Ice Out On Cass

20 posts in this topic

Figured with all these warm temps we have here in C.L today and tomm, we should start melting(making) ice. Tonight there saying -20 to -25 below, but next week sounds like we could hit upper 30's or maybe find a 40 mark.

So the question is when will ice out be? State the date and time. Maybe we could make the official time that the ice is out when the C.L. club car falls through.

My guess is April 21st, at 11:45 a.m.

Are there any updates on the ice? It should be melting by now. We have had open water here in Central Iowa for the past 2 weeks.

We still have a LOT of ice... Shore line is where the ice seems to be getting weak, but out on the lake there is still 30 inches plus... I'm not sure on what to make of the 27-30 inches of snow we got here in Cass Lake... If it melts fast and the sun continues to get higher and higher, I think the melt off from the snow will cause the honeycomb to proceed faster... In return faster Ice out... Just heard on the radio that we have like three more systems coming through Minnesota this week, not sure if it is all snow or rain, but sounds like a very active weather pattern....

My guess got SMOKED! So new guess.......the ice will go out after the HORDES of fishers in the area let their temper get the best of them . It will raise the air temp about 20 degrees, and be a contributing factor in the spring thaw and ice-out .........

May 13th, 4:00 p.m.

I just hope it's out by Memorial Day.... I'd hate to cancel my trip mad.gif

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.

      Rented a sleeper out on Garrison Bay Sunday night with some friends. Fishing was slow but we managed a few walleyes. Best went 23" on the rattle reel. Was a lot of fun though, wish the bite could have been better. How is everyone else doing out there? Any good bites or has it pretty much slowed down for everyone.     Here is a video of the trip:
