Is anyone still ice fishing??

9 posts in this topic

I went out last Friday and couldn't find an open access anywhere. I only have a small Ford Ranger, and my understanding is that its hard to get on the lakes with a 4 wheeler. I just want to do some fishing, how about Little Detroit? I never made it over there Friday to check. Help!! It can't be the end, can it??

I've been out the last couple of nights maybe 30 miles north of detroit lakes, the slush at the landings is the worst part once on the lake it's not too bad but a 4x4 seems like a must.

Little D looked pretty wet this morning. With these warm temps accesses are looking very rough. Snowpack on the lakes look to be down significantly as well. I would plan on having something that is good blasting through slush.

Looks like cooler temps forecasted for later this week will help tighten things up a bit.

We went on the lake at a private or semi private access, Freind brought me there so not sure how private it is. However it looked like the plowed road was all the way to the public access. And I know there was a group of guys that had come from the public.

The private access on Lizzie is now closed, pretty much wrecking the guys yard. Was out there last night and walking is the only way now, public access is heaved up. I have a friend that lives there and he lets me go through his yard

I was out tonight, and the lakes are a mess. Driving no problem, but 6-10 inches of standing water everywhere. A couple days and it should drain, or some cold may freeze it. I'm hoping it stays warm and the ice goes quick, I want to chase crappies in the new to me boat laugh.gif.

I'm waiting for open water too, so I can start flyfishing...
