I drove by Clear Lake today (3-29) about 10 am, and there was about 20' of ice "buildup" on the north shore, right out from the boat landing.

Other than that, the lake was open.

My 5 year old is getting the itch. He got a new fishing rod for Christmas, and open water can't come soon enough.

Not to mention I bought a new boat last fall and didn't get out nearly enough, maybe Dad's alittle itchy too???? Fishing wise??? blush.gif

Forest lake one is starting to give way with 50 yards of open water on the south shore today and a big rift in the middle of the lake so I'd say another day or two and a little wind and rain and it will be open as well.

Clear Lake was in the same condition today. It's pulled away from the shoreline, too.

SoHaad, give me a shout, I'm thinking Redwing or maybe a trout run up the shore. I have a stay at home weekend this weekend but maybe we can hit the Croix Good Friday if you are off.

Tunrevir,

Hey buddy, I've been meaning to give you a shout for weeks now. You know how it goes. I'll try calling you tonight. I may be getting a different boat. I'm also itching to get out on the Croix.

Forest Lake is really opening up today. There are several open areas, including areas in the middle. If our weather continues or get a good wind, it may be ice free by Monday.

FL one almost clear tonight and with the rain and wind I have to beleive it will be open by the weekend! Sohaad, I am planing on hittin the river on good Friday don't now if that works for you or not. The boat you have, my dad may be interested in it for a Florida boat and in that case you may get to fish from it again! He is looking for something to keep down there on the river and feels the Tin Can is not big enough, can you send me some specs on your boat? Might be a good deal for us all the way around!

Tunrevir~

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
