11/29 8:00pm Ice Report

3 posts in this topic

I called these resorts tonight and this is what they told me:

Lybacks (South Side)- They said Isle Bay broke up last night. Doesn't look good there. In front of there place after a 1/3 of mile there was open water.

Lundeens (Southwest) - They said Cove Bay had 4"- 6" with people walking out. They also said Garrison was wide open.

Rocky Reef (Southwest)- Skim Ice. No chance of walking out.

Barnavelds (North Side)- "No Way in he*l*l I would walk out."

Fishermans Wharf (East Side)- Skim ice as far as they can see. No chance of walking out.

I also called these resorts and got no answer: Hunters Point, Macs Twin Bay, Agate Bay, Barnacle Bills, Fishers, and Red Door.

With all this snow we are suppose to get I would give it a week boys. Better safe than sorry. The fish will still be there in a week or so.

From the sounds of it Brainerd will be the place to be if you want to be on the ice this weekend. Reports say that people are already out on parts of Pelican and Gull is starting to ice over. Round is accessible to the first drop off as of yesterday. Obviously check the local shops, but hopefully the snow misses the lakes, we don't need the extra weight and insulation.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
