What's the latest Ice report? I called Frankies yesterday afternoon and was told there were guys out on South Center and the backside of Green. It's gotta be making some ice at night. And I still havn't seen the real warm temps they were talking about.
Thanks guys...I'll let you know when I get out.

My friend took a tour around some of the lakes this morning. He said there were a couple guys in the chisago lake channel...and a few houses out by the island on south center. He also checked Forest Lake...but no one was around there. Just wanted to let you guys know.

Thanks gentlemen...I would guess we'll have some detailed ice reports after this weekend.
Good luck if you get out.

Went out to a few lakes in the chisago area today and found pretty good ice on S. Center in the back bays on the north side 4+in. and hit a smaller lake that had 4 1/2 to 5 1/2. The crappies were going pretty good today when you found them, but S. Center the crappies were fairly shallow and the other lake they were in the deepest part of the lake. All in all I got my first fish dinner of the ice fishing season. Chisago Channel, Green, Little Green, Little Sunrise, N. Center, S. Center, Clear, Peltier, and Bald Eagle all had people on them today. Hope this wheather tommorow doesn't affect the ice to much. Rain Rain go away, let snow instead today.

People are out on Forest Lake. Ice is about 4". They are in the narrows between 2-3 lakes...also to the west of willow point...and east of willow point in the hole. Many guys in the chisago channel as well. Few guys on little comfort lake.

Was out on south center sat. I want to tell everyone to be careful! the ice even though it looks good is still kinda sketchy in spots. There was 5 inches where we were fishing by pancake island. Fishing was pretty good as well.

Just got back from Chisago channel and did okay. Five keeper crappie and a eater walleye. Lots of people out there, but seemed a little slow compared to what everyone has been saying.

About 3-5 inches of ice on the channel between Chisago and South Lindstrom. Ice is solid across and you can roam around the channel all over. A lot of crappies and gills in there but you have to search for the larger ones. Some bass as well.

Good Fishin,
Matt

I havn't heard anything on Sunrise yet. I'll probably check it out this weekend. How about the So. Linstrom Beach...has anyone been fishing that? Last weekend, I did not see anyone out there...just guys in the channel. Channel was decent for me on Sunday afternoon. Few small crappies, two nice bass, and two 15" walleyes around 4:30pm in 16.5 f.o.w.
Thanks.

To correct/update one of the above posts, toward the Chisago end of the channel there has not been three to five inches of ice. It has been more like 1.5 to maybe 2 inches in a lot of areas I have been on thru yesterday. Of course we are getting some colder weather now, but there is certainly not an "all clear" for the channel yet.

I was wondering about the ice conditions on Green Lake, (Chisago). I was on Little Elk last weekend and there was just about 6 inches of ice. Wondering if people are venturing out to deeper water?

      Down to 38 in Wake Em Up Narrows this afternoon...when we pulled the plug early in favor of sanity.  Did manage a 27.75”er this morning among a couple of others for our Herculean efforts. ha

      I caught a skinny 33 inch walleye out of red lake back during the crappie boom. I will get the photo as it hit a big airplane jig. I want to get a pike jigging.

      City of Virginia is mandating conversions from steam to gas so all the contractors in town are swamped. Couple more local options Martys heating Malmstrom

      That makes sense.......I think eventually upper red could turn out some 10lb fish. I pretty much figured this was a joke.

      Kelly come on....I live by the Iowa Great Lakes.......and can say the exact same thing you posted. While people may not directly make money from them....money is being spent and brought into the county which was not generated in the county helping the county and people in the county.    I get the "trash issue " no matter what is done people will litter. It will never stop. It needs to be managed, the situation isn't unquie to Upper Red, it's just not managed at upper red like it should be.

      What you are forgetting about is that a very, very small percentage of the people living in Beltrami County make any money from the fishermen on URL. Many of the people making money off the fishermen on URL do not even live in Beltrami County. But ALL residents of Beltrami County have to pay to clean up the garbage left by the fishermen. If a person owns property on the shore of URL how do you suppose they feel about having to continually be picking garbage up off from the beach? If a person lives 10 miles from URL how do you suppose they feel about having to pick up the garbage from the highway ditch in front of their home?

      I never go to the south shore so I'm definitely not an expert but I think this is some type of "contest" where you draw a piece of paper out of a bowl or something like that and the "weight" of your "fish" is written on the paper. A few years back there were Illegal northerns listed in one of JR's "contests" and the CO's looked into it and found that it was just some type drawing.

      The problem is they still need some ballast water on the Great lakes "When the winds of November come early..........."  😉
