ICE thickness on area lakes

13 posts in this topic

Have not been up there since Saturday and was only on around 7.5 inches of ice just want a general idea of area thickness on lakes now since the cold weather. Any help would be great as I plan on using my big fish house for the first time this weekend. Thanks.

That's why you work your Fanny off for 8 months so that you can enjoy the winter outdoors. Keep up the great reports and great fishing , I would like you to work on that picture thing though.:2c:

Ill admit I unfortunately don't post a lot of photo's. I do have 3 photo albums full and my basement looks like cabelas with mounts and replicas.  I am kind of a old school kind of guy that doesn't like to draw a lot of attention to my fishing spots or myself. Its a lot easier to stay on good fishing that way. :)

on the lake tonight and drilled holes to check ice thickness and out of the 20 spots we checked it ranged from 9.5-13 inches of ice. A lot of full size trucks and big houses roaming around. I wont even start about the truck that must have had speeds up to 45mph coming off the lake.

Was on Koronis today. Ice ranged from 7 to 10 inches. Was a bad day to forget my ice cleats :crazy: There's a good crack going from the point to first island, then to second island. Fishing wasn't too hot, bunch of little perch.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
