You read my mind. I was gonna post something about ice fishing. I did a gear check on the weekend and i think i'm ready, just waiting for the ice. I fish the north side of Lake St. Clair, St. Annes Bay and do quite well for perch. Had a great season last year, my fishing buddy and i, combined, had a 1000 fish season. i also regularly fish Goose lake, and Johnson Bay.

I like to bore holes in the ice and try my luck for bass,pickerel,pike,crappies and perch or anything else that I can catch.
Hardwater fishing is just the ticket when hunting season ends and winter settles in.
This weekend I will go over my Jiffy 10" auger and make sure it runs good and sharpen the blades.I need to get some new gear for my traps also.
Some of the locals here are forming a"friday night crappie league"on a nearby lake.Should prove to be a real answer for the winter blahs. :thumbsup:
My lab is still the best hunting partner there is.

Well i'm going out this afternoon, i'll let you guys know how it went. Alittle nervous i've heard that the ice is only 2 inches in some places and 6 in others but we'll see. And remember always let someone know where your going just in case you don't come back they know where your at and where to send help.

When the bird hunting gets slow I am on the ice. The lakes are froze here and my first trip out this year was busy. I caught quite a few rainbows and none were braggers but 3 were 14' and tasted great :thumbsup:

We are going to check out a small lake that we crush the yellow perch in tomorrow. I am not a big guy...but I need more than two inches of hard water to fish on. I can't wait. Last year I never took my shotgun with me and we had geese fly over us all day long. This year I am going to be ready. And yes, it is legal...I checked it out.

Went out for the first time today. Slammed the bluegill and sunnys.
The guys behind us were partying big time. We slammed the fish..they slammed the beer. (OK we had a few beers ourselves to) Then they had a pizza delivered to their hut. I can say I have never seen that before. It was a good laugh.

34 perch (few blue gills in there) between two of us yesterday. Hitting the ice this morning to go after them again. It is going to be more like slush fishing. 40 degrees out. Stupid weather.

Was just in Utah fishing - Vernal area - when my buddies and me got to the lake we thought we shoulda brought a boat. Maybe 1/3 of the lake was open water with whitecaps cause of the wind. We checked out several spots where we have done well in the past - walk out a bit - punch a hole or two - move out a little punch again.
Last year same days in Jan. - 12" of solid ice- this year 4"- maybe - that don't look too safe neither. :salude: :salude: Couple of beers and all of sudden it seemed safe enuf after our long drive over. :thumbsup: No seriously we were like dogs sh_t'in fish hooks out there but we knew the fishin' would be good. Got a few nice bass and lotsa nice slab bluegills.

Anybody got any info on where in Utah a guy might get into some decent Crappie fishing? Vernal, Roosevelt or Duschense area - Iknow quail lake down south is good but looking for something a little closer to NW Colo.

Cheers,
MR
