Mora Ice conditions

9 posts in this topic

I am wondering how the ice is around Mora, I was hoping it holds out for another week. I want to head out over the 31st but I don't want to make a trip to find out I should have brought the boat.

I don't know about the lakes right around Mora, but I live on a lake about 20 miles from Mora. I was out on it yesterday, and we still have two feet of good ice. We have the same weather, so I would think Mora's lakes would still have fishable ice. Probally not quite the info you wanted, but the best I can do.

Thanks for the up date, I was thinking about hitting fish lake and just walking out but who knows I go 3 bills so if I can walk out most people can walk out. Good luck on the ice!!!

Not sure about fish lake, but people are still fishing Ann. Some nice sunnies have been coming out of there the last week or so after a horrible winter bite out there. the access off 47 is closed, so you'll have to use the other one to the north east.

Bigjeff I was out on Fish on Friday and a guy was driving his Subaru all around the lake. I really thought he was going to go thru but he made it off the lake.The ice will be good for sat and sun but its going fast.

Ok, I am thinking of going on Sunday to Fish, think it would be possible to walk out there? How much ice was out there? I am a little worried about the where the river comes in, with the warm weather I am thinking it is eating ice fast. Thanks for the updates

i am near the Mora area but have not seen the lakes like fish inthe last 2 weeks.....but i am not even 20 miles to the west and the lakes are not for venturing out on anymore.....i was on green on saturday in princeton and you had 20 ft to get to the main sheet of ice and even then the ice was starting to really look bad. the last three days have convinced me that ice season is done for unless you go 4+ hours north of the cities like red lake!!! Good luck but you might want to bring a pole and shore fish!! Alot of lakes have been losing 2-4 inches of ice if not more a day!!!!!!! crazy.gif

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive

      Nailed the Crappies last night in 2-3 feet of water!!   They were all 9-10" and skinny runts for the length.   All were catch n release and topped off with a 18 64/65th " bass at dark!!  it was as close as 19" you could go with out being 19" LOL   What a rush on 4 pound test    Tried to take a pic and flash wouldn't work on phone      Cret
