Ice Report App using gps really nice

Recommended Posts

Hey all, 

Someone sent me a link to this app at the beginning of the season and I doubted it's usefulness due to small number of downloads but after checking it out today it actually has reports for most of the area lakes. If some of us start using it each time we go out it would be super helpful to those that don't know local ice safety. 

 

 

Here are the links:

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.icereportsoftware.icereport&hl=en

iPhone: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/ice-report/id1084838757?mt=8

 

Just think how nice it would be if everyone pulled up the app and made an ice report even in one spot on the lake. I found more reports on the app then on our ice reports thread.

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update

      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
