COVE BAY ICE REPORT 12/27-7:00 PM

6 posts in this topic

well here we go, not much ice has been made in the last week except on our roads. The bay road has about 14-17 inches depending which end of the bay. The ice thickness off the road in the bay is between 11-14 inches depending on snow cover and there are still many spots with slush! Our road to the main lake has between 12-14 inches and the ice thickness off the road is between 9-10 inches with some spots less under slush! We need COLD WEATHER to make ice and freeze up the hidden spots of slush. We hope to get to our other structures soon, but we need more ice for vehicle travel to these spots. We recommend light houses and atv or snomobiles for main lake travel off the roads. There is still a lot of snow cover on the bay and main lake causing a nice insulation barrier and preventing the slush and water from freezing. And please 10 mph speed with vehicles on roads (THANKS)remember to block your houses up high when leaving to prevent any slush from freezeing down your house (WE KNOW MOST PEOPLE KNOW BUT FOR THOSE WHO DON'T) GOOD LUCK,BE PATIENT ICE WILL COME AND MOST OF ALL BE SAFE,CHECK ICE CONDITIONS AND LET'S GET SOME FISH!!!

Yes we are letting trucks pull smaller wheel houses out however suggest using atvs for the larger ones. We will plow spots off the road for wheel houses.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
