It's time to liven up this forum and get something started.  Anyone been out checking ice depth or fishing?  It's been too quiet for a long time now...

Say I have to say I kind of feel like a jurk!!! I will sit back and troll what is going on but not really say anything.... But that being said we have all seen what happens when someone will post a good bite and watch out the flood gates open up... yes down hear in the southern part of the state not like we have huge lakes so a lot of us are pretty gun shy on what to say... Anyhow I was out on a lake down in the fairmont area just before thanksgiving and drilled a hole and had 3 1/2 inches, now since then we have gotten a warm up and rain then this past weekend we got anywhere from 9-11... So just saying may be sometime before we get out....

The forums used to be cool 5-10 years ago and people shared some, but yeah the last few years they have almost died when it comes to regional and lake information.  Even sharing information at the bait shop or tackle store has pretty much become taboo, its too bad sometimes as that was a good way to meet new people back in the day. 

 

This 40 degree weather and sunny this weekend will probably wreck any chance of good ice soon.  Not happy about that to be honest.

Been on Roberds and French recently. Roberds was a little slushy in places. Both seemed to have 6" of good ice, then a couple bad on top. Fine for walking.

So I drove by Madison Lake today and things looked pretty quiet out there. Only saw about a half dozen fish houses. Saw a couple cars on the ice. No snow anywhere. Anyone know how thick the ice is?

I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I bought a Striker snowmobile jacket and bibs at the Red Rock store up the Fernberg about 8 years ago. Really like them!

      I am trying to decide where to go fishing Sunday night?

      Daisy Bay today was much better today than 2 weeks ago, most of the slush pockets have firmed up.  Still a few around and off trail travel is a little to rough.  The staked trail is in good shape.

Ice fishen, truck rides in woods an just doing guy stuff. Really likes lil ice rink an learning how to be my left wing n take out a D Man. Fred Fred Bear enjoys his company 24/7 and true brother type pals. They are really tight as Fred Fred is a non stop wrestling foe and is teaching him the good an bad things he needs to know here Musky Acres to be a true Marauder. Be a fun spring when ice splits to introduce Max to the lake n island, boats, fishen an 4 sure dock jumping!!.   Mmmmm cooking Ribs, Chicken, made slaw, baked beans and cornbread for lil ice hackey tonight down the pond. Hounds agree with menu an everyone will grease out on the pak~ons an have fun. BURP! I always wanted to be Bobby Orr, my mind was willing but my A$$ never followed. At 63, legs need bit longer to adjust to what my mind is telling them to do, but its all fun.   Keep on rocken!   T

      I was out on the north end at the park last weekend. The ice was 15" measured. I drove out but the ice is heaved on the ramp itself making it difficult to get over. Even with a 4 wheel drive pickup I bottomed out. Panfishing  was Ok, kept a dozen of sunnies and crappies mixed.

      I ended up buying from Dennis Kirk. Likely will have to go by measurements though as I doubt the stock number will be found.

      My first suit was the Arctic Armor camo combo.  Loved the soft touch outer surface and the bibs were warm, but a little bulky.  Ended up really not liking the coat because it didn't have any options for ventilation under the arms or across the back.  I run hot and it didn't take much for me to sweat with that jacket and then end up being cold.    I sold that suit and made the switch to a Striker Climate coat and Hardwater bibs.  They've been fantastic.  Bibs are more comfortable and less bulky that the Arctic Armor bibs were.  Climate coat is a double win for me.  I wear the liner jacket most of the winter season as my daily winter coat.  The Climate shell has options for ventilation and has always been plenty warm enough for me without the liner as long as I properly layer for the temps.    Found a smoking deal on some camo pattern Striker bibs at the sport shop in Maple Lake this year that had less insulation that the Hardwater bibs, so I now have 2 options on bibs depending on temps.  Many of my friends and neighbors also took advantage of the sale in Maple Lake.  They might still have some options there, so could be worth a call.

      @ mistermojo   I doubt you can go wrong with any of the bigger name float suits out there.  They’ve come a long way since the first models hit the market.   Personally I’ve been extremely happy with anything Striker has put out.  The suits, hats, gloves, face masks, you name it.  All of their items are well thought out and very well constructed.  Pretty much everyone I know has gone to Striker for their first suits and have all been happy.
