Lake buel
« on: Feb 25, 2022, 04:58 PM »
Anyone been on lake buel since the warm spell. Went a few weeks and from the ice that was still there after that warm spell Iím guessing it would be fine.  There was 13-14 inches of black ice then

Did you mean the one in Monterey/new Marlborough, went there and it was locked up good. About 12 inches of ice, edges were soft just a few feet out.  I jigged one rainbow trout and caught a couple pickerel after many flags. My girlfriend jigged up a rainbow, a brookie, a mix of a half dozen sunfish, and two pickerel.  She killed it

Good going, Mogli!

I'm glad to hear you and your girlfriend had a more productive day on the ice than I did.

Thanks, hope your luck changes the next time out.  Had a ok day at Cheshire reservoir(north end) for the afternoon yesterday.  I got two pickerel and two bass on tip ups and she got a bass and a perch off tip ups and a perch jigging. One pickerel sat on our spot not biting but just going between our jigs for hours. Killed the action but the wind and snow were fun to watch.

Buffumville is a far better pike fishery more natual reproduction going to be a top notch pike fishery in worcester county and hardly any pressure. Guys are too lazy to walk to the good spots

Neither are great for pike if that's what you are looking for. Just saying.

One was great but I counted at least 9 20+ pounders killed for pins or the wall in the past decade.  I know of 4 others that were released.  One by me, one by a friend, another by a friend on my boat in open water and 1 caught by 2 guys fishing next to me one year. 

Can't be great for pike when that happens...and even before those harvests it was never the spot to do numbers.  It was the only spot I fished until I got the fish I was after.

Launch held and ice was solid, only four groups on the ice all day Sunday.  About twelve inches of ice under the crusty slush.  Fishing was good. I caught a few pickerel, a perch, brookie and a rainbow.  Felicia killed it again jigging.  A tiger trout, 2 rainbows, and about a dozen gills.  Kept seeing pike on the underwater camera for the last few hours.  Set off one tip up but dropped the bait and another time through snagged the bait without setting off the flag.

That's awesome.  I sold some calls on crude to make the extra cash for fuel.  Tuna time nears.
