Prairie Creek is lookin' screwed
« on: Dec 07, 2005, 07:06 PM »
Checked the bays today and there is about 1 inch of ice. Now the bad news.....there is also about 7 inches of air between the ice and the water. I hope its just around the bank and that the water is tight to the ice out further but I'm skeptical. If they don't stop letting water out before the main body freezes we could be done!
Never tell a fish where its supposed to be

Sounds like we may be in for a rough go at the Creek, air and all in between the ice and they still have to drain 5-6 more feet out of it.

That's ok Kid - you can hit Summit and join the 500 other people out there.  :-\ I'll be staying away from summit this year. 4-years ago, I tore up some nice perch and red-ear there.  Then the Indiana Fisherman article came out and so did the crowds - ain't been the same place since (can get bluegills anywhere).

I still catch em there Pimple (lived in Richmond for 3 years) and I know some honey holes (not the causeway or the campground cove - you have to hike to em).  Just saying its not what it used to be.  You even said you had to work for yours this week.  Used to not have to "work for em", especially during first ice as you probably remember....

I can remember tearing em up any day you went from 4pm on.  Don't get me wrong, I love Summit.  Just sad to see it so overwhelmed.  Used to be a nice kept secret for the locals..I was more of the deep water perch type anyway (out near the islands).  The perch fishing has gone way down.  I'm sure I'll still make at least one trip out there (I need mousies!). 

I know you have the summit touch - don't share those honey holes with too many people....word spreads fast!

Hey thanks Kid - its a good hour for me to head there now..

No argument there Pimp - honey holes aren't honey holes unles your catching fish.  I like putting folks on fish as well....just not 500 of them..

(By the way, you just need those fish cooked right and you'll eat em  :D )
