Ice Thickness on Ann Lake?

Recommended Posts

Rather_B_Fishing

Does anyone know how thick the ice is on Ann Lake (just north of Ogilvie on Hwy 47)? Has there been any trucks or cars driving on it yet? Thanks.

I am not sure on the thickness, as I have never fished it, but I am wondering how people fish the lake. It seems from looking at the maps that there is a pretty decent break out a ways from shore that goes from 5-14 feet in a hurry. Do people generally set up on the break or is it more of a roaming school lake?

As of Sun the 30th 10-12 inches. there was alot of spots of really bad slush. when I was out there was a pickup, also a minivan that got stuck. I was fishing not far from the dirt landing off of hwy47 so I dont know whats going on at the other end of the lake.

This lake is very tough to fish IMO. The water is very dirty when I have fished and the are a couple creeks that flow through and the Ann River also flows through there. I did catch a couple walleyes but nothing worth bragging about on that break early ice but it has slowed since.

Biff,

Is it any easier to fish during open water, my dad lives in Ogilvie and we have been wanting to hit that lake in the boat. Now that my buddy has the H2Oc with the lakemaster chip, we just may have to with 1' contours.

Have not fished during open water. I hear there are some bull sunfish in there if you can find them. I here big sunnies and some walleye action buy have yet to find them.

      We would like to recognize 4 of our best posters in the forums and the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club. I will be giving each one a special goodie, if they get into the right club soon enough. Special thanks goes to @IceHawk, @Borch, and @monstermoose78 for the contributions leading what will require a persistent high quality effort to make the Fishing Report Club a must stop spot for fishing information. The 4 TOP GUN anglers who have been amazingly consistent since we first opened up the Fishing report club are: @AlwaysFishing23, @ANYFISH2, @Jim Almquist, and @mrpike1973. I'd like you 4 to check the right club out to claim your goodie by next Monday. Yes it will pay to pay attention to what is going on in here. The fishing reports will just keep getting better. Keep your eyes open. More goodies will be given based on different criteria, like best stories in the forums and clubs, best pictures, best videos, and more. Have fun and enjoy the ride.

      Congrats jfitz! I was in boat 85 in the big tiller Lund right behind you guys leaving the harbor. Our nice fish we had going completely disappeared on us.

      I hope you and your dad don’t mind passing along the story of your weekend. It’s a great story and defies conventional wisdom. Congratulations! The best fishermen have skill, intuition, and a little luck on their side.

      Welcome to to Fishing Minnesota, TheEyesofanAngler. My favorite lake for bass in our area is definitely Clearwater. It takes a bit to learn the lake, but the rewards are more than worth it.  Littlerock also holds some very nice Largemouth with a few bonus smallies mixed in... I know you said lakes and ponds, but the Mississippi here in town and  the sections above the Sartell and Blanchard dams all are exelent smallmouth fisheries.

      Was it a G.Loomis Conquest Mag Bass rod with a Shimano® Calcutta Conquest reel on it?  That would be mine!

      I have snorkeled on head o lakes (off our beach) and it is usually ok.   Not Hawaii clear but 5 to 10 feet visibility....  OK, maybe 10 is a stretch, but pretty good.
