Mdi ice report
« on: Jan 11, 2019, 08:26 AM »
Hello everyone, I am new to the site, and thankful for it since I donít use Facebook. Thought I would just give a quick synopsis of the local ponds on the island to add a little to the site. All the small ponds (round, bubble, echo, somes, Hamilton, upper and lower Hadlock etc have at least 6 inches of good ice although with the rain the inlet/outlets are sketchy. Jordan and eagle and long( the big three) are safe on the shallow ends but still not quite out in the deeper water. These three days of cold should lock them up well. I have fished seal cove and round and this year and the fishing has been slow for perch pickerel and bass. The brookie fishing is a much better bet. Hope this helps. Come on down.

I was on the NW arm of Long a couple days ago. About six inches there. It had been open from between the S and N Necks a bout a week ago, was frozen over as far as I could see when I fished. Slow fishing. One flag, one salmon. Jigged up one yellow perch.

Donít know what was up with the salmon,  which I kept (16 3/4Ē), the meat was what as a white perch and didnít taste very good. The dogs where welcome to most of it. The perch was excellent and one of the prettiest Iíve seen!

They have been finding a lot of nice perch in there. I donít fish for them but I know the state record was out of there last year until it was broken later that winter. 1.8lbs I think.

The Maine state record white perch weighed 3 lb 2 oz and was caught at Parker Pond in Jay in 2008

  I mean yellow perch. I donít catch many white perch in these parts.

Iíll be targeting them there this year. The one I caught was completely parasite free. Any suggestions on where Iíd land on them would be much appreciated!

Beautiful fish bud!
Fishing is easy. Catching is the hard part.
