Friday Night Ice...

4 posts in this topic

My cousin has a wild hair up his "you know what" and he seems to think that the Ice will be safe on Friday. We are thinking about heading up to search out some trophy class Crappies and some Bull Bluegills. What are the Ice conditions up there right now?

Thanks,

Corey Bechtold

Be careful! I think its walkable but its going to iffy!

If I was "gung ho" on panfish I would go out with a lifejacket and picks!

Otherwise good luck and have fun!!!! Let us know how you do! I"m going to the Rainy River with the other 10,000 ppl! haha

I heard that the lake we are fishing has 2.5' of Ice and it is tight to shore. Hopefully it's still there because it looks like I'm heading up for sure.

Thanks for the heads up,

Corey Bechtold

p.s.

Have fun on Rainy! laugh.gif

Yesterday in the area we did get some rain for awhile in the morning and then some again last night. Drove over to Blackduck and saw a 4 wheeler out there, but don't think I'd be on there. There are a few lakes that haven't been highly traveled and as of yesterday afternoon we had some folks out that said the one they were on was still holding up pretty good at the shoreline and were heading back out this am, but each lake is different. But this is definitely the last weekend. Be careful and good luck!

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
