5 posts in this topic

Just thought I would post a ice report. I was on gun yesterday and there is about 8-9 inches. not much action though as far as fish go.

Was that suposed to be 18" to 19"? I sure would hate to think I was driving my 1 ton van all over the lake on sunday on only 8 to 9".

I do agree on the panfish bite. We saw plenty of crappies with the camera. Just could not get them to bite. The ones we did get where about .5#.

Saw plenty of northerns with the camera also.

well i was on the humps on the NE side of the lake and i had 8"-9". However it is usually the last place to freeze up. So depending on where you were at you could have been really lucky. I would think it might be a little early to be out with a vehicle that size.....but thats your decision crazy.gif do you fish gun very often?

I get around to fishing it maybe just a few times a year. My In Laws live right near there. We stuck to the west side and the south shore line. Had plenty of ice there. Found the same thing on Dam lake.

If I was up that way more often you would see me out there.

Easy does it out there folks.

Gun at this point has areas of 16" of ice, and areas with only 6" of ice. It can be unpredictable.

We were ice fishing at first ice on 4-5" of ice while there was plenty of open water on spots out there.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
