WCF Ice Fishing Derby

Feb Sat 02, 2019 6:41 pm

Hey, any thoughts to putting together an ice fishing day on a lake TDB? We’ve done this on the past. Bring food, beer(s) and fishing equipment. What say you? LZ

You know I'm in hahns. As usual I can get the travelling ice bandits I've been known to hang around to come as well. The more donations, the bigger the pot. :lol:

Wish the weather would stay consistent...sigh. Anyway, think this would have to be no later than sometime next two weeks or so out. I need to look at calendar and propose a date. Saturday or Sunday is fine with me.

My weekends are crazy this month, but I'd love to squeeze in a derby.

Sundays and where? Start a list?

I'm thinking Sunday the 17th. Dunno where, though. Bangs is not looking like it's going to be very productive this year with the weed cut they did... looking at Lake Link reports for two weeks of very little being caught, and no weeds to be found anywhere in the lake. The Chain somewhere? Nielson's Channels? Dunno.

One vote for Independence Grove. Right off the interstate is key for people who come a long ways. One of the best fisheries(lakes) in northern Illinois in my opinion. No entrance fee in winter. Catch and release only lake, but I'm sure you ice guys already filled your freezers for the season. Plenty of room in the marina pool, makes it easier to judge and socialize. Plenty of parking and I believe the shitters are open all winter long.

Most importantly, predator fish bite good. Bass, pike, and musky..

We can do it on Sand Lake, Sunday the 17th.

I'll notify the "Usual Suspects" ....

If that works. How about 7am to 3pm?

Mike (BassProMatuk)got a few Sunday.
2 24 inch, and a 14 inch Bass. Not bad for a few hours.

I'm a "maybe". I'm still fighting off a bug & it seems a long way to go to just sit and watch.
