Quartz Lake report 31 Oct 2010
Went out to the lake to try out the ice. I had been watching a couple other forum members catch too many fish and needed a turn.
The lake has about 4-5 inches of clear ice where I was fishing. I saw a few other holes and tracks from recent activity. I was fishing just off the boat ramp and did not catch any thing at all. Fished 2 rods about 1 1/2 hours, only saw a few fish and it seemed as soon as they came by I spoooked them and they left, Happy-Halloween?
Maybe the sudden dip in temps had the fish not as active? Guess you cant catch them all the time...I will be back to have my revenge.
Sounds obvious but on clear ice, take a blanket or some other form of cover. The fish seem especially spooked by movement directly overhead. I think we are a few weeks out from icefishing here in southcentral. Can't wait!
At least you got a taset of some hard water fishing. I'm chomping at the bit!
