ICE UPDATE

19 posts in this topic

Hi guys,
Can you please give us an ice update?
How much? How far out? The Bite?
I know it's been good and cold up there, we're looking to come up a bunch this year.

There is about 10 inches of ice where we put our houses about 3 miles out, the bite has been slow but should pick up some with more people to look for them.

ScottS,
An S10 could work real good. Years ago when Hillman's dropped their "bug" through with the V-plow on they set a house up over it until the ice got thick enough to get it out of the lake. They decided that the best fishing was right outside the drivers window. grin.gif

AAHH come on rigaman somebody has to be first to see if the ice is good. smile.gif I do like the Big Wheel idea. Doesn't it just cause a smile to imagine jigglestick heading across the lake on a Big Wheel. grin.gif Compass on the handle bars and his auger bouncing along behind. Maybe a pair of goggles also. cool.gif

rigaman, basically what the humor was saying is 10 inches probably isn't enough for a Blazer. No one is going to tell you it is. That is for you to find out yourself.

I like the Big Wheel idea though. If you talk nice maybe Kelly will let you borrow his. He usually parks it at West Wind. It is the one with the extra set of training wheels on grin.gif

I just checked Rogers resort site and he drove the f-150 with the plow out yesterday.

I won't get a chance to wet a line until Christmas break - so be sure to save a few fish for me!

      Sounds like my problem, Thanks

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup

      There are public beaches at both Hoodoo Point in Tower and McKinley Park in Soudan. Cliff

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
