30 posts in this topic

Anyone care to start a pool on the first measureable snowfall?

Im going with Nov 9th.

(Wade I cleaned up your post a bit to be more user friendly sort to say. E-mail me with any questions. Northlander)

Im going with November 22nd. I hope its only a dusting. I want soom good cold ice making weather before we get any measurable snow. Northlander

I think first measurable ice on fish lake would be more interesting. I also think the prize should be non-alcohol related so our under 21 FMers can jump in.

just a suggestion.

(I agree Quick. Northlander)

Ok, no problem. But I preffer snow on the ground before ice gets made...then a period of no snow with good cold weather to make good clear ice.

How about a six pack of "beverage of winners choice"

I hope we have a little of the white stuff on the ground for rifle opener. I will be optimistic and say Nov. 1, but then we don't need any until we get that good blue ice going so I can start chasing lakers and crappies. Also can't have freeze up be too early though so I can still duck hunt in Nov. I'm a hard guy to please!

work for the weather in DSM iowa,,,--- you will get snow and measureable at that--- maybe a inch or two-- as even Iowa will get some frozen mix come thurs. The ground is still warm-- but with temps in the 20's,, it will gather on grassy areas etc. Thurs-Fri it may not climb above 32F as far south as Hinkley-Brainerd- line.

Could change--- but right now this air mass is looking pretty cold mid-OCT.

I still doubt what we get around here will be "Measurable". I think the ground is still too warm to let what we get sit around too long.

Heck I still have to mow my grass 1 last time. mad.gif

Yeah, I do too, just to mulch the leaves. I don't rake. The way I figure it, if God didn't want 'em on the ground, he wouldn't have put them there.

I still say we only get 1-2" and none of it will stay long at all. It will be too wet. Now Ashland and south could get hammered.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
