getting excited!!!

4 posts in this topic

I recently moved to the grand forks area and and looking to ice fish low. I've been looking at maps and see that there is a few areas with structure on the west side of the lake. Just woundering how the fishing is on this side of the lake? How thick is the ice and avg. cause i've never ice fished it before. But i've been getting the ice itch.

West side, like Warroad, or west side like the Angle, Big Narrows?

Welcome to the real "up north". If you spend some time

looking at the ice fishing posts on this forum you will

find answers to all your questions and more.

LOW is much more than the Rainy River.

I will call up a very good post called "things to do on the

big pond". Watch for it on the main listings...good reading

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
