PB ICE and CASS

3 posts in this topic

HOLY COW!!!!

I tried Pike Bay yesterday and got stuck over a dozen times on both a sled and four wheeler.. A buddy of mine was on the sled and I was on my wheeler and the SLUSH IS DEEP!!! It dosen't help when your on 3-8 inches of snow and then fins 4-8 inches of water.. YUCK!!! So after we got off the ice with not even getting a line wet, we headed to Cass.. The slush over there is getting worse too... We managed to find some nice eyes and jumbo eel pout and to mix in that a dozen or so keeper perch...

I talked to Froggy before heading out and he mentioned there are still some Open or soft spots on Cass and that the ice thickness varies anywhere from 5-14 inches.. On Cass we found an average of 12 inches...

Beef, I know what you mean. Had the same type of experience out there last weekend. Looked behind the sled and there were some nice "waves" behind me that almost scared me half to death. I am pretty sure it was water on top of the ice, but one never knows. I certainly wasnt going to stop and check it out. Needless to say, I took a different path back to the truck.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
