Iced some 'eyes.

Hi all,

My buddy and I headed out to break trail to our nearby favourite walleye lake, after an hour of breaking trail and checking ice conditions we got to one of our spots and spent another hour staring down the holes. Once the sun hit the treeline we had a short 20 minute flurry of action, iced 6 walleye but 4 were tiny and went back, I came home with my catch, one just under 18" and one just under 22". Fun afternoon.

Awesome, Im looking at open water in the Kawarthas after the rain yesterday. 9" of ice will be a long way off for us/. 

I was very surprised there was 9” on this lake, it behaves more like a deep trout lake and freezes in two stages most years. Normally the shallow bay at the landing where the trail comes out goes the same time as my home lake, but that first bay opens up to the main basin area that gets to 67’FOW, many times you get 7”-8” in the first bay then 200 yards out it’s suddenly 2” cuz it froze later, this year it was 9” everywhere. Since the initial dump of snow we had here that screwed the trails with downed trees we’ve had maybe 2”-3” of snow since the ice formed, so the lakes are makin real good ice this year. BTW, you said you were looking for a sled this year, I recommend 4 strokes.

Thx for sharing Simon and enjoy your fish fry. Some of my best eye memories are from the sometimes unbelievable dusk bites back in the day on Scugog. Double digit numbers of eyes per person happened often enough during those 30-45 minute  feeding frenzies.

 

That evening bite is why I switch to trout once it opens, the walleye seem to feed exclusively early morning and at dusk, very short window on the ice, fun , but I like to catch all day…. Lol…crappie are good for all day too here.
