Info on dry ice

Recommended Posts

Guest

We are headed up next week on a houseboat trip out of the Ash river. Does anyone know where we could find dry ice to restock our coolers before getting on the boats. We will be spending the night in Superior Wis. and heading in from there. Any info would be greatly appreciated. The closed to Voyageurs the better.

Thanks
Dan

Dan,
The closest place we have found is a "mom and pop shop" (I don't recall the name) that is about 5 miles south of the Ash River on 53. It is a white house/gas station with a deer refuge/petting zoo. The dry ice is also reasonably priced there. Hope this helps.

The place you are looking for is a gas station gift shop called Cold Springs. Its about 3-4 miles from the Ash river trail. They advertise dry ice. I also suggest you buy your bait there as well. They will oxygen pack your minnows and leeches. They sell crawlers for $10 a hundred. You'll save a buck or two.

Dustys6,
yes, it looks like a number of storms have hit the area the past few days. I was there mid june and the water level was high then. Iam heading up next monday myself so I guess we'll find out.
As far as fishing, I would bet the fish have move onto the reefs and will be in the 20 to 35 ft range. Crawlers and leeches will be my first choice but you gotta take minnows just in case.
Good luck and I know you love the area.

IF COLD SPRINGS IS OUT PHILS GATEWAY ALSO CARRIES DRY ICE. ITS ON 53 A LITTLE NORTH OF THE ASH TRAIL TURN OFF. BUT I WOULD TRY COLD SPRINGS FIRST AND DUSTY'S GOT GOOD ADVICE ON THOSE MINNOWS I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW LONG THEY KEPT. WE RAN OUT ON THE 4TH DAY AND THEY WERE STILL LIVELY.

GOOD FISHIN

Thanks for the great info.Dusty,maybe will run into you up there.We will be in 2 houseboats from Ebels with 2 of their boats and 2 boats we are towing up with us.One is a Smokercraft,but I'm not sure what the other boat is.Both have Illinois numbers.Just look for the boats with all of the boys(13 of them)and dads.Could share a beer and a few fishing tales,and maybe guidance on a few good spots.We are thinking of trying the western part of Namakan and eastern Kabby,although longer trips are not a problem.Let me know,and thanks.

Dan,
I seldom turn down a beer. I'll keep my eye out for ya. I have a green/tan Crestliner with a gray yamaha mtr.
There will be three of us. I plan on fishing mostly on Namakan but may venture into kabby depending on the bite. Ebels should be able to help you out with spots to fish to get you started.
Good luck and have a great trip. If I don't see you on the water, post a line here on how your trip went.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
