Burntside ice!

5 posts in this topic

Just checked the ice thickness 40 feet from shore on a bay I know froze very early in December.

There is a double layer of ice, a soft 2 inch top layer, about an inch or 2 of water, then just over 8 inches of ice that is very soft. frown.gif

The shoreline there has slush, but not as much slush as the snowmobile tracks by the Van Vac landing.

There is also a hole of open water about 100 feet from shore at Van Vac.

The snowmobile trail is staked, but I do not know the ice conditions out there. confused.gif

HaHa!!!

Did you check out from the "Top-Secret Landing"??? cool.gif

Did you get a load of that guy's face in the store who asked me where I was fishing to which my reply was "Super Secret Location." The look on his face when I said that was classic!!! smirk.gif

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
