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.

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
