NEPA-2/9/16 Fun Day On The Ice !
« on: February 09, 2016, 05:48:01 PM »
Well I decided to try a different lake today , looking for some deeper water. I set up in 30 fow , but not much on the screen, so I worked my way shallower. Not much around 25 fow, but finally got some marks, BIG marks, in around 20 fow. The marks were bass !, and I ended up landing 5 (3 nice keepers) on my jigging rod before the bite died. Wandered around a little , and luckily found some perch(1 was 13 inch) when the sun came out and 1 giant pickerel that was a little over 25 inches ! Ice was ok about 6 to 7 inches, easy walking and pulling with about 1 inch snow cover, but the shoreline was a little weak...all in all it was a great day for me.

I tried 3 different lakes in Pike county...all 3 inches or less. Through in the towel and went home. Maybe by the weekend...I hope.

Thanks guy's for the replies. It was nice to have a day like that. I put the tape measure on that pickerel , almost 26" and it's a new PB for me.

Hi Choo Choo, thanks for sharing. You got some beauties.

It worries me a little that the banks had weak ice, and I was wondering if you could tell us how far north you were, I was thinking about hitting Promised Land SP on Saturday, but I would like to know if there is at least a chance of safe ice before I drive so far.

I don't need to know which lake or anything like that. But I cannot find any ice conditions for Promised Land anywhere on the web.

Thanks

You should have no problem at Promised Land on Sat. It's been holding up better than just about any lake in the Poconos this season.
