The perch were not exactly jumping out of the holes at Etter's today. Wind and cold kept us pop up bound, so we were happy to bring home some nice jumbos ranging from 11 to 12 inches. The pike and walleye that cruised by showed no real interest. Our bite occurred mid - day. The afternoon got very, very quiet.
No tulibee.

Fun day at the regional with my son in law daughter and grandkids. We set up the tent and tipups and had a blast catching and releasing a few pike. Pop hot chocolate smokies and hot dogs for lunch. Peter had the first pike a very large Pike on the jawjacker. Andrew was so interested in watching his dad reel it up that he forgot to reel his line in. The pike grabbed his bait too and before we knew it his rod flew down the hole. After a bout four huge runs Peter started gaining  and when he got her turning up the hole we saw Andrew's rod sideways across the hole preventing the fish from coming up. I was able to use the gaff to pull Andrews lure out of the fish then I grabbed the handle of his rod and pulled that up minus a couple of inches of the rod tip.  The pike went crazy and made one more run snapping Peters line. . We settled down and one of the Ice riggers outside went off this Time Peter landed a nice pike.
 heres a few pics of todays fish.

Anglerbrian, looks like a grand old time up at the regional park. Is there any pressure ridges up in that area that make areas inaccessible? I am looking to go up there next weekend just wondering if I have to do some maneuvering out there.

There is nothing for pressure ridges and very little snow. You can drive anywhere.

Was out today north of the Regional Park. Took my Mom and Dad out for some pike action. We forgot a wooden polar tip up out there.. it's got a lot a sentimental value. Hoping someone finds it. Probably a pike on the line....

I trekked over to Midway today limited out on Walleye bu8t had to work for them.
They did start to get active at sundown but I was fishing deep so took my 4 Eyes and three perch and called it a day.
 Tullibee were also hungry today. Can't stand the smell of them so back they went.

Love your fishing ethics Anglerbrian and it's nice to see you are passing these practices on to the younger generation!

Mother Nature won a unanimous decision today off TTT. The perch were very shy in the morning. Once the wind picked up mid day, things got really interesting. The wind lifted my buddy's tent right off the ice, breaking the tie down strings. He could only watch in shock as it blew down the lake for about half a mile. By the time he drove over to it, the tent was a wreck. I didn't dare move out of my hard bottomed pop up because I was the only thing holding it in place.

On the bright side, we did see 11 bull elk on the drive to LML; most still carrying their antlers.  We also got great gas mileage heading home.

Thinking of going to either high house or midway tomorrow with my shack. How's the access? Maybe the fish will turn on with the big storm coming.

I'm wondering the same thing. My son is chomping at the bit to get out and catch these. It ducks that I'll be gone for work 2 weeks this month.

Nice going cerndo, good looking pike and walleye. :)

Way to go anglerbrian and company. You guys found some dandy sized pike at the N end and nice perch, walleye and cisco / tullibee at midway. @)
Lucky that you got the rod back, the 2 rods I have lost down the hole were gone for good,lol. :whistle:

I was out on March 2nd at Rowan's Ravine and found 7 pike.
They were all decent size, but one stood out from the rest. :)
Full report to come in a bit. ;)

I wonder how access will be like at LML after this heavy snowfall.  ???
I bet it will tough getting on for a while now. :P

Is this an odd year, or are this many pressure ridges common for LML..

Ira484,

Which regional park?
I am taking out a 81 year old tomorrow and hope to have access to the lake.

You need to have a way that we fishermen can pay you for opening ways to the lake.

Thanks
