Anybody have an ice update?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how the ice is doing around the lake. With the cold calm night last night, some of the bays like Cove, Wahkon, Isle, etc. should be showing some sign of ice cover. Could someone verify this? Thanks.......

I just spoke with a gal at McQuoid’s who said that cove and walk out bays are starting to freeze up nicely. They are planning on pulling shacks out next Friday for anglers coming up Saturday and Sunday. If this weather stays cold, it looks like we will be fishing the Mille Lacs tournament. Unfortunately, this is the time when I start not being able to sleep at night.

Shacks out by Friday seems a little optimistic. It depends on what size shacks and where on the lake they're talking about. Hopefully they're right. Has anybody else been checking on the ice conditions?

I agree with you on the shacks but we should at least be able to walk out.

Terry McQuoid knows the lake extremely well. If he says he will be pulling shacks out by Friday, then you can bet he will be.

We will be fishing the IceLeaders Challenge Event on Mille Lacs this Saturday and Sunday.

We will know where the best spots to fish are located and we will let those who are in the Event in on the details.

We still have some openings. If you're interested in having a great time here is the link with more information on how to get in on it.

There is a 1/4 of an inch in Isle bay from shore to about a 1/2 mile out. There is a 1/4 of an inch that formed last night only on the shoreline in Twin Bay.. This was as of 12:00 noon today...

Does anyone have any reports on the ice conditions on the SW side? Say, Cove and out by Andersons and even out towards Spirit?

Thanks, I want to know if I have to kick it into high gear to get ready to pull out next weekend.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
