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

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
