Current ice situation?

6 posts in this topic

I hoping to put our dock in on Little Pine and the in-law's dock on Lower WF asap. Anyone know what the current ice situation is up there? Are we thinking 2-3 more weeks??

Thanks

I think that 2-3 weeks is reality now. I think it will be an average ice out or later. I would plan on late April.

I was up at my in-laws cabin this past weekend near Pequot and could't believe all the snow and ice. I hadn't been up since X-mas and I think there is more snow up there in April than there was in Dec. I was up there cleaning out woodduck boxes and worried I may be too late, but everything was still locked up in terms of lakes. The past three or four years I usually had a bird or two in the boxes up there at this time already , but not this year yet. Maybe a later walleye spawn this yr. in comparison to the past couple of yrs.....or maybe this is finally a normal yr. I think we have been getting spoiled the past 10 yrs. in terms of Spring.

It seems like one step forward and two steps back around here lately. I look out my office window and the bluebird box that already had occupants two weeks ago is empty since the grassy field around it is half covered w/ snow. Today's forcast for snow is under the two steps back part, too. Although, I'll take it since the moisture is very needed around here. I think all it will take is next weeks guess at mid 50's or better to return us to "normal" and to start opening up all my crappie hotspots for action... It makes it easier to turkey hunt next week knowing I'm not missing all the 12" crappies too.

With the cold snap lately I thought I might see some fearless/foolish fisherman out again and last night I saw two people out fishing in the middle of Round and this AM one guy with a portable out on West Twin. I really want to fish but I will be waiting for the soft water. Hoping it will warm up and open up soon.
