Ice

7 posts in this topic

While doing my route today, with the snow falling, I noticed that there was some ice near the shores in the protected bays on the river. Also the entire back bay of Striker Bay was covered with snow. Early ice this year????>>later the load

I would love early ice! I just hope we dont get a bunch of snow before we get good walkable ice on most lakes.

Long lake opened up last week. As soon as this wind stops blowing I think we'll see ice all over.

I think most of the ice we see now will melt off this mid week. Temps look like I may have to bring the boat out for a few more days.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      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.
