Ice Fishing New Hampshire / Re: Newfound Lake weekend of 2/17
« Last post by mowbizz on Feb 20, 2024, 10:57 PM »
Forgot to post from this past weekend. Pretty good weekend numbers wise for Newfound.

Saturday morning was beautiful, then around 1 PM a burst of wind and snow came through for about 30 minutes. It literally was snowing sideways. After that it was cold and windy. But that didn't stop the fish. I wound up with a couple flags, producing a .59 perch and later a 1.71 pickerel. I've never marked so many fish on Newfound on the flasher and not caught anything though. It was very frustrating. A couple of the guys in our group caught a few pickerel, the highlight being a 2.62 pickerel. Also a laker in less than 3' of water on a tip up which blew my mind.

Sunday was the more productive day. The cusk lines had a few fish to show for. I caught a .49 cusk, the bait was gone on a few others. Someone caught a 2.4 pound cusk, that was nice to see. We were able to get to a laker spot that we were unable to fish last year. Tons of marks, the fish were pretty aggressive chasing jigs. I hooked one and fought it for a minute or two before it shook loose. My friend went back to that spot in the afternoon and caught three lakers. I started to pack up and saw the jaw jacker pop and the rod was pumping, wound up with a 3.06 pickerel. I recently bought a new rod for my jaw jacker because the other one broke, so I was happy to see it produce a few fish.

Heading up again this coming weekend for what's likely the last kick at the can for me on Newfound.

Good report! I was in the area and the wife and I swung by the Cummings beach bay. It was strange to see so few fishermen out there, unlike other years where it’s pretty busy. Mother Nature I guess…

Ice Fishing Massachusetts / Eskimo
« Last post by NCSnowDog on Feb 20, 2024, 10:36 PM »
After checking a few areas in northern CT today I started thinking about my Eskimo ice fishing products and how reliable they are whether it’s augers or outerwear or accessories. And HT has some good stuff and some ok products. Eskimo and HT have stood behind their products if I had an issue for some reason but Frabill has flat out refused to fix a couple issues I had with their equipment for me in the past. Just wondering if guys share the same opinion.

My usual wp spot was slow only got one when usually I get flags all day. Yp and bass bite was good. Wp were in hiding. It happens periodically. I had a nice day and scenery was classic overcast with light snow. Perfect conditions imo.

I am glad we were able to pull the trip off, It really was quality time together.  I am also very happy to see him out doing his thing, it is all part of the life journey.  We have had many great adventures on and around the ice and I look forward to many more.

Nah, that's some bad luck and it happens to all of us at one point in time or another.
