dallasdb First time ever ice fishing we were on Evergreen during early ice. It was 4-6" but went from 4" to less than 2" in less than 15 feet.

We used the spud bar all around where we were fishing to be safe.

Every crack Bandrews and I would shoot each other a quick glance.

Then all of a sudden a huge "WHOOOOOOOSSSHHHHHH!!!" a sudden gust of wind went right between us.

The group near us started laughing and could tell we were newbies. Turns out it was dateacher and his friends!

blowfish Nothing gets the heart pumping and the blood flowing like an early season icequake on 11 Mile while fishing on 2" of ice!

Had my mom on Evergreen last year and it was a really warm day. Ice was ~10" and a loud 1/4" crack opened up right in front of her. She lost it! It was great.
If that's what you call it. Lmao. I jumped on the ice a spread my arms and legs. I thought I was going in for sure.

My brother laughed his ass off. He let on like he knew what he was doing. 6 hours later I respectfully told him he didn't know shit.

kirbydog You'll find open water at times during the winter but fishing from shore makes it tough. More than any other season, a boat really helps.

I understand what you mean about ice fishing-holds no interest for me either. Don't know where you are but Pueblo stays ice free on the lower end except for a real cold spell.

Winter fishing question

Ice fishing holds little attraction for me but perch hold huge attraction...that leaves me conflicted. Several times in winter the wind/sun combo keeps part of a lake ice free. I fond intend to stand on anything but what I know to be ground, no desire to become a hypothermic Popsicle. In the cold of winter can I have any success shore fishing when the water has opened up? Will the fish just be under the frozen part?
