How is the ice looking in the Grand Rapids area? I imagine smaller lakes should be freezing up. I assume no ice fishing Thanksgiving weekend. Any reports would be helpful. Thanks!

I will most definately be fishing over thanksgiving. I walked out 50 yards out on a small lake that I hit early ice and there was about 2 inches. It is suppose to be cold all week so that should make it plenty safe.

Alot of the small ponds have ice on them but I don't know how much. Some of them turned kinda dark with the sunshine yesterday but its supposed to drop to singal digits tomorrow nite. Rollz is braver than me, maybe cuz I'm gettin older & been thru the ice to many times. Know the water your going out on & rememeber- no ice is safe.

Any updates on Splithand lakes or any other lakes in the Rapids area? My dad came home for Thanksgiving so he has yet to give me a updated report on ice... Looking at going up 12/9 - 12/11

We were on a lake off of hwy 7 and it was open Thanksgiving day. Lots of wind and it was trying to freeze over but could not. The wind died down Thanksgiving night and it was froze over Friday Morning. I walked on the ice by shore but did not go out further.

      Shorelines are starting to open, do you see the wood ducks?

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
