6 posts in this topic

I know you can't predict what the weather is like but in general is there good sking conditions around the 20th of March? I haven't been sking for 3 or 4 years and wanted to try again when my son is off for Easter vacation.

Thnaks,

Will be this year. Tons of snow up there that-a-way. Should be a great ski season.

Here's a picture of the snow they got on Saturday......I'd say they will have a good spring ski this year!

The snow up in the Lutsen area is great right now, and should stay that way for a long time.We have a place on Caribou Lake and measured 18 inches of fresh snow while we were up there this past weekend.

Where on caribou. I have a cabin out of Grand Marais and love fishing carabou. I've been looking for an access to get to the back part of the lake in the winter, so that I don't have go all around the pennisula.

reelemin, its straight across from the access in the bay. Usually we have a snowmobile or wheeler so I cannot give you an easy way to the big side of the lake.

As for fishing, we fished hard for 3 days in various places and found them in 24 ft of water on the big side. Walleyes and perch mostly with a few bass a pike. I measured 14-17 inches of ice with the top 4-6 inches being frozen slush.We did notice that after all the snow there were some new slush areas starting so I hope it doesnt get too bad.

How often do you make it up in the winter? If you are up there often we should meet up and hit the ice some weekend we are both in the area. Unfortunately I wont be able to make it up anymore until the first week of February

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
