Ice Fishing Season around Breezy Point

Recommended Posts

cmcclaine

I'm sure this will sound odd to you, I am not an ice fisher-person. I am researching for my husband. We are going to Breezy Point Mid-March and wondering how late in the year is it typically still safe/feasible to ice fish? We will be on Pelican Lake most likely and I know next to nothing about any of it. But we don't want to bring the fish house if they can't use it. Any help, anyone, please?

I would post in the Brainerd forum. They will be able to give you up to date ice conditions and fishing reports.

by then all you fish for for is pan fish

and with any luck it might be nice enough to fish out on the ice

plenty of ice but travel is tuff out there but there are quite a few roads plowed but to walleyes spots which will be closed by then

there are roads to crappie spots and it is also a short walk from breezy point to get to nice crappie and sunfish spots....march is a great time to be ice fishing as there is usually plenty of ice and alot of people have quit ice fishing since the walleye season is closed. Bring the ice fishing gear!!! and if they can't find anything on Pelican there are alot of lakes that are in the area to get to....North Long is also a good March lake out of the Merrifield side.....Good Luck

I think crappies and sunnies are about all they fish for anyway, so that should work for them. Thanks for all your help!!!

      What kind of childhood dreams do you have? Have you accomplished them? I have always wanted to ice fish from a snow fort. Well, my dream has come true. Its never to late to make your dreams come true. Be Awesome Outdoors.

      I recently met up with my buddy Al to check out a small lake that I had never fished before (Al had only open water fished it). We didn't get to the lake until after sundown and we immediately started drilling holes looking for fish. It didn't take us too long to find an area that the fish were frequenting. We caught a couple fish and set up the flipover. We wound up getting into some nice Crappies and to our surprise some really nice Sunfish. I would really like to get back to this lake soon to explore some new areas and learn it a bit more as it definitely has quality fish!

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!
