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.

      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?
