Guys, Planned a weekend to the lake 3 weeks ago, can't believe we still have to worry about ice. Driving 3 hours with my house and don't know where to go. My only local source fishes on the east side at 2 mile reef. Says fishing is good there. Gameplan: Be on the lake at 7:30 Sat morn and fish till noon Sun. Would like to catch some walleyes but get on a few perch during the midday hours. Don't know weather to fish the mud, rocks or gravel or go to where my buddy fishes. Need to be able to drive to the location or probably won't be going. (no atv) Any help would save the trip. Also, need a resort to give me info on a place to access any help. Thanks, Hoppe

Travel is still very limited for trucks and cars. The ice is the worse i have ever seen. You can drive on the main resort roads and thats about it. There are little 2-4 foot brakers everywhere. I would suggest calling ahead to the resorts and get access information. Then use the roads and set up where you can without crowding in on someone. The walleye bite has been fantastic. But coming up with the thought of driving to spots you want to fish just wont happen this year. It really sucks but with the way the fish have been biting i would still come up and fish.

I was driving my truck to our shack at 2 mile out in front of Liberty Beach this last weekend and the roads were ok. A little trouble near shore where they needed to redirect the road after some new cracks but the road was well marked and smooth. Actually saw some trucks driving to 3 mile. Didn't sleep well with all the ice cracking!
(fishing was great!)

      Been seeing the same thing on Big, piles of small fish (down to like 6 or 7 inch biters) during the sunset hour.  Starting to feel a bit like Ottertail out there! Flashers will keep you entertained anyway, marking fish pretty much non stop.

      No change from the weekend. We've barely been able to drop down to 20 for overnight lows this week. Not losing but definitely not gaining. 9-11 inches with a few spots still with a little less. We'll lose a fair amount of the 3 inches of lake snow over the next 2 days.

      This will be third year using the ice armor gloves, first year I used a pair of extreme mitts. They were nice and warm but hard to do any thing with them on. 2 years ago I recived a pair of extreme gloves and those are much better. Not as warm but a lot more movable and I can fish with them on. Last year I recived a pair of edge gloves. Those are really nice to, warm and I can easily fish with them on. I like having two pairs one I’m wearing and the other as backup.

      That sounds like me. All week I’ve been slowly dragging along, felling terrible. But I go fishing no matter how I feel.

      Had a plan to get out today with a good partner but he came down sick.  Still keeping the day off from work and catching up on gear maintenance and get a couple new set ups going.  Will get out this afternoon to check one of two lakes that were on my hit list last year I never made it to.  Tomorrow I might connect with a buddy in the Aitkin area.   Good luck All. 🙂

      Any update on ice thickness?
    • BobT
      The ice around here is extremely unpredictable; 12" here and 6" just a short distance away and even open water. I've seen vehicles out but unless you've checked the ice yourself along the entire path you plan to take, I wouldn't do it.

      I think there is a new Meatstick out for about $40.  I haven't seen them in person yet, so I can't tell you how good they are.

      I’m loading up the wheeler in the morning. I’ll throw the otter in the truck and planning on slaying the perch, gills, crappies and maybe pike. Should be a good day to test out the new auger mounts for the ATV. Planning to stay Mobil for a few hours then setup the hub and be comfortable. I’ve fished the lake I’m going to a few times this year already and have done well. Last time out there we had abou 7-1/4” ice so last I hear there was 10-11”. So should be plenty good for atv traffic as there’s zero snow on most lakes anymore.

      Awesome! Good luck! We saw some light portables being brought out by ATV last Friday on the N and W sides.
