Ice on the pine lakes?

6 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone knows if big pine has froze over yet by the toad river on the north side. A friend of mine told me that it was as of tuesday, but he likes to strech the truth. Wanted to get out this weekend.

yes, people will likely be putting houses out this weekend if they haven't put them out already

Was out on big pine last weekend, the north side had about five inches. After the snow on saturday we had the same problems everyone else is having with the flooding in the house. Fishing was ok, couple walleyes and crappies. I will give it a shot again this weekend.

Was out on the north side just after Christmas. Still a bit slushy by shore. Out a bit there seemed to be 2 inches of bad ice on top of 10 inches of good ice. The amount of good ice seemed to vary depending on how much snow was on top. ATVs and snowmobiles were out. A few pickups were parked on the ice near the shore.

Fishing was slow for me.

      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.
