SNOW!!

17 posts in this topic

They're forecasting a foot or so for up here tomorrow.

Looks like a great time to break the sled out and do some early season riding. We have miles of trails right around the resort. Grab you sled and come on up. It would be a great time to check out the resort and see what we have to offer.

You are correct the snow will be great for sledding but what do you think it will do to the ice. The winds are going to be east and southeast this weekend. Is the lake frozen over yet? With the winds from the east is there a chance that those icebergs in front of our place would blow out or are we going to have to deal with those heaves all winter again?

Paul, How's next weekend for you?

I'll bring up the Chevy for you, and hopefully the snow will be around or the ice will be ready smile.gif

Kevin,

That will work out great.

Glassguy,

The ice seems to be firmly entrenched. Guess we will just have to deal with the bergs and knock them down with the big plow smile.gif

We have 8-9 inches of snow up here on the east side.

I went out about 1/2 mile on the sled today and found 5 inches of ice.

Good to hear! 5 inches of ice 1/2 mile out, I'll be up this weekend! Will be walking out though, I need the exercise anyways. The holidays are starting to gain on me, hopefully they are starting to gain on the walleyes and perch too. grin.gif

I was up last weekend and saw a portable out in the middle of Sunset Bay on Sat. He was a walker. As windy as it was the snow seemed to stick and not drift as much as I had expected. If you are going out with a sled or wheeler this weekend, especially on the east side of the lake, be very careful. There are some ice heaves and ice chucks that will be hard to see with the new snow.

After today's snow, how much are we looking at out on the lake? 12"+??? I would have to assume things are a bit slushy...

Any info would be greatly appreciated, as I would like to bring the wife up this weekend and do some fishing on the SW part of the lake...prepping her for the conditions before we get there might make things more enjoyable for everyone grin.gif

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
