Grand Mesa Ice

I just saw a report from a reliable source that Island Lake is frozen and fishable. Break out the ice cleats. No snow on the ice.

Had knee surgery 14 days ago, not sure if I'm ready for ice fishing. Wish the boy was bigger I might have him drag me in a sled.

Well looks like up to 6'' of snow tonight. May want to ditch work if you have been putting off driving to your favorite Mesa lake and fishing it.

Hit a couple of lakes on the eastern end and had very little success. About 10 inches of ice and little snow cover but the fish were not cooperating.

Dang it, I've been hobbling around for weeks thinking about the hard water on the mesa. Want to drive to Cottonwood #5 really bad and try some of the HD ice lures there for some of those big browns.

Well don't bother as that is where I sent most of yesterday. Had two ticks on a downsized 2" Mr. Crappie shad body. Not even a looker at the HD. Only charted 5 fish.

Well dang that makes me feel a little better. Did you fish near the dam? Was that the smallest bait you used?

I drilled around the dam but could only find 8 fow, so I moved toward the middle on the south side and found fish in 13 and 16 fow. I cut the 2" shad down to about 1 inch and put it on a pink 1/32 oz head. Had a bump of the pink/black and on the white/chart. There was another guy that showed up that I knew from some of my ice fishing seminars and he was using small perch jigs under a bobber and only had one strike. I don't think there are many fish in the lake.
