Black Lake by Minnetonka

1 post in this topic

There are many thin ice spots on this lake as of this afternoon. A buddy and I drove by to see if anyone was out there fishing. There were 2 shacks out closer to the channel and tracks out in a lot of different places from shore, so we decided to give it a try. We drilled a couple of holes in about 5ft and there was about 4-5" in most of the spots we drilled. Then came the scary part, I drilled a hole and there was only 2in of ice, maybe less shocked.gif. I almost dropped the auger and packed up everything and left, but we decided to stay in a spot around 7ft and where there was a little more ice. I just wanted to warn people about the thinner ice out there and be careful. By the way, we marked a couple of fish, but didn't catch them.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
