Ice Thickness

Recommended Posts

JacobMHD

I am planning on coming up to fish this weekend off of Arneson's. What is the ice thickness in this area? Is there a road going out from the access (not Arnesons access, the other one)? Do we need to bring the four wheeler or can we get by with just the truck? Thanks for the replies.

Jacob -

Ice is good, about 24" depending where you are. Road access is Babblers rd. It's just before arneson's. No worries on a pick-up, the road goes all the way to 16mile. Good luck and can't wait to hear a report when you get back....heading up next weekend, can't wait! gator

We fished at Gull Rock, just off out of Babblers again this weekend. The main road is good, but some of the side roads are not cleaned. Be very aware of were you are as we had to shovel last weekend, this weekend we were able to push out. Have Fun!

We were in 27ft of water with about 24" of ice. 2 perch, 1 was a keeper, 1 eel pout, 13 sauger/walleye 4 were keepers. Pink and white angle eye, pink/white jig heads were most effective. No fish after 1 pm

      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

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
