season over

5 posts in this topic

Went to Bloody today and couldn't even get on the lake. ice was about 10-15' from the shore. Stopped at Bean and Double on the way home and found the same.

I hope this message saves someone else from driving 55 miles one way. One guy even had his boat along the edge of the water. I should have brought my casting rods.

It saddens me to say it, but I feel my ice season is over also. However, it really cheers me up to say I dug out my boat last night and after this weekend it will have a brand spankin new deck on it!!!!!! Hopefully the wiring problems will be fixed, new battery, a windshield, and most importantly......a new cup holder.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
