Pike bay ice? Early Perch?

4 posts in this topic

has anyone been out on Pike bay yet? I want to come up for some early perch action but am not sure about the ice.

Has anyone ever hit the perch this early, how is the action?

Yooper, I live a few miles away from the south end. As far as I could tell, it was locked up mid-week last week. I heard a report in the bait shop that a couple of guys were heading out to try the first breakline. I could not think of a reason why the perch shouldnt be hitting, as they are pretty thick.

I was out on a couple smaller lakes Sat-Sun and I had everything from 4-9 inches. Mostly good, clear, solid ice. I just hope all this snow doesnt hurt the bigger lakes, as I am chomping to get the house out on Pike Bay as well.

Maybe Beef or Brian can give us a few more details?

I just heard through some students here at school that parts of the south side of PB had some open water still...

Be careful especially with all this new snow...

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
