When will the ice get here!!!

6 posts in this topic

I'll go out on a limb and say we'll have fishable ice by the second weekend in december and no later than xmas. Figured i might as well be the first to start this annual post. I dont know about anybody else but im getting antsy just thinkin about it. Anybody have any guesses as to when we'll have good ice?

I have my own predictions of the first week of Dec or even the last week of Nov. Of course this depends on the weather which is unpredictable.

Last night on the water it was 37.5. As carverfisherman says, the fish are still biting. Beautiful night out last night.

Saw quite a few sloughs iced over this morning on my way to ND and Pigeon Lake was almost completely covered. Maybe the weather will throw us a bone this year.

I'm going to say I'll be fishing a bay somewhere by Dec 1 - hopefully by 11-24 - but that is getting to be a long shot, being it is less than 2 weeks away

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
