Hyalite getting cold!
« on: Nov 11, 2019, 01:19 PM »
I fished the Hyalite last week. Some skim ice, especially in the coves. Open water was still open. Did well casting spinners along the ice edges. Can't wait for 3-5 inches, without snow. Early ice can be great. Once the ice covers, it will grow fast. I bought a new pair of floatation bibs at Sportsmen's Warehouse. Got the Big Boy size so I can wear clothes under it. Auger is tuned and the sled is waxed.

As cold as it has been lately, there should be a few inches on the lake. Let me know if anyone has been there. Christmas tree cutting season is on so maybe someone can check it out. Looking forward to 5-6 inches of safe ice without a ton of snow on it.

It's precisely that, if not thicker near launch/dam. Iced 12 trout between the 3 of us, fishing from 3-6pm. Lots of action, plenty of misses. There were maybe 4-5 other people/groups/shanties that came and went as well.
