I did a drive-by yesterday at Palm and Congress Lake Rds.  Palm was completely locked as well as the east side of Congress Lake Rd.  The west side of Congress Lake had an open spot at the culvert.

I like the solitude and quietness of ice fishing.  And in addition to that, most folks out there are true fishermen.  True fishermen are ethical, friendly, and like to keep the environment cleaner than what is was when they got there.  I've never met a true fisherman I didn't like.

I have  Mora 6".  I'm on my second year with the same blades and they still cut great. This year it really got a workout too.  One of the key things to remember is to not bang it on the ice.  Once a blade gets the tiniest burr in it, it will plane upwards.  Just lay the auger blades on the ice and let the rotation do the work.

I'm thankful I got out of Lansinger Rd. in my car last night without having to call a Tow Truck!!!  That was a real cliff hanger!

I hear ya fishingful. When I got there the road was frozen and I had no problem getting in.   I came out of there last night at 6:30.  I was in my car.  A compact Hyundai.  I'm still a nervous wreck and very thankful I made it out of there.  The problem was this guy in a 4x4 was 4 wheeling up and down the road all afternoon.  Joy riding slinging mud.

Fished a couple hours yesterday on SR 43 side. Bite was slow, only caught a few and couldn't stay long. I've met some of the nicest folks out there over the last few time out.  Everyone seems so willing to share, help, ect.  Ice fishing........there is no substitute.

Oh yeah....forgot to tell you.  The lure I was getting most of my bites on was size 6 Swedish Pimple of the purple variety.  If you don't have one, I can tell you at the moment they are hard to find.

I was out off of Catawba Tues.  The bite was slow but the fish were enormous.  Most of them were 27" and above.  I'd send a picture but haven't learned yet how to downsize them enough to meet the minimum size requirement for pictures on this site.

We're on the downside of the season.  It'll get tougher to find them as time goes on.  Even the old standby holes are starting to slow way down now.'s still beats no ice!  You can still find them if you continue to move around like you're doing.   Nice post!

Hit CLR yesterday for a couple hours for an evening fish.  Bite was slow, fish were decent size, ice is still holding at 8 to 19, weather was spectacular!  What a beautiful site watching the sun set over the frozen lake.  With no wind to speak of, those of use fishing "without shanty" were able to enjoy a little warmth as the setting sun hit our faces. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining but yesterday evening was a rare experience for this ice fishing season. 

General Discussion / What a Year!!!
« on: February 08, 2014, 08:35:44 AM »
I'm tellin ya, this has been one fantastic year for safe ice. I woke up this morning  and it was 4 degrees.  Fantastic!  But.......when I walked out, I heard the song birds singing...always a sign Spring isn't too far off.  Next thing you know it'll all be over.  I'm making every effort I can as of this post to drill as many holes as I can before the inevitable happens.

trapperjon....I never did get out off of Saxe Rd......I haven't been over on that side of the Lake for several years now.  However, I'm not above making the trek.

holehopper.....sorry about getting back late.....I went fishing all day yesterday and never got a chance to reply.   The fishing on the 43 side was slow, but quality was nice.  I ended up with a combination of gills and perch.  I threw allot of the perch back due to the delicate condition they were in.  Fist size bellies full of eggs.
