8 posts in this topic

Was wondering how the ice conditions for Shaw's Reef. Planning to come up this weekend. Hope there's enough ice to walk out on.

Took the sled out over a mile today out to Shaw's Reef. Never found a spot with less than 7 inches of ice. It might be tough to get out there with a wheeler as we have 15-16 inches of snow, but it's all good with a sled. We will have the beginnings of a marked road in place by the weekend.

Dodgeman98: I found that site and when I attempt to open the cam I get error messages IE: your not connected to the Internet etc. I'm no computer guru so kind of lost at this point. Guess I'll just have to wait until I get up there and see it in real time. thanks, Bill

bill,

here is the url:

its been wonderful seeing what the current conditions are. their camera is only still shots every 15 seconds. but you can still see whats happening.

im still thinking about making the trip saturday. tomorrow im getting the boat back...finally. if i get it home in one piece, it will be ready to go for fishing next open-water season. the last two weeks surprised me...i still have to get things out of it for the winter and clean the road salt off.

im just not sure about walking far to a spot on saturday. we'll see what my fishing buddies say. that could be the incentive to head up...

shaws reef/doe island is a great spot thats not too far. rocky reef on the southwest side is close too, although ive never ice fished there.

regards,

minnesotatuff

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
