Ice Reports?

Recommended Posts

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

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
