Bald Eagle ice conditions

3 posts in this topic

Anyone know about the ice conditions on Bald Eagle?? I was out there last Saturday all day and the access on the western side near the outlet was a sloppy mess. Still about 20" of ice, but that was before the mid 50's earlier this week.

I am hoping to get out again this weekend but would like to avoid a chilly swim...

I am planning on hitting Bald Eagle on Sunday. I don't mind walking out now that the snow is gone. Does anyone know the ice thickness?

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
