Ice report in Whap

9 posts in this topic

What's the ice report in Whap? Where's the ice in relation to the dam? How far downstream from the dam has the ice pushed out?

By the big cat>>I went down there last night after work there is hardly any ice, it is almost all free flowing. There was some ice built up by the 210 bridge where some big chunks are holdin it up? The water was high though, if were talking about the same dam, the water only made ripples where the dam is so it is pretty flat with lots of water. Does anyone ever fish it this early with the high water and such?

That is a very good place for walleyes!!! I used to leave a couple blocks from there and once the water goes down the walleyes will turn on!!! I fished about 100 yards from the dam!!

Only 3????? You are doing pretty good. Last year, I went through over $50 in jigs and I lost more than a few jerk baits. (in 5 trips) and it just so happened that the eyes were hitting jigs that cost 4 for $3.oo.

        My buddy and his dad dropped there front end of there pickup in on lake bemidji Saturday luckley they were able to get out with out harm. After all the rain and warm temps hopefully people learn now to stop driving. If you do go out walk not worth the risk. I'm looking at the forcast and after tonight the lows for nights are in the teens so hopefully things may heal up and I can get out a few more times. It's the middle of February I'm not going to be putting things away yet feels like I just got things out!

      We had to ride snowmobiles 30 miles out of the Canadian bush Monday and it was a mess. Filled our Otters with water even with covers strapped on.

      From what I am seeing on the Arnesen webcam, there is not much snow left.  Sleds would need scratchers.  Wheelers maybe a better option until we get more snow and there is none in the forecast.

      Coming up Thursday morning and planning on making the run to the reefs/islands via snowmobile.  Is there any loose snow left on the trail to keep the sleds cool, or would a 4 wheeler be necessary?  Any information from locals there would be very much appreciated.  Thx.
