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.

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
