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.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
