Lots of fish 9-10 inches of ice, but they were small!

Were you somewhere relatively local? Been thinking about going out, but didn't know what to think of area ice yet.

I love it Royce it is sensitive enough for 3mm jigs and has back bone to land big fish.

I think ice thickness right now is more dependent on snow cover.  When it fell compared to ice being made on a certain lake and how much.  20 below for a day won’t cure the thin ice/slush blues with 10 inches of snow on the lake.  
 

Thanks for pics Nick!

Wanderer you know the lake I was on I am almost positive. It froze over in early November and people have been ice fishing it for a 3 weeks to a month now. Snow cover was about 6-7 inches and it’s a good thing it’s a short drag across the lake as this fat guy was huffing and puffing on the way back to the truck.
 

Be careful as the swans were thick and the have an open spot on the north side where the creek exits.

@monstermoose78,

 

If I had to guess, that’s the one I’d put my money on.  You seem to have that lakes number pretty good!

      This morning I found a solution. I had an old pair of cross country skis that I haven't used in 25 years. I got some 1" PVC pipe and made a frame and fastened it to the skis similar to the Smitty Sled design. Took about 1-1/2 hours to make it. Tried it out this afternoon and it worked great. 
    • Huntin&Fishin
      Paul, have you heard of any depths that have been working lately?
    • Wanderer
      I sure hope you have a fantastic trip!  Never done Trout myself in all the times I’ve been in the area.   I don’t want to sound like a Debbie Downer but have you heard anything about snow and slush conditions on Trout?  Hopefully it’s not as bad as the Big V reports but they are neighbors.

      The Whistle Binkies Warm Up to the Polar Plunge Ice Fishingcontest is this coming Feb 1st from 12:00 Noon – 4:00 P.M. at Whistle Binkies South in Rochester MN.

Half of the entry fee will be donated to Special Olympics with the rest paid out to the winners. Big fish pot is winner takes all. Contestants can weigh a total of 4 fish composed of any combination of crappie, sunfish or perch. Big fish pot is open to any legal species. Registration begins anytime after 10:00 A.M. in the main building or 11:00 on the ice at the far end of the lake – ask for Eric Korman.   Hoping to see you there! Whistle Binkies Event Website

      Ummm...hmmmmm... Minnesota offensive lineman Daniel Faalele is still learning football, but at 6'9" and 400 pounds...he's not undersized. If he is, I like that kind on the Gophers line.   Maybe PJ just likes over-achievers with a big motor because they can relate? Ya think!!! 🙂😁😎💜💛💜

      PJ Fleck was an undersized, over-achiever with a big motor. I think that he looks for the guys with the same qualities because they can relate.
    • SkunkedAgain
      Yup, it looks like my ATV is staying home until later this winter when everything settles down and I can get it back across the ice! Thanks for the reports everyone. You're making me wish for better lake access (and a snowmobile!).   Stay safe
