Has anyone been out on Harriet or Calhoun yet? Just curious to see how think the ice is out there.

Thanks for the report!

Saw a shack out on the east side of Calhoun 2 nights ago. Looked to be out a little ways. Haven't checked the ice personally.

Let us know on the ice thickness/quality. I know we are anxious for an ice report.

Thanks guys for the reports. It sounds like I will be sticking around the North side of town this weekend for some pike. We'll see though.

If we get crazy and head into the City, I will post ice quality on Monday. Thanks again.

I was out on Calhoun last night. There is 4" of ice under the snow cover and 7" everywhere else. I'd say the lake is 50% snow covered but only an inch or two deep and hard pack. Lots of sounds of cracking and ice making!

I am thinking of heading to Harriet tomorrow night (friday), has anyone been out there lately and can provide me an ice report? I figure there is more than enough to safely fish, but I would really like some first hand opinions. Thanks.

I was out on the South West part of the lake last Thursday and there was about 7-8" of ice at that time. I had been out a week before that on 4-5" (less under the snow). I checked under some snow covered spots last week and there was plenty of ice there as well.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
