ice conditions

5 posts in this topic

Coming up for the weekend. What are the ice conditions on the smaller lakes? Is there too much snow for ATVs?

Thanks

Getting to be lots of snow. I think you should bring a snowmobile if you have one. The ice really varies. I talked with a guy today about Fishook. He said he checked at spot with 18 inches, then another spot about 200 yards away, it was 6 inches. I did hear the fish were biting. Come on up, good luck.

Thanks for the report. Unfortunately, I don't have sleds, only wheelers. Walking is an option that would also help with the extra Xmas pounds. smirk.gif

Well you could try your wheeler, it's not impassible, it's right at the in betweener stage. You may make it, you may lose a few pounds getting unstuck. Either way, you win.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
