How Safe is the ice up there?

3 posts in this topic

I just read west winds website and it says their access is in good shape for four wheelers and snowmobiles? Anyone been out there? How is the bite?

Plenty of ice even for small trucks

I went out from WestWind on Friday. Took my snowmobile and ottersled. Getting around on the lake is easy with a sled. There's even snow to drive on now. It was quite windy so I didn't move more than a couple of times. Caught a lot of walleyes and perch. I'm going to go again during the week and hope the wind lets up some. The ice was about two to two and a half feet thick still. The ice on top is better quality ice than the bottom half. You can feel it when drilling holes.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
