Ice and Road Update

13 posts in this topic

We now have 10 inches of ice and a well established road out to Doe Island Reef. We have also been able to pull out 3 of our 4 hole rental Shacks.

A couple of groups were out this a.m. and managed to get some nice perch in 14 feet of water off of the reef.

Paul,

I'm heading up with a buddy on sunday morning but don't have access to a wheeler or a snowmobile. I was wondering how far of a walk it is out of your landing to get to some structure, is shaws reef a long ways out, or are there other areas we could walk to and have a shot at a few eyes and perch.

Thanks

Paul,

sounds good. just got off the phone and looks like there is going to be four of us coming up. don't know if we are going to east or west end yet. If we go to the east side i will come over and talk to you to get out. What time are you normally around in the morning, or what time does your place open?

Thanks Paul,

It has been a few years since I have stayed in a sleeper.

The last time, was Joe And Marty's last winter with the resort.

Any updates on ice out to the Hennepin Island area?

I've been out there the last couple days fishing the humps north east of the island and the ice is 8-10". Around the island itself is a large flake field from the shifting ice so I wasn't going that close.

I'm looking at taking my son out and that is usually a good early spot, how have you been doing?

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
