I believe there's a bait shop in Crookston that usually knows the ice conditions on Maple. Couldn't give you the name, but they often give reports in the Grand Forks Herald outdoors section.

I would guess the bait shop you are thinking of is Ceason's Bait. They should have the info you are looking for.

On the river Saturday, it was 10.5 inches where I was. Going down tomorrow afternoon, I'll post changes.

So did you get any information you'd like to post about Maple?

I just talked to the guy at ceason's about three bells he told me that the ice is 12 inches and fishing seems to be good for walleye, pike and crappie but i just wonder what the rain we have gotten and the warm weather the last few days has done to the ice not sure if i want to dreve my truck on the ice on sunday maybe just have to watch the vikings play and also how is the fishing going by the culvert going for the crappie?

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
