Jizm Lake Happening Prelude.
« on: Jan 13, 2022, 05:26 PM »
Started fishing at 830am 40F it was freekin nice out.   Total count was around 150 in 3 hrs. Stopped fishing at Noon.Mostly 7.5"-8.75". Most keepers in the 8.5" range.. Silver/green Kasty with perch eye at 30 ft was the ticket.  it seems the fish are about 1" longer than last year.  That bodes well for the next couple years I hope. ;D

The lake needs some thinning out of the herd.   Its a great place to take the kids or GF or whomever.  Just get up there and get some exercise and harvest a sheet load of these things! ;D

In a couple years the perch will be decent sized again.

Warm, Sunny, Action, Fun, and some Exercise!  It's what I live for.  If they were a little bigger it'd be the bomb! ;)

Just walk to the dam, walk onto the lake, and walk to the back if you wish!  We caught these just out from the dam- ;)

You would have gotten a lot more exercise if you had fished where I did.  Just sayin.  ;)  Not sure that I can make it on Monday but you should bring an army to thin the herd.  Yeah, unfortunately or fortunately limit is 20.

What do you suggest on getting the equipment in there?  Hand auger, backpack, or can you drag a small sled in there?

There was this dude barely moving up the 'Hill O Death'.  I bet it took him a half an hour. Hacking all the way. I saw him at the top as we were fishing but never saw him fish. I think he just went back home- :P

Sledding is possible right after a snow.  But, they quickly plow the caretaker's road in, unfortunately.  Right now, there are bare spots that make sledding harder.  With the warm weather, probably even more bare spots and the "hill of death" up the dam is often bare rocks.  I backpack the gear into the dam and bring a small sled (like Slayer's kid sled) for once on the ice.  As long as the dam ice is safe (and it appears to be so right now), you can walk the mile to the dam with gear in a 5-gallon bucket or 2.  If sketchy ice near the dam, I try to backpack everything for the hike around.  Fee for parking is $7 a day.

Catfishking. 11.5" is incredible perch from what I have seen for the past few years.  Great job.

Slayer, that could have been me scaling that hill.  And I could have gotten disgusted and left because someone was on my spot.  ;D

Jeez Dropshot is north of 70 he ran right up that hill. ;D

Gotta pack light. I can fit everything in my medium sized backpack. Sonar, lunch, water, 2 rods, some clothing. Oh and bring your cleats!  Someone didn't bring theirs the other day and it woulda sucked to walk to the Isla without them.  ;)

I donít think Ft. Collins got any snow today, Friday.  I live in Loveland, and very few flakes fell; almost unnoticeable.

Nice pile of tiny tacos, Mike!   ;D
Wow, 11.5Ē is a monster from there, BrianóSweet!

Yeah, pack light.  Backpack and bucket, no sled.  Donít even need a flasher by the island.  Just drop a pimple or kasty down to the bottom and bam.  Itís CATCHING, not fishing.

Not sure Iím gonna make it Monday, but Iíll let u know   ;)

Went there yesterday with a friend; there were around 9 guys by the dam.  Perch were easy to catch, a couple of waxies and eye balls lasted until limit.  The hike is easy and good exercise, the drive and the fillet time are not worth it due to the size of the perch.  The perch in that lake needs to be thin out so the remain fish can get bigger since there are so many of them.  Also caught a 15" brown which fought like a 20 inchers.

Just like the last time. Got one that went 10.5". HUGE! ;D. 4 of us Me Johnny O Dropshot and Colorado Bob all trekked back to the island and inlet area. some good exercise and fun was had by all.  iT DOESNT GET ANY EASIER THAN IT NIS NOW! ;D. Almost any depth and method will catch perch.  Most are 8"-8.5". 

Johnny got a bunch of suckers for Laker bait!

Nice.  Did you walk on the ice the whole way to the back or do some overland hiking?  I will have to make the trek again soon.  The herd might need more thinning.

Hey Slayer I have a question about your filets! It almost looks to me like you do not cut out/off the rib bone section before cooking?
