Ice lately

3 posts in this topic

So what's the scoop I'm really sceptical coming up there tomorrow. Last week Gull was open Pelican too(much of it anyway) and it's snowed alot since sat. So my Q is the lakes that had ice on them did they make more ice? or did the snow sink the ice and noe it's a mess? I saw -18 wed night in Brainerd. Has the iced improved? I really would appreciate any resopnse.

On the bay in pelican there is 5" of ice with 18" snow on top. Drilled holes and water floods up. Stood in 3" of water. Didnt check main lake but it definitely is not the same as the bay. Tough moving around in 18" of snow. No one is venturing on the main lake. Might want to check some smaller lakes. There was a bunch of people on the first break on round lake next to 371

was on Round yesterday, I drove my sled out past the 1st break, and found 6-7.5 inches of ice, but water comes up when you drill.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
