iced over?

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone think the smaller lakes and potholes will be froze over by this weekend again?

Delta, right now its a crap shoot! hehe! We had over an inch on the slew we tried to get on, on sat morning, but was wide open on sunday morning. It is a few miles north of here, and does have a weed deck on about 1/4 of it that doesn't let the wind keep it open as well. Odds are, if the wind lets up, and it gets into the 20's or lower, it will be locked up again. But the bigger, deeper lakes in this area shouldn't freeze solid yet. But who knows?

same here!! I've been hunting a little slough in the fairfax area that was all iced up this past weekend. We hunted hanska sat with no luck and we back to are usual spot and had to bust ice. I'd like to go back out there again, I'm just wondering how much time I should give myself for busting ice! I'd like bust open a good size hole. I'll just have to talk off of work a little early on friday and check my spot out!!

If the wind drops off at night I think things will lock up fairly quick. I've seen completely frozen lakes a week ago all ready, but everything opened back up from wind and warmer temps. Unfortunately I don't think that will happen again.

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.
