Polar Bear

Recommended Posts

Looks like the Polar Bear will live up to it's name this year. I thought for awhile it would be Sunny and 70 degrees but now it looks like a cold front will move in and stay. We have some mornings in the teens coming up and that should get the shad running for warm water in flowing creeks.

The Polar Bear is just not the same without some really cold air and ice on the boat. Who is fishing?

More like who is donating to the winnings....

I won't be out there.  Not because of weather, just because I'm not on a pro level nor do I consistently bring in a sack full of fish to even cash a check to cover my entry fee.  Much less fuel and such.

Several local pros fish it and do well.  Last few years they have been in the top 10 but there are always the guys that win and or place well in the Everett series that win it.   While they are chasing them, I'll go for other species if I were to get out there.  I did that last year I believe.  I was already in Monte Ne when the herd come screaming around the corner headed to springs that were already vacated of bass. :lol:

Well the cold front hit and looks like a chance of freezing rain for News Year, might be trouble putting in. I know if I was fishing I would only need three boxes, my jerk baits, ned rigs and spoons. Brave souls that are going to run the lake, I am too old to take that cold, I would drop the trolling motor in PC until it got above 32 then my run would be 30 mph or less.

Good luck Jolicious, hope you find some active fish.

Problem with staying in Prairie Creek is that unless numbers are way down, there will be a bunch of others with the same idea and you'll end up playing bumper boats. There's a good winter bite setting up from PC to the dam and I expect that's where the winning sack will be caught.

I've fished the lake several times in the past few weeks and I'm impressed with how it has improved in recent years. High water in spring and summer has obviously helped with recruitment of the bass species and also with the shad spawns. Nice to see the old pond producing so well.
