Edward Lake

4 posts in this topic

Heading up to the cabin on Tuesday. Has anyone fished Edwards lately? Hoping to be able to use my 4 wheeler - How much ice is on the lake? How much snow did you get? Any word on the bite? Thanks in advance

I was on Edwards Saturday, ice was about 4" where I was. I saw a perm house or two set up and some portables out quite a ways. I'd be nervous about taking a 4 wheeler out there unless the ice thickens. With all this snow on the ice insulating it, It's probably not going to build ice as fast as I'd like. If the weight of the snow brings water up on top, it's going to be a mess. I'd guess there is 8 to 10 inches of snow in the area.

Thanks Pathogen!

Looks like we'll have to walk out. We'll still have a few spots to try regardless.

there was a snowmobile on the south east side with a portable today. I've got my perm on the lake but there is areas that froze late. I wouldn't drive a wheeler on the main lake as the ice really varies out there. There is no slush at this time around the area that I'm at. But good luck and I will be out there too

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
