Can anyone tell me how thick the ice is around McGregor/Lawler area. Thinking about going up north this weekend.

it all depends on what lakes your looking at. most small - medium size lakes have 2-5 inches with a couple around 4-6 inches. the bigger lakes are still very border line. most people....the smart ones at least....are still walking on all lakes. you will be able to fish, just check the ice and check it often

rscabin,
since sherrif is a small lake I would think the ice should be good, but then again, it is a very deep lake, and probally spring fed, so be carefull. what do you usually fish for on this lake? I have fished it only in summer, have marked many fish, but they were unwilling to bite. I am on fleming lake, which should be going this weekend, and I am expecting at least 8 inches of ice here.

knoppers my nieghbor has a place in Lawler. He was going up this weekend. I was thinking of going but something came up and did not make it. I was just wondering how thick the ice was. Ive been hereing scattered reports on different thickness's. It is probably going to be ready here in the south metro area by next weekend. Let me know how well you did. Maybe some time I can run in to you and say hi. Ever been in Jackson hole taveren in Lawler.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
