Miltona Ice Conditions Update

6 posts in this topic

I was recently informed by a resort on Lake Miltona that there is approximately 5" or so of ice on the lake. With snow anywhere from a couple inches to a couple feet, and some slush under that. It was unclear if 5" is the minimum or if there are areas with less than that (I would guess there are some areas that have less than that.)

Has anybody been out fishing?

Can anybody elaborate on this ice report?

Killer - I was out last Friday and Saturday on the main lake coping with the brutal temps, and the ice was anywhere from 5" to 7" and making ice quickly given the temps. Snow amounts vary as you mentioned, heavier by shore and wind blown in spots out on the lake. There were slush areas, but nothing too serious that we ran into.

Didn't see another house out on the main lake, although there were a couple down in the north and south bays on the east side. Didn't venture down to the west end, although Ghotierman or others can probably fill you in on that side of the lake.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the update Anderland,

I'm planning on heading up there next week Wednesday or Thursday, so I'm thinking we should be okay bringing the wheeler out. I would think if there was 5-7 last weekend, that by next wednesday the ice should be in pretty good shape.

Well that seems to cover the ice conditions....how about the fishing?

Talked to another resort yesterday, they say that the ice conditions are not improving much at all. Ice is still around the 5 inch mark, and there is a lot of slush and water on top of the ice.

We were on Miltona Sunday. Fished out of Lucky Acres on the west side. We measured ice that was anywhere from 5" to 12". The thickness realy varies out there. Alot of slush.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.
