H2A, you can find a Bside ice report on the ice report thread back on the third page, or just go here .

The big dump of snow we got yesterday won't help matters, but probably the wind kept the most open areas swept off OK.

Talked to a guy that had been all over Burntside with skis and partially with a snowmobile.

4 to 7 inches everyplace they went.

This was last week, and did not figure in this curse that Mother Nature laid on us yesterday, which may well be the final nails in the ice coffin for the year. confused.gif

Two sets of snowmobile tracks on BS river this morning looked to have a lot of water in them.

With the weather forecast up to January 7th, I would have to say the Burntside will have little to no car or truck traffic on it this year. mad.gif

Snowbank won't be much better.

Big lake also loaded with slush this morning.

IN the weather field, and what you guys need is a couple nights and days with, not the temp, but the wind chill being -30to -40. The wind make the snow/slush lose it's insulating qualties much quicker than just the temp. A -30 to -40 WC is about = to the air temp being -45 to -55 and no wind. Trust me, I have first hand kniowledge as I grew up on a lake for over 25+ years.

I'd like to agree with you, but these heavy snowfalls the last two weeks were the perfect storm for horrible ice conditions. frown.gif

We were on the road to recovery from the first 1 foot dropping, and the slush finally started to set up, but this one is bad.

I have no doubt that your scenerio would assist the ice, but our best bet (good luck) would be a warming trend with a hard half day rain, stop, then have temps plunge.

We had the rain two days ago, but it turned to snow and dumped lots, DANG IT!! mad.gif

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
