little long lake

6 posts in this topic

Anyone have any ice reports for little long lake or shagawa?

Going up to my buddies cabin this weekend for the first time this winter and was just curious on how thick the ice is around there.

Stay in the cabin and drink beer.

This last 12-14 inches of snow just gave us the coup de grace for any good ice this season! mad.gif

If you must go out, bring knee high boots or chest waders.

Ice on most of the area lakes was 4 to 9 inches when the last big snow hit, so it should be safe (well, we now no ice is really safe) on foot. You should be fine walking. Even if there's no slush where you are, drilling holes will create it because of all that weight pushing down on the ice, so GO's advice about the knee-high boots is right on.

The only time you need hip waders for ice fishing is right here on this board when GO starts exaggerating. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

stfcatfish gave you a good tip about the water coming up after a hole is drilled, even if there was none earlier.

It will make a big time mess.

When Steve drills a hole, the water REALLY comes through the hole.

Looks like an oil well in Texas!! cool.gif

This being due to the fact he doesn't tip the scales at a mere 160 pounds, like myself!! grin.gifgrin.gif

      I haven't but I'very heard that there have different versions of the clam adapter and Milwaukee has made some changes as well in their design to deal with higher torque ratings.  Give Clam a call with you drill mod4l number and I'm sure they'll be able to help you out with which is the correct for your drill.

      2/26/17   With ice conditions deteriorating, we hit the Crow River for the second weekend in a row. Casting 1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jigs tipped with 3" Berkley Power Grubs in orange and chartreuse combinations, we caught walleyes up to 18" and pike up to 31" as well as a couple carp. Remember, pike and walleyes, as well as bass, are closed in MN now except on most navigable rivers. Also, your fishing license expires tomorrow. I will be giving a seminar at the Home and Sport Show at the McLeod County Fairgrounds on Saturday, 3/4 at 11 am. Will be presenting about walleye fishing on area lakes, but happy to answer questions and talk about anything fishing. Stop in and say hi. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thats what I'm thinking its what 25-30 years old and stating to not run as good as it used to so putting money into probably won't be worth it vs just buying a whole new auger.
