Gull lake Ice

4 posts in this topic

I tried pulling my portable out onto Gull this afternoon... South end of the lake just below Squaw Point on the west side. I worked my way out about 50 yards... Found about 1 inch of frozen slush on top with about 2 incues of water below the frozen slush and then 2 to 5 inches of ice below the water... Conditions are still not very good. We need the water above the good ice to freeze. At about 50 yards out I started breaking through the top layer of prozen slush...Not a good feeling..

Also two snowmobiles crossed the lake last night just south of Squaw Point from the west side near the old Gull Lake resort... Pretty crazy if you ask me!

We just need more really cold weather...

Also someone is fishing right off Squaw point this evening and not far from shore...

Any other Gull ice reports?

Activity has been pretty limited so far on Gull. Besides you Joel I've only talked to a few others that have went out there. Sounds pretty similar to your experience. I think it is going to be a long slow process this winter. I think we need to make the best of it and be safe.

Agree Jason.... need to be safe and it is going to take some time for Gull to really freeze up.. Good news is it looks like it is going to stay cold for some time.

      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.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      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.
