Just got back from Mille Lacs. Slowly heading back to the landing about 300 yards out in front of Myr Mar I hit a pretty lengthy sheet of ice...scared the crap out of me and the pucker factor was with me until I stepped back on land but, the good news is the ice is wanting to take hold soon!

I'm missing something here....

A) You were out it a boat and hit ice coming back in?

B) You were on the ice and found some thin stuff when coming in?

Uncle... I believe the answer to your question is A. I experienced the same icing problem around Garrison tuesday night, she geled up around midnight and it wasn't even that cold(upper 20s maybe). Too bad because it made it impossible to troll in an area where we were picking up fish.

I've not been out when the weather is close to freezing temps - so now I'm going to pose another question....

If you went real slow - say idle speed, and
the ice was anywhere from nothing to say a 1/2 inch, wouldn't the boat plane up on top of it, and then break thru, allowing you to proceed toward shore?

Curious.....

UG,
Yes it busted right through the stuff but it was unsettling to say the least when it is black as coal because the clouds blocked the moon. Gets your adrenaline going though and then I was warm.

Cyb, I'm thinking Indian Point will be just fine tonight. I was working a shoreline stretch of water just a couple hundred yards off shore when it skimmed up on me, plus there was no wind. Garrison reef was fine tues night, so I think if your out in the main lake more you will be alright as long as there is at least a little wind. I would love to make it out there again too this evening.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
