Are ya ready? (pics included)

21 posts in this topic

Myself and the Waskish Minnow Station team are pumped for ice season! Some pics from last year to get revvevvevved up for making holes in the ice. Early season pike trips are just a few cold nights away and then onto crappie chasing/walleye hunting and the big bang at the end in March with crappies every where and dandy perch. I can't stand it, it needs to freeze!

Am I ready? Yup. Finished off charging the deep cycles (amazing how much bright the lights are on a full battery). All the goodies are inside except malt beverages and ready to microwave Mexican food.

I had planned earlier to pull the house back over on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, but given the price of gas I'll just wait until first ice.

I agree, follow Hanson!! Then my house wont have shacks set-up 10-Feet from the front door. Kelly, I think you guys should start painting layers on your houses everyother day...just like in the old movies when the bank robbers would peel of the paint from the getaway car. grin.gif

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.

      hurry up ice!
