Finally, ice is here
« on: Jan 23, 2021, 07:42 PM »
 ;D Well, now that the ice is here and should be safe on some of my local haunts I am trading in the lure and tying desk for some hard water adventure tomorrow. Today I tied a few more jigs and scuds along with 2 more musky #10 bucktails, you can never have too many bucktails. A little different than the other patterns from last year these 2 have bodyweights instead of beads and are separated by colored tungsten mini octopus beads. The electric lime green also has a red bucktail for a trigger point hotspot while the black is a teal blue and moon hollow skirt combined.


The Mrs. went to bed early so I ended up putting another bucktail together pike or Musky with a set of d8 blades Chart and black.


Just like a kid at Christmas, only going out for a fish tomorrow and can not sleep.

Ontario not got ice? I can drive the truck a some places here in NE WI. Minimum 12 inches and 14 - 16 in lots of places...  ;D
To fish or not to fish? That's a stupid question!

Went out for a quick explore today and found a few places with about 5"s of ice that would normally be 12-16 inches or more at this time. Work 12 hr. shift tomorrow and Tues Wed. I will be hitting an area that normally produces walleye on Wednesday. Can not wait, well I guess I have to wait.....lol
