REAL EARLY ICE

Recommended Posts

wicky

Where is the best place to walk out from on early ice on the south end around the mouth of the river to Rocky Point?? How far do you walk out? What depth of water are the fish in usually?? Any help or answers would be helpful. What was the earliest day of last Dec. that someone walked out and where?? I am trying to plan a trip.<P>Thanks for your help!?!?!?!

I walk onto 4mile bay from the Wigwam. I also will walk out from Morris point lodge onto the mainlake, or down at the Graceton beach area. I'll fish pretty shallow in the afternoon/evening. <P>December....what, I can usually sneak on around Turkey day, carefully!<P>fiskyknut

Thanks for the reply. How thin of ice do you walk out on around turkey day? Is it just a morning and evening bit at this time or can you expect action all day? I am planing a trip for dec 10th this year hopefully the ice is ready by then.

Well Wicky I will walk on 3-4 inches of good clear ice at areas I've walked onto over the years. I am not reccomending anyone else just take off a walking though! I fish shallow late in the day so I don't have to walk as far! I'd guess there would be fish to be had out deeper during midday but that'd be a longer and iffier walk as the ice is usually thicker in closer. The early ice and the fall openwater season are about the only times I feel the best bite is early and late in the day, the rest of the year the fish kinda keep bankers hours! December 10 you should be good to go with atv/sled, last year if I remember right the resorts were pulling houses with Samurais right around the 8th or 9th.<P>Top right of the main LOTW forum page has an option box to 'show topics from.....', if you hilite show all topics and hit go you will be able to delve into the archives of this forum and see what was up with the ice and the fishing over the past few seasons during the early decemberish timeframe.<P>Lots of noncurrent info to ponder over!<P>Regards....fiskyknut

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
