momma insisted on heading out to Dino's for there sunday brunch, so of course that meant a drive past the lakes. the ice is starting to turn dark. noone at the river access and becker looked abondoned, so did horseshoe for that matter. there where a few out from the landing on eden lake, but there were 4 trucks out on cedar island..just where the lake opens up. there goofy!!!
there was 1 small vehicle out on long and a few wheelers on the south end but noone out by the island by cozy's. browns had some wheelers out.
i figured it be close to go time for you!!!! and with global warming you might just get to ice fish 1 month a year soon!!!!!!!🤣
me...i'm leaving wednesday morning for the northland!!!!!!🤭🤫 got 4-5 maybe 6 different lakes on my hit list!!!!!!👍 then i think i'll call it a hard water season!
The 30.20 barometer probably didn’t help much. But it also might be worth trying shallower?
10 feet seemed to be good in the past week on a few lakes and have read here that even shallower has been doing well for some.
I went out of the Federal Dam landing yesterday on Gull. It was in good shape and we had 22 inches of ice where we fished. I thought about going out again this afternoon but wind gusts to 25 don’t thrill me on bigger lakes with no real snow cover.
I’ve only fished Kab once but I can imagine it behaves a lot like other shield lakes. Try to spend time near current and use large baits; either live or artificial. I’d never go pike fishing in that area without some F18 Rapalas. The good old Original Floater in silver/black back being a top color choice.
It's just about go time smurf 😀 I didn't wish for this weather but there won't b any complaints about it for sure. Been a great ice season but honestly ready for it to be over. I plan on picking up the boat soon getting it ready and doing a little pool 4 fishing and maybe a rainy river run yet. Probably got a couple ice outings left next week maybe some last minute runs to ottertail county. Had a epic day with some buds today locally, fish were right under the ice was a blast 👍
