thawin' out

Postby mark hay » February 1st, 2009, 2:36 am

thank the Lord for the warmer air . the ice is dropping from everything this morning . hopefully the birds will fill up . the seedy weeds will most likely be the first target since there is still several inches of snow and ice on the ground , making mast and field crops nearly impossible to get to for the turkeys.

That's good to hear. We are expecting a big snow storm next week. I can't wait for spring.

It's warming up a bit here today too but there is so much ice and snow, it will take a long time to see it go away. We had 4"-5" or ice pellets, then freezing rain and lastly, 9" of snow on top of all that. It's been so cold not much has left.

Thanks,

Got mid 30's yesterday and today I thought about going pike fishing at the dam figuring they'd be biting but I didn't make it out. Maybe tomorrow if its warm again.

Pike and Walleye never close in the river I fish here. Pike are every bit as tasty as any other fish in Wisconsin. They are a colder water fish than than walleyes and are very active in the winter especially in the rivers when they first start warming. To catch walleyes right now you need to fish extremely slow not my type of fishing.

The temp reached 38 in Michigan on Sunday, first time above freezing in over a month.
 
For those that don't mind winter, I caught my limit of bluegills through the ice three times last week.

i love pike i think they get a bad rep as table fare because of the Y bones but if you know how to clean them they are great eating ....walley is as good and easier to clean .....they dont fight as good to me they feel like a snag...with alot of head thumping.....as soon as the weather gets better ill go steel head fishing...talk about a fight....they s*#k for eating .....but i can trade em for chinesse food ...they love em and i like general tao chicken and sweet and sour shrimp.....dont foreget the flyied lice....[:D]
