Has anyone been out to check if there is any ice growth after the snowfall?

I'm sure there has been as it's been below 20 almost the whole time afterwards. There are people still fishing Buffalo and there was also a four wheeler out there today so you can only assume its thick enough.

I'll bet on them not to smart. I would rather check it myself just to be sure. Maybe a few more days, or people I know telling me what they had for ice.

Looks to be staying very cold from now on so we should have some good ice soon i think. As long as the snow stops

Thats good to hear that there are poeple out there yet. Thanks for the info. I have not had a chance to get over and check it since saturday. It is always a crap shoot when the snow get deep. It will be very important to check and not only go by what others say this year on bufaflo and probably many other lakes this year. There were a lot of open spots that were hit and miss just before the the snow fell so these spots that are undetectable now are going to be dangerous for a while. So even if you see people out there be sure to check the ice thickness every few feet.

Hey I've been going out to a little lake just north of Becker and since the first 6-7 inches of snow we recieved the lake has made maybe an inch of ice. I was out last night and drug the portable all the way out there and... thats a job thru all the snow. All I got was one 15 inch eye and a couple of 3-5 LBS Northerns, but its always fun.

be safe on the ice smile.gif

Best keeping the size of that lake to yourself, if you know what I mean.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
