Ice Thickness on Ann Lake?

6 posts in this topic

Does anyone know how thick the ice is on Ann Lake (just north of Ogilvie on Hwy 47)? Has there been any trucks or cars driving on it yet? Thanks.

I am not sure on the thickness, as I have never fished it, but I am wondering how people fish the lake. It seems from looking at the maps that there is a pretty decent break out a ways from shore that goes from 5-14 feet in a hurry. Do people generally set up on the break or is it more of a roaming school lake?

As of Sun the 30th 10-12 inches. there was alot of spots of really bad slush. when I was out there was a pickup, also a minivan that got stuck. I was fishing not far from the dirt landing off of hwy47 so I dont know whats going on at the other end of the lake.

This lake is very tough to fish IMO. The water is very dirty when I have fished and the are a couple creeks that flow through and the Ann River also flows through there. I did catch a couple walleyes but nothing worth bragging about on that break early ice but it has slowed since.

Biff,

Is it any easier to fish during open water, my dad lives in Ogilvie and we have been wanting to hit that lake in the boat. Now that my buddy has the H2Oc with the lakemaster chip, we just may have to with 1' contours.

Have not fished during open water. I hear there are some bull sunfish in there if you can find them. I here big sunnies and some walleye action buy have yet to find them.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
