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.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
