Henry's 2018
« on: Aug 02, 2018, 03:53 PM »
Ok so I know its a bit early for this but man have I had it with the heat and NO precipitation this year. All I can do is sit inside and think of ICE!!!! I will start working on my new sleeper (clamx200) soon and that will keep me going till this trip. Check your emails as I have sent out the 1st of many between now and December. I changed things a little this year. Tightlines

Hi Guys, Thanks Matt for putting this together again this year and all your efforts with planning. Post some pictures of the progress on the sleeper when you get going. I'm looking forward to hardwater season already for sure.
Hope everyone is having a great summer.
I hope i'm half as good as my Dogs think i am ;-)

Its no problem, I had to change it up a little for how I was putting the room together, as last year got a bit hectic. As usual I tied to get the most bang for the buck for the group and it was great the way they treated us opening up the other rooms. This year will still be a good time and they are going to accomodate us just the same. I will get a post going of the x200 when I get it in the garage. One thing I forgot to mention in the email was to keep the gear swap thing going again this year, so everyone should bring some things they might be willing to trade with. Now I know not everyone wants to haul a bunch more stuff up there but if theres 1 or 2 things you might willing to trade then lets keep it going. I'll be looking hard at some of my stufff when I start taking the ice gear out this year

I hear ya, its time!!! Thought I would post that story on here you sent me this morning Slap

https://www.eastidahonews.com/2018/06/fish-arent-surviving-in-henrys-lake-looks-to-be-a-very-bad-season/

Guess I dont know how to take this, I know the big fish numbers have been declining for many years but our catch rates for our group have been fairly good numbers wise and atleast 98% of the fish we catch go back in great shape. We never really have had huge amounts of BIG fish, just the one here and there. Maybe 2-3 each year  :-\ Oh and on another note the peeps with underwater cameras there see a ton of fish that just dont bite

iI can see that Iím going to need to get busy with a couple of ideas to keep up with you. That Jaw Jacker idea of yours is 1st rate. Still looking for a new flip over, guess they wonít hit the stores until late Oct. New Clam units claim 50% more insulation. Might be better to wait. Love this cold weather!

 Definitely going to use a towbar. Going to try and rig up one that I already have With quick release pins.  Having a really rough day today as far as pain goes. Hopefully between now and then that will go away and life will be good again. Thanks for being such good friends to me guys!

Hey Joe, do hope you are feeling better today, that first day after the heavy duty hospital meds wear off is a butt kicker, that's when you feel all that sawing and drilling and heavy duty body mod pain... something about that deep bone pain that is not good for sure, but it will get better... Hopefully you can sleep through most of that nasty pain days... Will keep ya in our prayers... Later J

I actually find it funny that there seems to be some bad feelings toward ice fisherman up there.  We generally have a whopping 30-40 days that Henry's is frozen before closing for 5 months, spend a short weekend there, and almost always catch and release everything.  Even if it was ice fished heavily by others, I don't think anybody can clear the lake out in 30 days with a limit of 2 even if they went everyday.  If we catch 100 fish between 15 of us, well over 90% will be returned promptly health and unharmed. 

Second, there is no such thing as bad fishing, plus I'm really just going up there to eat, play poker, make bad bets with Joe, and enjoy the hot tub.

;D  I completely agree Slap - it's more of a social gathering with a side of fishing thrown in for good measure.  And there isn't one darn thing wrong with that.  Go for it with gusto guys.

Im right there with you guys also  :thumbsup: and what a good social gathering it is

Hi guys! May I ask where you stay at Henryís lake?

We stay lakeside at Jareds wild rose ranch, not the best brookie area but the big hybrids and cuts are around. Travel by machine to good brookie areas is doable depending on the ice conditions from there
