Glass-Plastic-Sheets/LEXAN/N-5yc1vZbrdgZ5tg   i see 11x14" sheets for $8 a piece, but they only have a .093" thickness  
    • Chip is on the list, but will wait to see how good the included mapping is. Making my own will be great as there are no detailed maps for a lot of water I fish.   I may have triggered someone here with that link. 2 more sold since my last post. Seller also has the 5 for a good price. My eyes aint getting any younger though! 
    • I got an old  10lb'er on craiglist  for $10 a few years ago, got it re-certified at a local propane co-op and never looked back.  I love it.   Has anyone used this, if so how do you like it: Flame King Refillable 1 LB Empty Propane Cylinder Tank  with Refill Kit that looks like it would be ideal. 
    • I'm sure you included that link for a reason, so I'll go ahead and say it...you got a crazy good deal on that Helix 7!   It's going to take a little getting used to compared to the Vex, but you're really going to enjoy it.  Assuming you already have a Lakemaster Chip for it, or are getting one?
    • I’ve had this same issue myself for years. I like using a hose to a bigger tank but the 20lber is impractical unless able to drive out. I’ve searched for the 5lb and can find them easily ( Cabela’s, Fleet Farm). But the price will kill a guy. I can buy 2 maybe 3 20lb cylinders for the price of one 5lb. My solution, just continue to buy and use 1lb. Sams club is by far the cheapest at $12.50 (ish) for a 4 pack. I can usually get by on about 1 cylinder per 2 outings on average. Takes 4-6 4 packs per season for Me. Which yes is a lot compared to just refilling them but “convince” is more appealing then the cost IMO.
    • I used lexan... thought about using plexiglass but plexi and cold don't mixed when you have little ones around. I can stand on these and I am 275#
    • anyone ever cut some out of clear plexiglass for their hole covers with a gap for your line for rattle reels/bobber rods? i wouldnt think they would have to be round to fit exactly in the hole,  just a square to protect from falling objects would work? $17+/cover seems steep from the store
    • I needed something newer in the boat so I got a helix ice 7 coming tomorrow and will be wet by Friday.  I already have a vex 8,18, and 20 so it better blow my socks off! The 8's days might be numbered.. The ability to make your own lake maps really appealed to me as I like more out of the way places. I ice fished so much last year the noise of the vex started to wear on me. Terrible problem right? haha  I needed another good reason to get out in the boat more too..    Nobody had them in town nearby so I shopped price and who could get it to me asap. Decided yesterday to do this and "needed" it by tomorrow.  This seller offered both price and speed. Helix ice 7 549.00 shipped
