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

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.
    • Sushilicious
      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
