Crack outside of cove

Recommended Posts

word has it a very large crack opened up somewhere outside cove bay! So far it has kept my shack on shore. Be careful out there! Anyone happen across it this weekend? Once again, be safe out there this year, go slow and check with your resort.

It had waves on it today, it is bad news. I guess KJ's has shack stranded on the other side of it. There may be no access to deep water from Cove at all this year. frown

Yeah - I crossed the pressure ridge no problem on my way to the 4 mile gravel on Saturday morning, but when I returned it was very wet, with wind-blown snow hiding the true nature of the crack & a couple of orange sawhorses telling me something was up. I decided to turn around and head back to the Brandt's road. Worth the $10 it sounds like. smile

Good to hear some of you guys on the south side have a few cracks to cross. Those of us who usually fish the northwest side are glad to share one with you. smile

I talked to amber from Wilderness Warmth and she said the crack is behind there houses and the are good to go. Their main road is out of Cove bay .

Unless it's changed dramatically since Friday, you should be just fine getting to Spirit Island, there's even a road out there. The crack is further out and a little more to the East.

We found some nice perch in that area, but Friday was a little cold for hole hopping without them freezing over, and I kind of think we would have done better if we could have bounced around more.

Call wilderness warmth, they will give you up to date info. It's my understanding it's a nasty crack and they can't get their houses to spirit.

it is a bad crack that starts somewhere out by the point and goes past kj's houses. only way to spirit is from brants. wilderness's road was cut off, i bet there are glad that they didn't pull any houses out to kings yet. i followed it for a ways and didn't see anywhere it could be bridged or crossed with a atv. somebody with a sled and some guts might find a place to cross. cars and trucks are sol

Looks like this crack will prevent my shack from seeing a walleye this year. I don't think WW will get past it. I guess I wil have to learn to eat pike................

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!
    • Wanderer
      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.

      Here's some throw back for yea. Lets your candy azzz E-cutter battery do this!  🤣

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆

      Still waiting for global warming to ditch my Lazer Mag, always in the truck for thick, virgin ice.    Don't know if it's possible, or advisable, but thought I would throw a 8" K drill bit on it to lighten it up. Should be an adapter for such a conversion. Careful what you wish for, probably rip my arm off with a shredding combo like that 😂

      Leech I still have my old jiffy gas auger mainly for sentimental reasons. I haven’t used it for 3 years now. The only time I start it up is in the garage just to hear that pop pop pop sound lol   I will never go back and have no regrets going electric. Huge weight saver and with an extension will go through any thickness of ice. Starts first pull every time lol    we were fishing 2 weeks ago Swiss cheesing a slough here in SD on 4” of ice when someone else tried to fire up their gas auger and my buddies and I looked at each other almost in disbelief that someone was still using a gas auger.   pros and cons for sure but I think electric has more pros than cons with advancements lately     
    • smurfy
      any ice thickness reports..........especially on smaller not heavily fished lakes???????   chances are i wont be up till after christmas anyway, but............
    • leech~~
      Let me know when you go again.  I'll being my crossbow and take out the Deer when you kick them up!  😁
