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

la qui parle last sunday was about 50/50 open water to ice; at least far as i could tell going over milan bridge; few guys fishing off hwy 40 for crappies but all they caught was one sheephead sunday afternoon. but now after a week of temps and rain, not to mention a few geese swimming around...it may be all open water now.

      I remember you jabbering something about smoking some crappies at the GTG but I don't hear the best so I thought-What? They look Great!

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
