Ice Fishing Season Over?

4 posts in this topic

I made my first ever trip to Red last Spring. It was a tremendous area. Something that should be there for all to enjoy. It was sad yo see the, shall we say, unfriendlyness that exist between the tribe and non-tribe members. I know it has developed this way over decades, but I hope all sides would look more at the possibilitys than what has gone wrong in the past. I would think the lake could be a greater resorce for the tribe than any casino could ever be.

I will be there again the last week of may. I come from North Central Iowa and love the area. I wish you were not 8 hours away, but I guess that is what makes your area so special.

I like to fish and love to hunt! We have great Whitetails in Iowa but I would bet you have some nice bucks up there.

Oh, by the way, is the ice season over? I read with great envey all of the ice fishing reports. I hope to get up there and experience 1 time. Also, when is the latest the ice has ever gone out?

Enjoy where you all live, it is a VERY SPECIAl place, I would guess if you live there you might sometimes forget how special it is!

Ice fishing season is not over yet. I drove my atv out today from West Wind with no problems. We are going to have some cold weather for the next couple of days which should make it easy to get out. With the snow we got last night the snowmobile should go good, and make it easier to cross the pressure ridge.

The latest I'v ever seen the ice on the lake was is 97 or 98. My dad and I walked out on the ice on walleye opener in May.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
