I have often wondered how on earth are people supposed to know how much ice will be anywhere in one week? I mean, come on people.

Be nice, we are all anxious to get up there. Better to ask than not. I CALL LYBACKS EVERY 15 MINUTES AND ASK, "ICE ANY THICKER? MY HOUSE OUT YET?"

hehe

The advice is good, keep checking with the resorts you plan to pull out of.

Naw, this year we just got a cool LED Cabela's lantern...works great when you gotta walk house to house at night without the moon!

Merry Christmas Mick.

By the way, we got out on the big pond on Thursday...ice is sketchy where we are putting the houses. Hope it gets better in a week or so. We had about 10 - 11". Should be able to place the houses by next weekend where we want if we get some ice growth.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Funny and it worked.  Say, how did you get out without Mommy and the kids?

      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
