Iceout?

8 posts in this topic

Had a guy I used to work with who lives on north Shetek call me and say that the ice was out as far as he could see as of Sunday afternoon. The wife and I came back from a weekend visit to the Cities and Talcot was ice free on Sunday afternoon. Pretty hard to believe when you think of all the snow sitting on them just two weeks ago.

Lime Lake ice is totally gone. There are a couple icebergs floating around but by this afternoon they will be gone.

Good thing my boat is almost ready.

From talcot to windom to bingham is open there was a boat on bingham the other day. No crappies out of the river yet. got yelled at by some guy at the windom dam for thowing a twister I guess you cant catch them on twisters or you cant get crappie in the eddies by the current only down steam not to lie but did get in to some walleyes but they are all swimming still

      Just got back, Warroad access is foot travel only two trucks broke thru on weds morn. Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey. I hope this helps you guys be careful out there and good luck.  Stay Safe Good Luck   Bear55

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
