I was there 12/31 it was slow we fished off Howbert point . It was really warm and the top started to melt a little. THere was some open water on the south side of the island. we were into about 12 inches of ice. I caught one rainbow about 3 pounds . Had a tip up set up fpr Pike but no luck.
I have fished the area west of Sucker Cove and have had good luck, below the steep bank, in about 17'-20'. Stoll Mountain has been good.
If you try Sucker cove try going to the west, there is a very small rock point, that could be fished from shore, other than that there is very limited access along the bank(steep), I would give it a try about 25-40 yards out, from the rock point.
Let us know how you did ice fisher. I wanted to fish there this morning, but ended up hitting stoll instead. Only caught one fish, action was very slow. I will probably try the bluffs next time.
I'm going to whip up some flies for ice fishing. I want to start by sort of mimicking the current lures/jigs on the market that people tend to have success with here in Colorado. I have a few ideas in mind, but want to hear from you guys. (Calling Dr Cro, P.S. I enjoy your videos)...
I will be in Leadville in a couple weeks and I have never iced Twins or Turquoise.
Which lake would you suggest for someone with out access to a snowmobile? I have all other equipment needed, just wondering what will I be faced with? I'm not targeting the monsters. I just want to learn about...
