Ice off on Big Cormorant?

6 posts in this topic

Is the ice off of Big Cormorant yet? I have a feeling it's still ice covered but am curious because I was supposed to head up there next weekend to help put my grandpa's dock and boat lift in. Hopefully the lake will be mostly ice free by next weekend. If anyone has driven by and could give me the status it would be appreciated!

Still on, it may be pulled far enough away from shore by next weekend though.

Hiya -

Talked to my brother - he'd been down working on our cabin on Crystal. Said it was still locked up tight shore to shore. Crystal's one of the later ones to go out, as is Lida, but still going to be a bit I think.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

      Well I've traveled all around northern MN. As far as fishing goes lake vermilion in northern MN that's a place that's fits what your looking for. Lodging I'm not sure about. Your staying for a week so anywhere you stay is going to be expensive due to length of stay but a lot of resorts offer discounts for staying so many nights. Hope this helps you narrow your decision.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
