Big Birch ice

6 posts in this topic

Anyone have an update on ice on Big Birch? Wondering if it will be good enough to hit this weekend for some early ice eyes. Thanks for any help.

I would like to head up there on Friday, so I too would appreciate a report.

I checked the lake this past Sunday and there was six inches all over the bays but I do not know what the snow did to this ice. I saw a few portables in the shallows but nothing on the main part of the lake. I think I might give it a try on Sunday.

let us know how it was. I am going out on hunters bay maybe next week depending on your report. And be careful so as the commercial goes there is a next time king....

Dont know about Big, but just talked to the bro-in-law who was on Little Birch, he tried getting on the south side somewhere, but only got out about 100 feet before the ice changed to 2" with slush. Then he went around to the North side and found 5-6". Don't know how he is doing/did though. I would imagine wind sheltered areas are generally pretty safe now, but the south side of lakes and bigger areas are still hairy. Be safe

Rumor has it that they have been fishing hunters bay. But like I said it's just rumors I have heard.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe

      Buddy was checking a few lakes yesterday and found 4.5" on a small lake on "White" ice and when he went to the "Clear" ice it was 2.5-3.5"  He's hoping around today to see what he can find but he's not expecting too much.  Few shallow protected lakes were covered so it'll only be time.

      I know a lot can change, but what are the odds with this upcoming weather that we will be making our scheduled ice fishing trip that would start on Wed (14th) using 4 mile bay to get out to the lake?
