You were walking out on the ice? How far from shore were you? I can't wait to see some ice action on URL!

I'm hearing 3 to 6 inches of ice in 5 feet of water and less. 2 to 3 inches of ice beyond the 8 foot break. I'm really surprised that yesterdays wind did not break it up. Low temps, highs in the teens and lows in single didgits after mid week.

Sweet! Ah, Ice Fishing on Thanksgiving Weekend - that's what I like to hear.

Suppose to get cold mid-week, so that'll help...

Now I'm pumped !! grin.gif

That's really good news - thought for sure that wind would do a number on the ice on Red.

Everything is looking really good for a smooth freeze-up so far....

You won't catch me on the ice for a week or more, Red would like nothing more then to open up and swallow a couple more anglers. To many times she has teased us until everybody felt safe then opens up in a wind.

If you gou out be careful and use every precaution you can until she has had time/temps to lock up solid.

Jon, did those gusty winds this past night break up the ice or is it still locked up.

The good thing is we're in a cold weather pattern now.

I was in Redby yesterday afternoon and was surprised to see some blue water on Lower Red Lake.

This morning I think it should have been cold enough to make water hard. It might be a tough winter if we are seeing a negative sign in front of the temp before December.

i guess being they say lower is deeper that would hold true?

She stayed lock up and is looking good although this recent snowfall is putting alot of weight and insulation on the ice. Starting to see slush pockets already.

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!
