A Lil dinner.
« on: January 20, 2017, 08:09:00 PM »
Checked sterling out. Shore was deteriorating. Water on top. Looked milky. Didn't see a sole from ledgedale all the way to sterling. Canned that idea and said screw it and paid a visit to white oak. One person was on the ice. I walked out threw the bull and set  up a lil past him. Couldn't find a hole over 6 ft. Didn't really need the vex.threw the jig down and sight fished when the jig vanished I set the hook lol.me and him threw the breeze and jigged.I was banging them and kept some of the bigger ones. He got a 10 or 11 inch callie on the bait I gave him and said man works good.I seen a truck pull up and seen the binoculars come out I knew it was the warden.my license was in my bag and I knew he was coming to check me out I walked over to my bag and popped my lic on. He remembered my pile from last yr and we threw the breeze a while.getting fixed in 2021. The older guy that was fishing and throwing the breeze with me said hopefully I'm still walking by then lol. Warden said prompton had 5 guys on it and over 8" of ice.me him and the warden threw the breeze a Lil bit. He left and we fished until the rain started.shore was good and over 7 " of ice. He left with 18 and I left with a nice lil pile.

It was just starting to lightly rain. More like a mist.ice was solid. Some lil areas looked weathered. But decently solid. A Lil puddle here and there.prob could put my van on lol. I was happy.I needed that.nice day no jacket or crazy wind.and the fish cooperated.I love sight fishing them.when you don't see a jig let em have it. A couple misses at around 3 ft. I pulled and the jig popped out the hole and over my shoulder lol.I got my fix down rt 6.not big perch but had a good day throwing the bull and enjoying the day. The fish were just a bonus.I believe his name was mike.old school no flasher,straight hook,and a Lil pc of shot sitting on a bucket.

Shame 2021 to fix. Only good thing. I think that lake if restocked will return to a decent fishing spot its got what it takes to rebound. We talked about when they lifted the regs to prevent die off from lack of food vs volume when it was lowered.usually I don't give many fish wardens any credit. Some just are in it for a job and seem they didn't take the job because they enjoy the sport and want to protect our resources.the warden on Fri seemed very knowledgeable and enjoyed seeing us fish and exited to talk about fishing.there the wardens you want.and why not enjoy some fillets where you don't have to worry about hurting the population. And them fillets r nice and clean.

Glad you got out and had a good time. The last time a guppy cop came ut to check me out we stood around and jack jawed for so long that he forgot to check me tags. I actually reminded him, lol! Some of those guys are great guys. I wonder what the ice on oaks and Prompton look like after that weekend. It was like summer out there sat and sun.  oI
When Hell freezes over, I'll ice fish there too!

yeah, I heard they were being fished but then again, I've seen guys walk out onto 3" of rotten ice like they were walking on a city side walk! I'm hoping this Friday brings lots of cold and tightens things up a bit for the weekend.
