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.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
