Cove Bay Ice report and conditions 12/12

20 posts in this topic

as of 3:00 today the ice in the bay was 11"inches in most spots.as you approach the channel the ice was 10"inches and 9"inches at mazomonee point to our first structure.there is alot of slush under the snow which makes plowing and travel tough.we did plow small roads in the bay and marked out to the channel,but will not plow past the channel untill more ice is formed.if you are using a four wheeler you will need chains to get off the road or go out farther.if ice conditions change by friday we will post them as fast as we can.thanks and lets hope for more cold and no snow,good luck and safe fishing.(Jay)

Ryan we do have an email address & toll free phone number but until our sponsorship is setup we cannot post phone numbers or email addresses (hopefully we will be setup by the beginning of next week). But if you are in the area stop by and I'd be more than happy to answer your questions.

Jay,

wondering how far and to what locations/structure you typically have your roads going out to?

Wilderness covers cove bay, then out off of mazzominee point. There is a ton of structure there. Then they head out to kings hump and cover all of the other structure around there. Then they get out to spirit island and the structure around it. All of these areas produce fish year around and do not get very much fishing pressure. Last year I never once had my house moved and caught limits of eyes till the last weekend of walleye!

All I can say is Jay loves his 6.0l Fords. Look for them on the ice roads in cove, you can not miss them. Black and Green. grin.gif

This is great to hear. cool.gif

I would like to be the first to say welcome. I think it will be a big plus for you guys. It is great to be able to talk about Wilderness Warmth now, with out violating forum police in some way or another.

I know Jay and Amber personally and can say they are very patient and well tempered people.

I have not seen you guys in awhile now and it will be nice to see you soon. In one of the ways I know of them, they where one of the best people/customers I had the privilege of working with. I loved helping them and they where valued customers. This is why I had my shack brought to their resort. I tell ya, Jay has some stories to share.

jay,

i havent been up to mille lacs ice fishing this year yet...

from years past, i know there has been a road going out just west of cove public access. i think it might be 100th ave? is that the road you are talking about?

im just waiting for either driveable ice or to hook up with a friend with 4-wheeler/snowmobile.

regards,

I would say "yes". It runs out the old public access in cove, but I will let Jay have the final word on this.

My Husband and I have been with Amber's family for almost 20 years. Her Dad and Uncle built our fish house. If anyone is looking for a place to store thier fish house,I would highly suggest Wilderness Warmth. Amber and Jay are terrific people.They work very hard each winter to keep us safe out there. Thier roads are ALWAYS in beautiful condition. Best of all,Jay absolutely is the best at putting you where the fish are. We catch eyes year after year. Thanks Amber and Jay smile.gif

I agree, Jay has great roads. Two years ago he really had to work hard to make us safe with some bad ice heaves on the road, he and his crew did a great job. He also puts me on fish, but that doesn't mean I catch them...although I'd rather be on the ice than at work.
