I called an audible friday night
« on: Jan 29, 2023, 06:03 PM »
So i made a last minute change and decided to go fish onota lake saturday.  Im glad i did.  There was 3.5 inch of solid black ice with 3.5 inch of white ice on top.  It was worth the 2.5hr drive.  Me and my son both caught our first pike through the ice.  His was a 27inch on a shiner and mine was 24 inch on a shiner. It usually pays o to go out and scout a (new to you) lake.  Im sure there are lots of reports on onota here but im new to ice shanty and took a chance because we didn't want to drive all the way to northern maine to find ice.   We had a great night camping on the ice. The weather was calm and not to cold.  We didn't get into any smelt but i learned a few things from the local fishermen.  Thank you to those that share the hard eared knowledge. We are looking forward to getting some colder weather ahead.  Hopefully we can get back there again this year. Tight lines to all. :tipup:

Nice job and congrats on the pike! We tried Onata the weekend before for the first time hoping to get our first one also, but the dreaded skunk is all we got. Some good ice will be made up there this week so hopefully anther shot will taken soon.

Nice work.  I was out there Saturday as well.  I believe I saw you on the walk out.  Did your son have his ice skates as well?  We fished for smelt the night before, landed 3 and handful of nice sized crappies in the mix so we didn't get back on the ice until about 10ish.  We struck out tip ups wise but landed more crappie jigging.

Thanks for all the replies.  I'm hoping to get out there again this coming weekend.  Does anyone have an updated ice report?
