Carlos ice conditions?????

7 posts in this topic

I am hoping they are good by now...!?! We head out there every new years and it is always good...at least for walking. Even with last years warm December there was 5-6" in some of the bays.

Anyone?

Carlos was one of our last lakes in the area to cap over. I would use extreme caution the first couple of times out.

Thanks Wayne. That is disappointing. We are headed out again this year for new years, please keep us posted as you know more. I am hoping the next 2 weeks can add some thickness.

I agree with what Wayne said I live on carlos and it isn't very thick at all. I would wear a life jacket out the first couple times. I know I will be going out next week to check! on the 22nd I can help you more then!

Thanks Drake, please keep us posted. Where are you on the lake? We usually go out over by Blakes(south end). The last 4-5 years we have had some solid ice by new years, at least 6", never an issue. I was hoping with the cold snap the ice would be decent, (Contact Us Please) snow.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
