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

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
