East side ice conditions?

4 posts in this topic

Just curious if there are any new areas to stay away from around Big Point to hunters point area right now. Fishing the contest tomorrow and was wondering how the ice is now after all the wind. I know the ice is really thick but just wondering about any new cracks or openings out there???

I just called up to hunters today and they said we would still be fine to drive on there for the contest. I will also be up for the contest tomorrow. I was just there on wednesday and it was cracking up by shore but once you got out a little ways you were fine. I drove out seven miles to the mud flats. The lady on the phone said they have been working hard to keep bridges across all of the cracks that have been opening up. Didn't look the safest when I came off on wednesday but I guess they know what they're doing. Good luck tomorrow. and be safe. The jumbos are biting if you can find them.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
