I fished on Thumb lake yesterday with a buddy and wanted to give a report. The east end is wide open and west end has maybe 2 inches of ice with lots of slush on top . More people took 2 steps and turned around than stayed to fish . I don’t blame them as I would not have been out there without my life jacket , rope , and buddy to drag my ass out if I fell through . The bite was SLOW.
There's an inlet coming in there if your using the Gruler road access, but off of private property on Indian Garden rd that bay back there is probably fishable
Any ice updates on lake cvx or thumb? Coming up this weekend with a buddy. Curious what to expect.
I was told it’s a cuttthroat. Did a hike-in trip to boulder lake in Montana almost 10 years ago. Whole lake is filled with them, could’ve caught 8” ones with a bare hook all day. This one came out of the depths of about 30’ to hit a fly. Gin clear water so watching it was kinda neat. I don’t take many pics so it’s still one of the coolest fish pics I got. LOLOff topic:
I'm curious about your new avatar pic. What's going on there? Looks like a brook trout but there appears to be dark spots above the lateral half rather than vermiculation. Is that just a trick of the low resolution?
I did see someone on the south arm of Charlevoix last week but the ice looked terrible. The north arm is wide open, no ice. Thumb is good to go, so is Deer Lk.Any ice updates on lake cvx or thumb? Coming up this weekend with a buddy. Curious what to expect.
