Mosquito Reports???

Discussion in 'Hard Water Discussions' started by Steelhauler, Dec 23, 2008.

  1. Guys,

    I'm thinking about hitting Mosquito in the morning. Anybody do any good as far as fishing goes today? I've been reading the ice reports and it looks like I'll be trying the North end of the lake. Stop by and say hi if you are out tomorrow. I'm hard to miss in my Chartruese and black survival suit.

    Just got back from fishing w/ fishmaster and one of his friends. 5" on the north end before we left. Be extremely careful tomorrow. That rain is bound to melt off quite a bit of thickness. It was around 25 degrees when I got there at 5 p.m. and it's 32 at my house right now.

    Fishmaster caught the only fish, 12" walleye. I had very few lookers to even have a shot at.
     

  3. Tomb,

    Thanks for the report and the warning. I'll probably go out and poke around just to see what it feels like to be back on the ice.

    just got back from skeeter didnt fish tho it is 4:25 right now i drilled one hole on the south side of the causeway still has about 5 to 6" in some spot. seen some open water. the north side looks to scary to even test.. i hope tommorow dont kill it even more with this rain and the 60 degree weather...didnt go out very far about 50' out the ice was gettin black so i just stayed by shore...so if anyone is plannin to take a trip out there from afar its not worth it right now.. -Fish Master-

    Thanks for the update fish master. Hopefully we will all be "hanging some stockings with care" (as I heard Jig say a couple years ago) any day now.
