First Ice

7 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on when the first fishable ice will be in the Gunflint Trail area. I am getting excited and wanted to know what others were thinking. I heard that many of the ponds in the Ely area had ice on them over the weekend. Is this true?

we had some ice on most ponds and small lakes earlier this week around duluth as well.

for the gunflint as well as anywhere else it is just too early to tell. I would like to guess around thanksgiving (we were out before that last year) but you never know.

Some lakes should have ice before thanksgiving around Gunflint. I think we will be fishing around here before turkey day.

Quick are you going to the wild game feed or working it? Let me know.

Quick,

That is rather weird.

I am excited to get up to the Grand Marais area again. I always go to GM for deer hunting and from time to time there is enough ice for me to sneek out and catch a few eyes. With the colder than normal fall I am very hopeful that this will be the case again this year.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      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...
