one of my buddies went to go check the ice today and said there was about 3 inches of ice and he said it would probably be fishable by next weekend if it stay cold out... im guessing probably by the middle of the week it should be fishable i went out on white bear lake 12-1 and there was a shack out there im guessing the ice out there was any from 3 to 5 inches

Drove by Bald Eagle Sunday. Nobody out there fishing. Did see some people trying to retrieve a snowmobile that went thru near shore on the southeast side. Let's wait a few more days.

Yea that 3 inches is just right at shore. It might be another few days until any fishing is going on Beagle.

Just checked Bald Eagle, about 3 1/2" 10 feet from the launch and 1 1/2" 100 yards out. Will most likely wait until Sat to go out with no worries.

I walked out and talked to a couple of guys drilling there. I saw maybe 5". The first inch or so was milky and then nice and clear.

WBL only has ice in that one little area because that is the ice that was blown in from all the winds we had. Do not go out past that little area by the VFW because it will be alot less ice. All the area lakes have about 1-1.5" past 25-50ft from shore. With all this cold weather you would think we would be making ice, but for some reason it is having a hard time getting started.

I drove by Bald Eagle on the way home from work. 2 portables in the southwest corner out about 100 yards. Also, 2-3 out at the tip of the reeds to the right of the access.

      Very low, probably 2 feet lower than last year at ice out.

      what do they look like this spring?

      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

      👍. What was the water temp in Black Bay? Thanks....
    • Brianf.
      No, that wasn't me.  I drive a 621 Ranger.

      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.
