Ice Reports?

4 posts in this topic

A lady I work with and her husband are chomping at the bit to get the wheel house out for a weekend. With the snow the last couple of weeks lakes and travel around west central and central mn is pretty tough. I was wondering if the ice is ready for a wheel house pulled by a atv and if snow conditions would allow them to get the house on the lake or not. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.....

Hi,

It's only Tuesday and conditions will improve daily.

You dont mention where they plan on going out of so its

hard to give a real good response.

Just keep checking here as the week continues. Up to

date reports will be forth coming.

Finally, call the resort or road operator your friends

will be using, they will give them the current info.

There is not much snow on Lake of the Woods and the ice

is coming along nicely.

Sorry I did not give any specifics I was in a hurry when I left that post. They are looking for a resort or road operator to use. They are not picky. As a matter of fact I think if a resort forgot to drain the swimming pool this summer they would probably settle for that. The guy only gets one weekend a month off so they are pretty itchy. Thanks for the feedback.

Wheelers Point is a great access to LOW. The road is maintained and marked by Adrians over 4 mile bay and across Pine Island. Riverbend also maintains there roads once over Pine as well. Last year the access fee was $7, might be up a little this year with the cost of fuel, but its still a bargain if you're pulling your own house and driving your own vehicle. You will need to stop at Adrians and pay the fee and they will direct you to the access. They do one fine job for all of us fisherpeople. Good luck and hang on. Bill

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
