Last Mountain Lake 2018-2019
« on: Sep 26, 2018, 03:29 PM »
With the small snowfall we had last week the ice fishing bug has hit in full force. Auger is all tuned up, had a coquette style shack built for early ice and the tackle box has been organized with the ice lures. With all that out of the way its time to start thinking about touching up the permy. Does anybody know anyone around Regina who makes cusions for benches?

I got my cushions at Globe Fabrics on Park st. My wife sewed them up with some Camo fabric and they look good. The foam was pricey but seems to be holding up well. There are two difference types of foam, rigid and soft. i went with rigid for the seats and soft for the backs.  My dad did the same thing in his shack with the same results.
If I've learned anything, it's there's a first time for everything.

I'm sure we've all seen some of the reports of a few of the smaller lakes starting to lock up. Does anybody have any reports for LML?

8 to 8.5 inches at Collingwood out to about 27 feet of water.  Nice relaxing day catching perch and Walleye.

That's crazy!  I wouldn't think the ice would be thick enough or consistent enough for trucks to venture on the ice.  That being said, I've never fished up in that area of LML.  I was just thinking it's only 1.5hrs from Saskatoon.

im fairly new to lml, we didn't get started there last year until fishing was closed in the bay, is that a popular spot for pike on tip ups?
we fished the mouth of the bay 8-10 fow with average luck, and out further into the deeper water for perch and walleye..

Good job. We're currently sitting in 17 ft of water at wee too, with shawno, and not a sniff.

Shawno and I spent the day on Wee Too.  He managed a Tulibee and a perch.  Activity on the camera came in spurts but nothing wanted to commit.  6-7 inches of hard clear ice at Wee Too.

The most notable part of the day was when we felt what could only be described as a wave come through.   We literally raised up and down 3 or 4 inches as it passed under us.  Looked outside and a decent pressure ridge heaved up to the East of us halfway into the lake.

That must have been weird. I have felt some pretty good bumps. I measured 8 to 8.25 inches of ice at Collingwood but didn't even venture close to the center of the lake. We fished 24 to 27 foot depths max perch were coming in waves on the camera the guys had in the tent. I just had steady action all day sitting out in the wind. The perch were all differentnorth end has with lots of small guys robbing the lures right out of the mouths of the bigger ones.  At the North end near the Regional Park there is about 11 inches of ice. Some are driving on there but I like to wait for 12 to 14 inches.  Then I will go chase some big Pike.

Nice pile of perch and dandy looking walleye, good going anglerbrian and company.  @)

I have also felt a few unsettling pressure waves when vehicles have went by me too fast, but, nothing like you guys felt, and saw, jpicks.
That would be freaky for sure. :blink:

Heading out to Collingwood on Saturday with a couple buddies for the first trip of the season, a little later than I would have liked!  Hoping to get into some of those perch and walleye like anglerbrian!

We usually try to find 25-30' of water and fish for perch/walleye using smaller lures, and always end up toying with a few whitefish on the flasher.  Does anyone have experience using tipups at Collingwood while also fishing deeper for perch/walleye?  I am not sure if a guy could find shallow enough water to put the tip up out and still be within range of your deeper holes.

Any tips or ice/fishing updates are always appreciated.  Tight lines!
