    Re: Red frozen- try Blue

    the ice was thin, and a rock did go thru it. most of it was melted by the time i was on my way home. But it aint gettin no warmer up there.
    My buddy said he talked to someone who said they threw rocks to make a hole, and caught fish in that hole. Sounds kinda rough on the line tho. I would hate to have a big cutthroat on and lose it to the ice edge against my line. I CANT WAIT TO TRY ICE FISHING. 8-)

    Red Frozen? Hope not I'm going in the morning. If I throw a rock out and it bounces I'll try Caples or ICR.

    Blue Lake was nice though. I actually went to upper blue, drove my car thru the boat launch onto a sandy beach and launched at the waters edge. I had the entire lake to myself and caught lotsa fish. Lakes are very low, and will welcome a good snow this year.

    If you see the temps, yes the freeze is coming. I posted the pics of the ocean size waves on Caples and believe you me they and the wind and cold was ferocious.

    Red frozen- try Blue

    Thats the text I shot to my buddy at 3am sat morning. Then after seeing whitecaps at caples, I drove back up into Blue Lakes area and slept tiill sun up. My buddy never got the message, and too bad for them. I caught 18 12-14" rainbows, trolling a countdown rapala off the pontoon. Left Blue at 11, and hit red which was thawing out. I didnt know it but my buddies did go there and I just missed them at 1140. So I went back to Caples where everybody was having luck by the spillway with 14" rainbows. Launched the pontoon and headed across the lake, in search of browns. Hooked into a bunch of those bows, but no browns. then the battery died and I had to row across the lake so I left. Great weekend for everybody, but the FREEZE IS COMING.
