Ice depths on the Gunflint

5 posts in this topic

Going up for a couple nights of fishing next week and was hoping someone might have some ice thickness information. Thanks.

Spivak-

There is lots of ice-you'll get a workout w/ a hand auger cuz its pushing 3 feet and w/ this comming cold snap an extension for the power auger might come in handy. They have been driving trucks on gunflint for awhile but now the drifts are blown solid-I'd stick to a sled.

Redhooks is rite. Was up a week ago and ice was anywhere from 2 feet to just about hittin the auger head dependin on how hard snow was. Would deffintly to an extension alone, its better to have one and not need it than-you know.

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.

      Are the catfish still biting decent out there? Usually make it up earlier in the year have not made it up yet this year but I'm looking to come up one of the next couple evenings.
