Moorland pond

Anybody hit it today since the trout stocking? Five of us ended with 20 fished all day though.

A friend and I hit it up Tuesday during midday for four hours. We had never been there before. We ended up landing 6 and losing 4. The best method seemed to be dead sticking small jig/bait combos.

Just another update on this hole. Fished it again yesterday for 2 1/2 hours, leaving with our limit between two guys. Never moved once. Seemed to pay off big time to stay quiet and keep movement to a minimum.

Rat Finkee made my hands stinky!(once again)

I recognize the "pics or it didn't happen" thing, but I haven't a clue how to post them. Any help??

I'm telling all of you once. If you want to catch trout there, fish in 4 FOW with a 1/32 ounce jig and a minnow hooked through the lips. All you do is look down the hole and jig from 1 foot off the bottom to 1 foot under the ice. Keep repeating this until you see a trout. Then at two foot down just jig the heck out of your rod and wait for the trout. It helps if you hit the ice with your scoop as it calls in the trout.

My cousin and I caught these ten in honestly 10 minutes. We fished for 4 hours in one spot and caught probably 90 trout. Saw one of the big ones too.
 I'm seriously not ****ting you or pulling your leg or nothing. We didn't go 5 minutes without a trout I swear.

just got off the pond, while there is open water at the west end, we had a good 8" of ice under us wherever we drilled, caught 3, missed one at the hole, a lot of missed bites and stolen minnows, we were using swedish pimples, one tipped with minnows/heads and another tipped with waxies, could get a few to buy what we were sellin but that wasn't quite what they were lookin for

They seemed a bit tougher yesterday for us. We used pink 1/32 oz jigs with minnows, totally deadsticking. I had another hole near with an aggressively jigged bait. Almost every time they hit the still jig instead. Fished in 6 feet of water.

Stirring the water under the hole never hurt in the last 33 years I been icing.  Some rickety old gal showed me that my first week ice fishing.

Dont be lazy and get on the web to beg for a report then. My cousin fell through across from the beach and I've heard of several others. If you still got an attitude please go check it out, hopefully a nice swim will soothe your "cramps"  ;D

walleye warrior i didnt ask for a report online and i get my fair share of fishing in myself. ive read ur post about all the people catching fish at brushy and what not and i dont doubt that your cousin took a drink over by the beach. that area has been sketchy ice all season long but why would u get on the moorland pond thread and say probably rotten. also when you mention anything about brushy you failed to mention that there is still 12-14 inches of ice from the north boat ramp to midlake. i was just out there today if your wondering from when those ice reports are. i agree that people need to check themselves and not solely rely on the internet but ur post are misleading to outdoorsman that are just looking to get out and have a good time. tight lines and the best of luck to you the rest of the season with my only point being if your cousin fell through on the worst ice all year at brushy creek you shouldnt go on the moorland pond thread and say that there ice is probably rotten.

Ice around shore is getting rotten, any fool should know that. As well that brushy ice will be short lived based on the conditions on the north ramp getting on or thin ice around trees everyones not talking about.

Asking about ice conditions is a whole different thing than asking how or where to catch fish in said body of water.  No one wants to drive an hour only to discover unsafe ice.  If anyone asks me advice on local waters I always help. Seems like something you should do, one angler to another, even though for me, the search is half the fun.
