Ice conditions around Lake park

11 posts in this topic

Has anyone been out or heard of how much ice there is around Lake Park? I am looking to head to Big C or Leif Lake on Sunday just to get out of the house. But I have a feeling all of this snow is going to really mess up our ice.

I am guessing that Lief would be better than Big C. Sounded like Big C was still open a few days ago.

Rosco P Coaltrain --

You had better plan on Lief. Big C is way behind. I am there are spots you can try, but what about the spots you can't see? No Lief would be better.

No fishing on Boyer yet either. We will see if somebody goes out there this weekend. Nothing going on Silver either.

Not the best Lake Park report. I am sure Labelle would be fine.

BTW -- a Buddy told me that he was out with his wheeler on Saturday on Lief and he found a lot of variable depths. So be careful!!!

Out on Boyer on Wed. Ice was a good 5-8 depending on the area...snow made it difficult for travel though, went anywhere from ankle high to just above my knees. Slow day of fishing but the ice is good for it!

I grew up in Lake Park, just curious on LaBelle? Is this lake still hitting for walleyes?

Labelle is very hit and miss. Nice pan fish but they tend to bite late in the evening and after dark.

The eyes are very slow. But when you get one it is nice..

Went out on Boyer on Sunday and it was BRUTAL all around. Incredibly cold and poor fishing (4 small perch between the two of us). Ice depth was about 7 inches 100 feet from shore, with some thinner areas here and there. Be Careful. Slush on top of the ice made for a sodden and hard-going hike.

Good luck to the fellas that tried to pull a 8x10 permanent house across the lake with snowmobiles.

Thanks to Dahitman for the Labelle info. Keep on!

Todd --

I will try and talk to some people about Labelle -- the buddy that usually fishes there is not there yet, but I will keep my ears open.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
