Ice??

3 posts in this topic

Just curious if any of the smaller ponds or even some of sloughs got ice on them yet? I was reading some posts from up north and all their smaller lakes got ice on them. I noticed the weather is suppose to warm up again and be in 50's for a couple of days, thats not going to help make or keep any ice. I thought I would maybe start a post, so we can tell what lakes have ice on them and what lakes don't, I really need to get on the water! Take it easy guys!

Minnesota Ice conditions can be found here. Once area lakes start to freeze over users will start posting in this forum. I can start a new thread when the time comes, so early ice anglers know which lakes are iced or not.

Many of the small ponds and wetlands froze over twice and melted already this month. The past couple days had temps low enough to freeze them back up but the wind has been keeping them open. Temps in the upper 40's and 50's that are forecasted next week will keep many lakes open for a few more weeks mad.gif I might as well bring my swim shorts and sunblock back out with this golbal warming we're having. Anyone who still has their boat out and fishing open water might be wiser then we think...

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
