Default If the weather persists Elevenmile.....

If the weather persists Elevenmile will be open soon. There is already spots that are open on the lake. I emailed Larry and he said he is hoping that the ice stays safe for the last ice fishing tourny. I want to tell everybody on this board that early ice off at Elevenmile is sometimes very good fishing. Some of the biggest trout of the year are caught then so get out there and fish. My favorite technique is to tie on a tube jig and smear it with smelly jelly. Then I throw it on the ice and slowly retrieve it so that it falls off the edge. Then I let it hit bottom and slowly work it back. I have had times where I have caught 10 trout in 30 min.!!!!!! All of them at least 16 inches and a few in the 20 inch range. I would like to inform you guys that the trout are spawning then or getting ready to spawn so selective harvest is critical at that time. I don't keep any but i don't expect people not to keep any but maybe just keep one or two good ones not 4. Later and good luck.
