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?

      The forums used to be cool 5-10 years ago and people shared some, but yeah the last few years they have almost died when it comes to regional and lake information.  Even sharing information at the bait shop or tackle store has pretty much become taboo, its too bad sometimes as that was a good way to meet new people back in the day.    This 40 degree weather and sunny this weekend will probably wreck any chance of good ice soon.  Not happy about that to be honest.

      Say what you will but since ice fishing took off over 20 years ago several resort operators I know on Lotw have made out like bandits. Their business has almost quadrupled using the same cabins and adding some fish houses. I'm fully aware of what it takes to run these places.

      I have 5 Wild Game trail cameras and have had very good luck with them.  For the lower price they are a decent option.  I also have a Moultrie, Hunten, Wildview, Primos, and Bushnell.  My first 3 cameras ran on C-size batteries which were very expensive, so I replaced them with AA-battery cameras.

      Copied from the other side but still, congrats. 😊   10 years is a notable anniversary.  Congrats!    I was checking to see how many I recognized.  A fair amount.  Then I saw you did catch me.
