First Ice

14 posts in this topic

Blackduck lake is frozen over. Can Red Lake be far behind? Unless it warms up or the wind blows should be walking out on Thanksgiving!

I work at Ponemah which is near the point where LRL and URL meet. Ice as far as I can see on the LRL.

I should clarify. The north end fo LRL is ice as far as I can see. The south end was still wide open when I drove by this morning.

Stephen- As far as I know as soon as you can drive out on the lake, the plows are out too. Rogers , hudecs and West Wind do a very excellent job clearing roads!!

Not much longer till we can be drilling holes.

Thanks for the information wood. I love this site when winter comes around. Everyone is willing to help the next guy out, which is tough to get out of a local when the hard water comes around. I'll be up to URL on the 4th, 5th and 6th of January. Anyone else? I'd like to finally meet some regs from here and have a drink or two. The captain morgan is on me.

Fish On!

Stephen, people usually can drive on around Christmas. Sometimes earlier and sometimes later. Maybe earlier this year if things stay cold. Temps have been in the single digits at night and upper teens to low 20's in the day. The resorts will usually have a trail marked onto the lake as soon as the ice is safe.

Fourplay- Ol'Marbleeye has disappeared again! I heard from him a couple of weeks ago,so we may have to go wake his butt up and get him going again.

Thanks for the information fourplay, now I've really got the itch!!! Could someone verify that the "usual" drive out time with a vehicle is around Christmas. Does anyone know whether the plows begin at this time also? Any info would be appreciated. Whats the temps been like as of late?

Fish On!

If you are up there on those dates in January, I will definitely be there if the Captain is on you. Nothing like a great day of fishing and sailing with the Captain.

Ben,
I will definately be up there on those dates. Stop by the Shooks Royal Motel and we can hook up from there or email me at tiebel1@aol.com and we'll set something up. I'm thinking about heading up this weekend too.

Stephen- Are you a Schmishny? SOrry about butchering your name? I grew up in NOrthome, so just wondering who you are. Drop me a note @ shanson@redlake.k12.mn.us.

Happy Turkey Day!!
