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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
