Leech Lake Ice?

7 posts in this topic

Was wondering how thick ice is? Planning to come up on feb. 8th. Need to know if I have to get an extension for my auger or not. Any info would help? Thanks.

I was fishing in Walker bay on Sat, moved around to about 3 places, I'd say it was an average 17-18 inches in the spots I fished.

Good luck!

Saw people driving just about everywhere in Walker Bay, I can't comment much on the rest of the lake we have a place on Pine point and there were a few driving on Traders but majority of traffic was sleds and wheelers.

We fished Walker Bay Monday & Tuesday and found 24” to 28” of ice when we drilled. Depth depends on the amount of snow cover. We drove an

SUV without problems, except for getting stuck in the snow once. There were quite a few others driving as well.

Fished the main lake earlier in the week, west shore at the south end, and found 18” to 20”. I traveled with a four wheeler on the big lake.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
