Most of the smaller lakes around Buffalo have ice on them, exact thickness is unkown.

15 minutes ago, I saw 2 guys out on Pelican Lake (Ice fishing) in St. Michael. Do not know what ice conditions are, but those 2 guys think it is safe. Only the small bays were frozen when I drove by on Sunday. 2 days of cold, I would not be out there.

I think Buffalo is gonna freeze over whenever the winds calm down (I think tonight) and the small pond by my house has 3-4" on it.

I think some of hte smaller lakes will be fishable by this weekend.

i think your right, its just a matter of how the wind is going to effect it. When i look out the window right now, it looks like its going to be windy all night long.

I am new around here (forum) and area. I live in Monticello and work in Delano. I take a different way to and from work depending on which lake I think will have ice on it. This morning I thought for sure Constance would be covered and even brought a spud bar with to see how thick it would be. I was surprised to see about a 1/3 of it still open. Looked like a lot of geese were fighting the cold off. Will have to take the bar over to Pelican on the way home and check it out. Maybe swing by Dean as well.

Not anymore. The wind has broken up Buffalo and it was open in spots when I drove by at about 5.

There talking 5-10 inches of snow for the weekend. That is sure to mess up the ice making if true.

There might be with tap water in a cup in your garage but on the lakes there are to many variables. Wind, lake depth, water clarity ect.

      Real men can wear pink! Lol

      Yeah, Chris. I was hoping to get some color. Unfortunately, bright pink was not the color I had in mind.

      Went to the chain on the boat did not get to far. No cats had a good time felt good to hear the Yamaha purr. It's sure moving the water that is.
    • Brandon Klatt
      Exactly, a 5fish limit would do wonders.

      Thanks to all for sharing.  I also hadn't heard of this before. Regarding the cheeks, what size does the walleye need to be to make them worthwhile?  I never keep any walleyes over 20".

      There were trucks out on Isle Bay yesterday, and ALLOT of snow remains on the main lake. I think significant open water for the opener is a long shot at best.

      man them well most of them are along 38 north of rapids. some of them little puddles too!!!!!!

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      The Pine River stripping station will begin running on Monday, April 23rd.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.
