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!

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
