First Ice!

2 posts in this topic

Launched my boat today at the landing just past Windy Point bridge on Canadian side. Had to bust ice for several hundred yards to get out on main lake and also headed back into Rice Bay. This was past noon! 1/4 inch of good clear ice. Mostly gone when I cane in but I did see there was still lots of ice in the bay on the south side of highway near Reef Point Road.

I got nothing in Rice Bay except one bite off. Got 2 pike and 3 nice walleyes out in the main lake. Water was near 40 around the bridge so I was suprised to see all the ice.

I've been watching the lake on the Rainy Lake One Stop cam and you can see the ice building in the Black Bay shot.

      I believe it is the 49 bridge just a little south of there. Lots of ice chunks coming down.

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
