Fully open lakes

8 posts in this topic

Are there any lakes that are still open completely around here? Just wondering because with the snow coming in those will be the lakes with the best ice this year since they will get a chance to freeze properly.

Pulaski is always one of the last to freeze, but it is known for shakey ice due to freshwater springs. Independence only had about 30 yards of ice on it out from shore this AM.

Twin/Sylvia is always a late freezer as well.

Lets just hope this snow we get gets mostly blown off the lake so we have a decent chance at some good ice.

How about clearwater? I would think that is still open?

The East side of Clearwater was iced over when I drove past yesterday. I found open water on all the lakes I checked in the area yesterday.

The main part of Sylvia is still wide open... Cedar the same. I think most of the bigger lakes will be fine.

      Just got back from 2 days out of Walleye Retreat. Fishing wasn't on fire, but we ended up with a limit for 5 guys and a nice fish fry. Walleyes were 2:1 over saugers and most were in the 14-15" range. The keeper saugers were 14"-17". We fished in 29 FOW and had steady action throughout the day, with most of it being 10:00-3:00. Biggest walleyes 19 and 23 were 8' off the bottom. As others have posted, we had LOTS of lookers, who would not commit. Hottest bait was a plain red hook for deadstick and a small, gold "Slender Spoon". That caught 70% of the fish. I know others out of the resort struggled, so luck continues to be the variable.

      It really slowed down since this warm-up began last week. The fish seem more scattered now. I think they're on the move to deeper haunts. I bet it'll pick up shortly since this is a stable warm front.

      Nice work Frank. I look forward to the day that I can say that I am fishing a lake that I fished 30 years ago.
