1st Ice Event on Fish Lake Sat Dec. 8th

Recommended Posts

Northlander

Well guys we are shooting for Sat Dec 8th out of High Banks Resort. I have Cabins 3 and 4 reserved for Friday/Sat.

I will need a idea of how many guys want to stay those nights so if I need to cancel 1 cabin I can do so in time.

As usual support Tim at High Banks for all he does for this event.

Im hoping ice is good enough for wheelers/sleds. It was at this time last year, we went all over the lake but by the bridge and D a m of course.

So lets hear who all will be there.

I will be fishing all day Friday if anyone wants to join me.

Last time I came down I got such a wild ride over the ice that I had two rods broken for me and the terminals on my Vex battery turned completely into pretzels. Thank God I had my camera gear in a fully padded bag or I'd be talking $10,000 in ruined gear. Not really eager to have that happen again. Can't afford to spend that kind of money on top of $3.09/gallon gas. blush.gif

If I come down this time, I'll be on my own and happy to be that way. grin.gif

If its safe for wheelers I will be there. Last year I was on foot and had to rely on a ride from Northalnder. Thanks for the lift Steve but I hate imposing on others. It will be a one day only event for me, but I had a good time and caught a few fish last year.

Reminds me, gotta start planning for another Minnesueing outing.

So that was your ice rods that poked holes in my new Otter?grin.gif

Not to mention all your busted cans of Diet Coke everywhere. shocked.gif

Even with all that I seem to remember I guided you on a 26" eye. wink.gif It was worth it.

Of coarse I'll be there.

Hey Gang,

I'm happy to say that Hunting season is over and I'm looking forward to getting out on the ice. I have the whole weekend off including Friday. So count me in for any and all fishing that will be taking place. I have a couple four wheelers that I or someone else can bring up for us to use. I will be staying at home also.

I'll be there with wheeler again. Hopefully, this time, there is no towing of broken down snowmobiles on the ice!

I'm waiting. Hope Gander has some good "day after thanksgiving" sales! I'm looking forward to their Ad coming in!

"will frank be doing the rat dance agian."

LOL, I had almost forgot about that one grin.gif He's (the rat) probably still having bad dreams about that little incident !!

I will be there with Junior, sled and Otter in tow. Will try to see if I can get friday off too, tho Jr has school in the afternoon. Will be staying at home.

Looks like some cool nights/days coming that will hopefully give us some good ice by then.

I had a nightmare about it too. It lunged at me and chased me and I couldn't get away. shocked.gif

Casey,

I have only heard of the stories on this matter. I'm not the person with any photos. I didn't even get a first hand look at Frank's Moon Walk (Dance) that took place the year before. It just seems to get better each year!!!

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!
    • slammer
      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

        Nice fish , great pics ,, what times of the day were best for you ?
