I cant take it anymore mad.gif I need to get my boat in the lake!! Work is driving me crazy and I keep seeing these guys on T.V. catching big largies and smallies. I know I could outfish these shmucks if only my favorite fishin' hole wasnt FROZEN SOLID.
I think I just have a bad case of cabin fever. grin.gif
Not much activity on this forum as of late.

So...
any educated guesses on when the Ice will go?

I am hoping for April 17th. shocked.gif

Personally, I like the ice and will hate to see it go but I can't golf with snow on the ground. It will be nice to get the boat out though and chase after those fish that way. I do have to say there are some really good bass lakes around the area although I don't target them much. Last year I got a bunch of dandy bass while fishing northern. All C & R, I don't eat bass in summer but they are a blast to catch. I didn't realize bass liked heavy sucker minnows but I think I caught more bass than northerns last year on them. Now that I think about it I guess I am getting cabin feaver also, I better go check the boat out, after I get back from some ice fishing!!!
Almost forgot, I think your pretty close on the ice out!!!

      Any fishing reports?   With this warmer weather, has anyone been out?   What are the ice conditions in the Bemidji area?

      Made the trip up from the cities to retrieve my boat in storage here at the cabin. Got out on the lake tonight for a bit on the snowmobile.  What a mess.  Slush and ponded water everywhere.  Ice depth was 26” on the staked trail and the ice came out in chunks not shavings when using the auger.  It’s definitely getting softer.  We had probably a foot more ice last year at this same time. Gonna be iced out early if this keeps up.  This trip is likely my last time on Lake V for the ice season, unless conditions become drastically colder for a prolonged period.

      None for me yet but I’ve pretty much just been going back and forth from work or been on 371.  Been looking anyway though.

      I know it's super early, but I'm heading to Birch lake this summer, actually twice, for the first time. My family and I are heading there in mid August, and the guys will be heading back for Labor Day.  We will be after primarily Pike and Walleye.  I can't seem to find a ton of fishing reports for this time of year.  Most of what I find is for Spring action.  We'll be staying at River Point Resort.  Any tips to put my girls on some fish would be GREATLY appreciated!

      Been seeing a lot near food lots and corn fields.   With the fields starting to open up turkeys, deer and pheasants have been hitting the freshly exposed ground.

      Big Dick's in Kelliher has a sign up for Shiners.  IDK if live or frozen.  Call Fred's Bait in Deer River 218-246-8710..  Good Luck.  Be Safe.
