How thick is the ice?

7 posts in this topic

At the risk of annoying some people here: Extensions needed yet? I'll bring it just in case, but I was just wondering.

Thanks,

Randy.

No need for an extention. Weeks yet before needing one probably?

Hi; We used our extension last week, as we use a sluch bucket in our house when drilling. Had great luck so hope you have the same.

Soon we will be closing in on 30 inches of ice on the western part of the lake (. You wouldn't think there would be that much of a difference of ice thickness in the different regions of the lake but because of rainy's current i'm sure that fluctuates the thicknesses. Good luck fishing!!

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
