Ice Update after X-mas

12 posts in this topic

Just wondering what the thicknesses are out there. Was to the Outlaws over X-mas but I did get a Fleet Farm gift card I think I can find some Ice fishing stuff there.

Drove around Green yesterday and there were trucks scattered about the lake. Wasn't able to fish though so I can't comment on the ice thickness.

Was out on green yesterday (three miles out from Spicer). Lots of people driving. We took snowmobiles out. Ice was thicker than my ice dipper was long but it did not look like good clear ice. It looked like a good quater to half of it was milky white.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
