Wabasha backwaters

4 posts in this topic

How are the backwaters in the wabasha area looking? Is the ice pretty much gone yet? High water? Probably gonna be another 2 weeks before I'm down there, but just curious how things are looking now.

Most places are getting hard to get on due to the high water and now warm temps. Ice fishing will be done for the most part this weekend I believe, with the exception of the marina's and maybe Wilcox... Anything near the main channel or with a fair amount of current will not be fishable from the ice.

Yeah, I want the ice to be gone. I have the itch for some open water crappies...or in last years case, perch and largemouth bass.

Did hear of some crappies being caught up around the red wing area through the ice.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
