Batterson
« on: Feb 04, 2019, 09:25 AM »
Thinking about trying batterson park ping one night after work this week. Never been there before. Is the only access at the launch? Are there any spots that are better than others to set up?

I have never been but its 15 mins from the office so I'd be inclined to meetup if the ice doesn't take a beating.

I'd be really careful on that lake if you have never been, it is always the last to freeze in the area, and rarely does, and never seems to put much thickness when it does freeze up. This warm weather would make it a dicey option. As for spots, it hasn't been open to ice fishing for long, I have yet to talk to anyone who has figured it out and I've only been out once. Used to open water fish it a lot, there is a pretty substantial hump mid lake I always figured may hold fish in the winter.
A smart person would watch the few that ventured to the ice sheet, the daring would follow in their boot prints, but the pioneers would already be heading to where they belong.

7"of pretty solid ice still. Walked right on. I'm sure you'll need a plank by the end of the week

Wow, makes me feel good about the weekend if batterson is holding up, wondering how you did, always low on my list of lakes to head, I have seen how beat up that lake gets by the shore fishermen in the summer, basically a strictly fillet and release lake with no consideration to size restrictions. Mmmm, save some 11" largemouth for me, sad but true.

Funny you say that. There was a massive pile of white and yellows like 30 feet off the launch that someone filleted and left right on the ice. Ended up getting a few good size perch right before dark. Stayed till about 7 and took off as two other groups were just walking on. Talked to a guy who said he's seena couple massive walleye caught. Sadly none were taken tonight

On a lighter note, stopped by Batterson today, only had a spud bar, chipped what thought looked like 7-8" off the boat launch, about 30' out. Again, spud bar, so due diligence going across, but had a bit of snow still on it, looks like it melted with the sun, and refroze as I was on it close to 5pm. Also an abandoned boat at the launch.

Was out there late last night also. Sorry  to see I wasn’t the only one not doing to well. Not many flags, but a beautiful nite till clouds rolled in.

It was a great night to be out for sure. Wasn't cold, no wind, storm moving in... I had high hopes. I would've stayed later if not for my lame buddy, but he was out there all day and wanted to go. I didn't make it out til 430.
We were near a group of 4 that was planning on spending the night out there and had gotten some nice cats and walleye the previous weekend. I wonder how they did.
