WBL ice updates?

Recommended Posts

TurnUpTheFishing

I know it might be silly asking this now but better safe than sorry. I want to hit a some spots on WBL near the deep hole towards the mahtomedi side and was curious if guys are driving in that area? I have a Ranger pickup. Ive driven out on many lakes just not sure if there is any spots I should avoid on WB.

My bro in law is a cop and said he heard that a vehicle went in WBL a week or so ago. Does anyone know where this may have happened?

I was out near a shantytown in the north end tonight, plenty of good ice - I would guess 18-20 inches. Follow the established tracks if you are nervous and you'll be fine.

Listen to MN Greenheads and stay away from the narrows.

Fished from about 2:30 - 6:30. Got skunked. Marked some little fish on the bottom but couldn't get them hooked. I think they were tiny tiny little perch and would occasionally peck at the ratso I was offering them. Something big pulled down my GF's great big rainbow minnow, she set the hook and felt nothing. Minnow was gone mad

There was a Jeep in the ice a few weeks back. It was close to Ordway bar far on the north end of it, away from all the houses set up now. I believe the DNR flagged section of water as thin ice down that way. I saw it the vehicle halfway in the ice, the next day it was gone.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.

      Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.
