Ice Conditions 12/15

3 posts in this topic

Was on dead shot tonight. Full size pickups out infront of Pavilion. Went out on the ice figuring there was a full size pickup out there. Drilled my holes got in pickup and drove it to shore. I have 12 inches of ice...sure it was thick and there was a road plowed but felt leary. fishing was better before dark then after.

Went out on a small lake today. Was on the lake 2 weeks ago and there was 6-8 inches of ice before that snow storm. well the ice is the same thickness in the NW corner of the lake. Foot of snow and slush on top. Drilled around and on the SW corner of the lake there was no slush but almost a foot of ice on the lake. Put up with the snow and slush and ended up getting some sunnies but wow is there a lot of water on top of the ice but hit and miss but where the water is it's thinner ice. Just becareful. Saw full size pickups out on Meadow...don't know if Id wana go out there quiet yet.

I was out yesterday and found out that you don't have to bring a skimmer. All the ice shavings come out on their own when you drill your hole. By the end of the day I was standing in at least 2 inches of water. The ice was only around 7 inches but it was good clear ice. It is fun to watch the fish coming up under the ice when it is clear like that.
