In Topic: Out for some splake

23 Splake is a great day any way you cut it.  I've never targeted or caught one before.Is there any size to them?

Bill good luck with your knee surgery.  My mother in-law had both replaced and now she's walking like a champ.  My father is scheduled for April.

 

The lake we were fishing in has crazy stocking numbers. The average size of the splake we were laking was 13 to 14 inches with some bigger.

~~~~Great report bud, haven't been out yet. I go under the knife in Feb for a new knee

 

Ya I've been out a few times. Been hitting a bunch of mechanical issues with my sled and auger. Got the sled all fixed up now but need to get things working with my auger. Luck one of the guys I fish with also has an auger so we have backups. Hope your operation goes well and for a speedy recovery.


In Topic: First steps on ice this year

Hi Alex good to hear from you and glad to hear you've got some decent ice.  I'm sure with this cold weather it's even built up some more.

Thanks for the post buddy.  You'll get em next time.  I've never caught a brookie through the ice may I ask how many inches they typically get on the water you're fishing?

Shallow, Deep, Bait?  I'd like to catch one through the ice to cross it off my bucket list.

 

Well I went out the next weekend and landed a brookie for the start of this season finally. The lake I was on had 5 good inches of ice. Usually with the ponds we hit for brookies, we will target them in about 5 to 10 feet of water. They usually feed in that depth of water. If the lake allows it, we use minnows and I will use small spoons and even some PK lures.Colors do vary from lake to lake. Some lakes gold colors work and some clown color works too. Just have to test colors and sizes. When lake does not allow live minnows, I will salt my dead minnows to use.

Ya bigger lakes will take time but looks like our small trout ponds maybe have some safe ice a bit late this year. Hope I will be on a lake in 3 weeks.


In Topic: Garmin purchase of Navionics: good or bad

25 November 2017 - 04:03 AM

I think smartphones will be working together with fish finders more in the future for sure. The only reason I would not be buying update packages for Navonics is the fact that the accuracy up in the northern lakes is not that great. Not enough people recording sonar readings to help update.
