I'll be leaving around 4:30 A.M. I see you live close to me. If you want to ride with me your welcome to. I don't have room for another hut, but I can fit anything else you want to bring. Pm me if you want a ride and we'll exchange some info. To others: I've decided to park at the East boat ramp and go from there.
Was a fairly slow day. I caught 5 and a buddy of mine caught 6 all day. Fished my old reliable in the A.M. and only got a couple. Water was up to 54' from 27' last year. Went over to the point we fished last weekend and the fish were not in 21' like like before. Drilled out to the ridge line and started to catch at 47'. Probably drilled 100 holes, but could not find a good hole. Ice is 10 to 12" thick , with numerous pressure ridges. Traffic in the P.M. sucked! Didn't try for any Pike. Had a big crew with me yesterday. Will post Pics later. Got to work today. Later,
Did you park on the west, and "drive" accross? did you try in closer to the cliff, in shallower water? sorry to keep nagging you, but it's close to the time where i'll be spending many of days out there, need the jump start! Have you ever fished to the North by the damn? I bet if you parked on the West, the walk wouldn't be to bad. I'll stick with what works 1st, then venture if need be.
I drilled holes all the way to shore @ the point. Stays 50' + till you get 100' from shore and then starts to rise rapidly. Tried @ the break and nothing that morning. To the north at the big point at the turn towards the dam can be good.
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...
