Dead Lake Report

3 posts in this topic

I spent Monday thru Wednesday on the far east bay of Dead Lake. There was easily a foot of light fluffy snow. Lots of slush near shore with about 5 inches of questionable ice, but a good 7 inches of solid ice in the middle. The flooding was pretty bad after we drilled the holes, but we sopped up the water with some snow and made it work okay. There has been some ATV travel beyond the little bay, but we didn't go out to the main lake, so no information on ice condidtions off the Public Landing in the central basin. The fishing pretty much sucked, a few little pike.

Did you by chance get a good look at west lost or Drive Star?

No, I came up through Perham and only drove past Marion. The east shore of Marion looked pretty good, but I could only see one house out on the south point.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
