Burntside Laker Timing

5 posts in this topic

So if you could only fish Burntside one weekend between now and the close of the season, which I believe is 3/16, would you go in Feb, or one of the last two weekends it's open in March? When are the peaks and lulls of the winter laker season?

Trying to coordinate a trip with multiple schedules to a buddies cabin in Ely.

Thanks!

Every day is a potential peak.

Every day is a potential lull.

Throw a dart at the calendar!! \:\)

PS-Make sure the weather is good on the day the dart picks.

On balance, I've had my best luck the first three or four weeks of the season on Bside, but G.O. is right, too. If you can't get up for the first part of the season, there's still good fishing to be had, and it only takes a couple nice fish on the ice to make it a great laker day. That can happen on any given day of the season.

The last couple weekends of the season can be the most fun, however, because if you get one of those nice warm sunny March days in the 40s or 50s, it's a blast drilling 30 holes and hole hopping all day in the sun.

Thanks for the quick responses. Assuming normal weather conditions, driving is still an option on Burntside come mid-March?

Driving in March depends a lot on snow. Very little snow on the ice now, but March is of course a ways out.

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
