Title: another round?
Post by: g on March 01, 2019, 08:11:09 PM
Another short round maybe coming. The temps in central Oh next week look favorable for giving is some ice. Hope there is no wind and we could be walking on water next weekend. Hope springs eternal.

Was thinking the same thing.   We might get a handful of days after this.  Love to get out once or twice more.  Even if it痴 without the Wilcraft.  Just drill a few more holes and pull some fish through them!

Well see.  I was optimistic till I went to my best spots yesterday and saw tons of open water at least 30 feet off shore.  Both lakes were definitely more open water than ice.

Checked Indian tonight and got knocked out. Checked 3 places, 2 I really wanted to fish and the other I would have fished, and all had junk ice. Good old spud bar told the story, 3 hits and through. Done for the year unless I get a wild hair and go to Mi. Good luck to anyone lucky enough to get out. SPUD YOUR WAY out AND BACK and be safe.

Fished moggy yesterday and today, until the rain. 20+ perch both days (60% keepers) with a few 5lb cats. Caught fish anywhere from 8-20 fow. Ice was 5"+ out on the main lake, 3" off the launch. A little sketchy on the way in today with the ice cracking and popping. Ice season over!

Great job kickn ice. Glad you were successful at catching fish and making it out and back. Be extremely cautious if you venture out again.

Nice job kichn ice and glad you made it back in safely. I saw a report on Facebook that a couple two people had to be rescued. Looked like possibly the south end by the cemetery.
