Recommendations for 2/17-2/19?

6 posts in this topic

My dad and I are coming up from Fargo for the long President's Weekend and were wondering whether fishing the Pine Island area or Whiskey Flats would be a better choice at this time of the year?

Also, what depth should we plan on looking for in each of these areas? Do we need to bring portables to fish shallow in the morning and evening or will the bite be steady out deep?

Thank you in advance for information.

I fished out from Pine Island last weekend. We were fishing 27' of water. The bite was pretty consistant throughout the day, with the best bite coming in the late morning hours. I was disappointed in the dusk bite though. If we had portables I would have tried some shallower water at sundown. Hope that helps...good luck!

      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.
