Ice Conditions On Rice

Recommended Posts

RiverRunner

Just wondering if anyone know how the ice conditions are on Rice. Think it's thick enough for a 4 wheeler? Thinking of hitting Rice on Thursday. I'll post our results. First time hitting this lake any tips, how deep,time,etc. Thanks in advance.

I think that with the last few days weather conditions most lakes around here are going to be pretty safe. Good luck.

I was out on Rice Mon.(12-20)night, walked out from Fishers resort... once you got about 30 yards from shore, there was some beautiful solid ice. About 7-8 inches I'd say, and with these cold days, I'd bet 11 inches by after christmas. A car drove along the shoreline, almost to the point, but he's looking for insurance $. smirk.gif We went towards the crappie hole, and set up, only 3 walleyes all night. Them fish must have known what was coming and headed for cover. (The weather I meant, not us) wink.gif Well, stay warm fellas and happy holidays... Donk out

I was also out on Rice on Monday. Went out of the south landing and fished the break. The ice was 6.5" thick were I was. One little doinker walleye and a perch.

Have a good Christmas everyone!

Went out on Rice today for the evening bite. Marked 6-10 "sniffers" No biters though. My first time on the lake. Plenty of people out fishing, between 50-75+ houses out. Anybody have any better luck than me?

Two of us were out their on the 23rd. Ended up catching 4 small walleyes and 3 perch. Nothing big enough to keep. Fishing in 18 F0W off the North Access, by the first point to the east.

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike
