cove bay ice conditions 12/6

13 posts in this topic

As of 2:00 today the ice was 10" inches thick in most of the bay.the channel was 9"inches thick to the north side of mazomonee point.out about 1/4 mile to the first small heave the ice was 7"inches thick and the ice is rough and some shelf ice so be very cautious and also watch out for the rock areas and shallow spots.If it stays cold it wont be long to be on the main lake,but we dont need any more snow.the snow is between 10'-14' inches deep,we will keep the ice updated and post when changing.]

This weekend's cold front might really help. Hopefully the snow stays away! Jay, I've got my car running and packed, let me know when you are pulling out the big houses.

Amber and Jay,

A buddy of mine just got back from fishing the Cove bay area the last 2 days and got into some real nice perch and some good "eater" eyes. Said the fish were in the weeds. He did say it was incredibly tough dragging the shack due to all the snow. I can't wait to get up there this weekend!

Any chance a guy could run a wheeler this weekend in Cove Bay or is that an impossible dream?

From what I've seen in other posts, there should be plenty of ice but the deep snow will cause you some problems. A snowmobile would probabaly be a better bet if you can get access to one.

Thanks for the reply. It would be nice to get that one last toy, but I think the wife's request for new carpet will win out on this one. Will have to look for somewhere packed down to run the ATV.

a four wheeler should be no problem and if you have chains for it that would be better,it all depends what you are hauling. :

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
