Topside conditions on ice

3 posts in this topic

I was wondering what the topside of the ice is like as far as snowcover. I spent this past weekend in the Hinckley area ice-fishing and the lakes were all glaze-ice after melting and re-freezing. It was actually pretty welcome after we didn't go out over New-Years since it was so snowy and slushy.

Any help on the lakes is appreciated in advance.

Stick -have been on pokie and the snow has got pretty hard, tire tracks from yesterday didn't sink but a couple inches in the snow for the most part. Looked like a few spot that the snow was deeper but i ride a sled out there and it seems plenty chrunchy.

Thanks for the update. It's been about a month since I've been on the lake, but the conditions sound pretty favorable for easy travel and not too hard-packed where it's tough on the sled's track.

      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)
