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!!!

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂

      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
