LOW Adrian's Road - What are the conditons?

4 posts in this topic

I'm headed up Thursday, March 15. I heard it is getting wet out there and there are a couple of pressure ridges that are getting hard to cross. What are the latest conditions for the Adrian's Road area??????

Thanks

We had no problem on Sunday with an SUV. The only part that was wet was over the island. The pressure ridges were easily passable at that time.

Deep: I'd check with Adrian's (218 634 1985) just before you leave to go up there, because today a buddy of mine said there was a lot of water on the ice over Pine. They got out and did catch fish, but it may be a little dicey... Kaz

Was out on Adrian's Road today (monday)& conditions are very good.

A fair amount of surface water and most of that on the bay. Don't think I found any deeper than 4 or 5 inches.

Thing to remember is there is 4 feet of ice under there and most of the bay where the road runs is frozen solid to the bottom.

The road should actually start healing up this week as the temps continue to drop. Lots of good ice fishing left!

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
