Anyone know the ice conditions around Pine city? Cross lake in particular.

Dirt,

Welcome to FishingMinnesota.com.

I've heard it's OK. I'd be comfortable walking on it right now. I'd be a little hesitant about ATV travel. Just stay away from the river and you should be OK, but you probably knew that anyway.

Thanks bornofice, I was up there Sat. and checked it out. 5-6 inches where I was at. Fishing was excellent. Tons of ATV's and quite a few permanant houses out.

Hi DDawg, where do you fish on the lake in the winter usually? I own the lot where the snake river leaves the lake with the 30ft camper and have only ice fished the one time on Sat. Also I want to put a permanant house out next year, and I'm thinking that people don't usually drive out from the access straight across from me. What access do you suggest?

Hi Dirt
Theres 2 accesses we use one is on west side of lake its down airport road then to
rite where road turns to left. The other is
first left past the public access by the dam

Hope this makes sense to ya.

      Good bite in the East end this weekend.  No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat.  Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!

      Here a picture taken by Becky Nelson from Intl Falls facing north towards Fort Frances around 8pm...

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck
