Late March Ice Conditions Bemidji/Cass/Winnie

4 posts in this topic

What is the ice like on these lakes the last week of march during a typical winter? Would going up there the last weekend of march be out of the question this year?

Definatly not out of the question at all. Still plenty of good ice up there. Plus the Jumbos are on the FEED Bag.

That's what I'm hoping for. Hopefully the shoreline ice will still be locked up, don't want to have to use a plank or board to cross open water onto the ice, not willing to go that route.

Yeah I know what you mean.

Hopefully that shore ice will stay intact until then. Ice is around the 30 inch mark in most spots right now. More cold temps ahead it looks like.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
