Last friday it was wide open in front of my buddies cabin. Any body driven by and seen if it is locked up yet? Any body creeping out onto the ice in the area. Heading up the Dec 9th to give it a shot.

Thanks for any info.

I have sent an e-mail. I bet your thinking that this is the lake where a couple of the big gals came from.

Shoot me a reply when you have a free moment.

Caster...Although I am not sure on the status of Webb, I do know that some of the lakes in the area finally froze yesterday. It's been cold and not much wind so I am guessing you will be fine by the 9th. I fished it once last year out on the humps by the access, got 10 real nice snakes mad.gif But no eyes. I plan on fishing it once or twice this year(baby due in Jan. so my fishing time goes down) If anyone wants to help a guy out on where to look on this lake,drop me a e-mail. I just moved into the area last year so I still don't know the local lakes.

Be safe!

Any reports off Webb? Not looking for specifics just what and if they are bitin'. I've never ice fished it , but we have owned a cabin up there since the 80's. It's not very well heated so usually my last visit of the season is deer hunting. Just wondering if its worth it.

Well I thought that I would bring this post back to life. Going to be on Webb Lake this weekend. Curious on the ice conditions and the amount of snow on the lake.

Thanks for the info.

ice conditions are OK unless we get more of this wet snow. Still 16 to 18 inches of ice on most lakes up here haven't been out since the 28th but will be going out Wed evening depending on snow.

      I might have missed a guess, but here are the ones that I noted:   JerkinLips – March 27th, then April 7th Brianf. – March 28th Bobberwatcher – April…. MikeG3Boat – April 10th SkunkedAgain – early April, then April 21st   Definitely a tough year for guesses, as it seemed to be a no-brainer early ice out. Then it got cold and snowed again.

      MN DNR posted April 13 as Ice out date for Vermilion

      No, that wasn't me.  I drive a 621 Ranger.

      So, that was you in the camo lund? I'm bummed, I have to head back to the cities tomorrow for a few days, then back up for at least a few weeks. Got the dock in and fired up to get out chasing some crappies till opener!

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.        
    • smurfy

    • CigarGuy
