Ice Out On Cass

Recommended Posts

beef

Figured with all these warm temps we have here in C.L today and tomm, we should start melting(making) ice. Tonight there saying -20 to -25 below, but next week sounds like we could hit upper 30's or maybe find a 40 mark.

So the question is when will ice out be? State the date and time. Maybe we could make the official time that the ice is out when the C.L. club car falls through.

My guess is April 21st, at 11:45 a.m.

Are there any updates on the ice? It should be melting by now. We have had open water here in Central Iowa for the past 2 weeks.

We still have a LOT of ice... Shore line is where the ice seems to be getting weak, but out on the lake there is still 30 inches plus... I'm not sure on what to make of the 27-30 inches of snow we got here in Cass Lake... If it melts fast and the sun continues to get higher and higher, I think the melt off from the snow will cause the honeycomb to proceed faster... In return faster Ice out... Just heard on the radio that we have like three more systems coming through Minnesota this week, not sure if it is all snow or rain, but sounds like a very active weather pattern....

My guess got SMOKED! So new guess.......the ice will go out after the HORDES of fishers in the area let their temper get the best of them . It will raise the air temp about 20 degrees, and be a contributing factor in the spring thaw and ice-out .........

May 13th, 4:00 p.m.

I just hope it's out by Memorial Day.... I'd hate to cancel my trip mad.gif

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.

      Starting a new thread for 2018 Pike River Hatchery progress. No new news today. Cliff

      Don't mean to pick a scab here, but the mods have asked for more engagement from members, so I'm trying. I've never been up to VNP, but am looking at camping on KAB in early June. Would be heading up from the Twin Cities. Neither my buddy or I have been up there before, and we would not be going if we didn't know ahead of time we had a campsite reserved.  Without that assurance we would just stay at one of our families cabins in the Brainerd Lakes area instead.

      The Pike River is almost wide open today! It will not be long now before they start the walleye netting! Cliff

      If I were you I’d run only what the manufacturer recommends. If it’s a Suzuki brand lube I’d only use that. For peace of mind and if anything were to happen you can say your were running the recomnded fluids. Also your local dealer should have everything you would need and can help you out if you have any questions. Not sure about the other fluids you mentioned but that’s what I would do if I were you. Good luck

      I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?

      Hi Guys - believe it or not I just realized there are all these great boat-in camping opportunities on Kab and other lakes. My buddy and I are looking at reserving a site in early June, and since we're so late to the game our options are fairly limited. I've read through this thread to get a little idea of what's what on Kab, and none of the ones mentioned are currently available the weekends we're looking at going . But it's good to know Moxie island is about 2 miles from the Visitor Center, which gives me a frame of reference for how far some of the other sites are. The ones that are available tend to be open a lot - and I'm not sure if it's because of their location or quality of the site. For what it's worth it would be 2 guys, using my buddies 17 ft boat, and ideally going after walleye. Are any of these sites ones you wouldn't send your worst enemy to? Cutover Island South K6
      Northland K24 - (this one is hardly ever booked)
      Windigo K35
      LaBounty's PT K14
      Grassy Island K9
      Peterson PT K25 (realize it would be better to use the Ash River launch for this location)

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run
