Mille lacs ice

Recommended Posts

For all you guys wondering about the ice here you go.  Just came down 169 and the ice starts about two or three miles N of the old Boat  Harbor,  now Gregorys.  North end looks ice free looking out from Garrision.  However ice sheet goes out of sight E from where the sheet starts. All the major bays on the W side are locked up tight. Its a NE wind so its not moving.  Don't think there is any chance to fish the W side other than up by Garrision.  Don't know if E side is open or not.  Boys it looks tough.!

all the cameras on the east side are open water except agate bay which is stuck on April 28...what a show it will be if a bunch of brave souls hit the water and the wind shifts and moves that sheet of ice!  I can just picture the sheet moving and a line of people trying to trailer their boats as fast as possible!  (I know that is a very unlikely situation but...):D

      Glad to hear that construction is starting, thanks for the updates!   Would be cool to get a periodic picture or two of the construction over time for those who happen to swing through Cook and stop by. Appreciate the info.

      Ice on the majority of lakes on the Iron Rage excluding big water and the mine pits.  I did see someone out today in a hub shelter on a smaller lake.  I'm shooting for a Red Lake trip Sunday if not I'll be fishing smaller waters around Grand Rapids

      On the south end...  Most open water anglers put away the boats and are looking forward to ice fishing.  Ice forming on back bays and on different parts of the big lake.  With the cold snap, things are coming along nicely.  When the time is right, resorts will communicate when initial ice accesses will be available.  That time is not yet, but it won't be too long!  On the Rainy River...   A few anglers out braving the elements with good success, but for the most part, anglers have boats put away for the year.  Some anglers fished last week with decent success and some big walleyes.  With increased current this fall, river ice will be suspect.  Back bays iced up. Up at the NW Angle...  Ice is forming throughout the Angle.  Some reports around the inlet of 3 inches of ice, but no ice travel is recommended.  Most bays and some areas throughout islands iced up.  NW Angle resorts will communicate when ice fishing begins.

      Heard a rumor that someone went through the ice on Skogman.  Anyone know for sure?

      Cripes, I better get the boat out one last time this week.  Although I'm sure the river will be open for a few more weeks.
