New thread on east end ice.

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone been taking permanent houses out on the ice from McKinnely? Is there any kind of road for truck or 4 wheeler to take a 8x10 house out from McKinnley? Is the ice beyond 6inches thick yet? Thank you for any, all information!!

I do not think that there are any roads plowed out of McKinley yet.

Still plenty of slush spots out there! mad.gif

I fished on 8" of ice by Birch Island this morning, but there is no guarantee what the ice is like inbetween.

Yes of course, no guarantees and I did my unplanned swimming this time of year 20 or so years ago without plans to repeat. Will be out friday and will post an update sometime next week. Thanks

I was out there on Tues the 11th and had 6 inches of good clear ice. There is slush in places though. Some 4 wheelers have some so so roads plowed and I saw a couple of permanent houses. The closer you get towards Pike bay the less ice you will probably have due to current. NO CARS or TRUCKS YET. Funny it seems we aren't making the ice one would expect with the cold we've had. Good luck and be careful.

      Blue Ribbon in Oakdale. Kathy's Bait off Rice and Maryland. If you go up north and drive through the cities, Vados off Central and highway 10 is the best.

      I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore.

      I would also suggest small sucker, I also had good luck with just a crappie minnow on the hook. Depends on the lake really.

      White jig heads with a white tube, if that's not working use a buzz bomb with a sucker head or tail on the treble
