Shagawa ice update?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone have any updates on the ice condition on Shagawa? Might be heading up in a few weeks but it is dependent on being able to drive out to one of the islands with a pickup to a cabin.

No way would I drive a vehicle out there. I drilled some spots on Shagawa last week that had less than 10" of ice. The ice that we do have is not very good stuff and there is still some double ice out there.

Nice Looking Duck Dog there. Looks like He/she is ready to dive in.

Hemi, if you're three weeks out it's possible. We had three days of strong melt to knock down the snow and remove insulation, and if we get the usual spate of cold January weather it'll all tighten up and get thicker.

Check back in a couple weeks, I'd say, and we'll see how she goes.

Thanks for the info guys....and the compliment on the pup!!

I will wait to hear from the guy who owns the cabin and see what they are thinking in a weeks. Hopefully this cold front coming in will build some good ice up there!

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
