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

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
