Ice Fishing Panguitch Lake

Nice Cutty Rainbrown.

We have had it on the Calendar for months, Ice Fishing Dec 16th and 17th 2016! Only to show up with it raining and blowing about 40 mph on Friday ha! Crazy ice sheets being blown together and ice chunks being beat apart by the wind. When we showed up on Friday only about half the lake had ice on it and it was deteriorating fast.

We ended up messing around in the little cove on the north side of the lake. The wind was not blowing as hard and their was around 4 inches of ice still. After that we headed back to the cabin and called it night.

Luckily a cold front moved in over night and it was about 1 degree in the morning with just a little breeze. There was still a ton of open water but enough ice on the north east side that we could fish. There was probably around 5 inches. Fishing was really slow but we ended up catch a few nice fish and had a great time.
