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...

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
