Ice Thickness

6 posts in this topic

I am planning on coming up to fish this weekend off of Arneson's. What is the ice thickness in this area? Is there a road going out from the access (not Arnesons access, the other one)? Do we need to bring the four wheeler or can we get by with just the truck? Thanks for the replies.

Jacob -

Ice is good, about 24" depending where you are. Road access is Babblers rd. It's just before arneson's. No worries on a pick-up, the road goes all the way to 16mile. Good luck and can't wait to hear a report when you get back....heading up next weekend, can't wait! gator

We fished at Gull Rock, just off out of Babblers again this weekend. The main road is good, but some of the side roads are not cleaned. Be very aware of were you are as we had to shovel last weekend, this weekend we were able to push out. Have Fun!

We were in 27ft of water with about 24" of ice. 2 perch, 1 was a keeper, 1 eel pout, 13 sauger/walleye 4 were keepers. Pink and white angle eye, pink/white jig heads were most effective. No fish after 1 pm

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
