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.

      New to the forum. Glad I was able to find a good forum for trout fishing in the SE area! I had probably my best year of trout fishing this year on the whitewater. Here are a few that I managed to get throughout the year. The first one was in the 16" range and the second one was about 18".

      Whose road is that at the bottom of the picture? I am thinking that one of JR's roads is the one that goes off at a diagonal, the second road from the bottom of the picture. The road I am asking about seems more toward the reservation line.   Thanks.

      Myr Mar is open on the northwest side. Garrison sports is too, I believe.

      Fish the deeper holes and you'll find some suspended cats. They seem to be cruising around about 28-32' under the ice.
