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

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
