Ice out date?

Recommended Posts

Benfishin

I know it is freezing out but I'm curious on when people think ice out will be on the pond. Just think, last year the ice was almost out by now. What a difference a year makes. Any chance it won't be off for the opener? I say May 1st.

Just looked it up.......average is April 24th, latest has been May 7th. Also looked up the 30 day forecast on accuweather, which ultimately is good for squat, but looks like spring is finally going to arrive next week and comparatively balmy(50's/60's) the first week in april. So for humors sake I will say april 27th.

I am starting to think my May 1 date may be in jeopardy with this weather report! May have to break out the ice gear again for opener.

We have not lost any ice as of today guys, still on the average 38 inches, more in some spots.

I'm thinking we are looking around May 1st ish for ice out.

      good tips guys. indeed a good idea to bring some meat along. I find myself using it less and less but good to have in the pocket.

      I rarely use live bait anymore unless I'm gonna use 2 rods.  Plastics, gulp,  tied tungsten flies, jigging raps,  rippin raps, darters... the list goes on.  There has been a few times though that a minnow head on a spoon out produced anything I had.  Good thing I had a buddy who borrowed me a few. 😉
