Ice Conditions on URL ???

Recommended Posts

biglars_23

I am headed up to URL on Thursday April 6th through sunday the 9th with a couple uncles of mine. Do you think the ice is ok on URL? Just planning on using 4 wheelers of course, probably going to go out of West Wind. Hoping to do as good as we have in past years. This is an annual family event now going up for one last bite. Thanks for the help...

biglars 23,

My family was up there last last Friday - Sunday.

We went out of West wind on Four wheelers.

We were out about 6 mile.

In general the ice is good, Keep a close eye out for dark ice spots. These areas are where the water ran down some old holes, some of these were big enough to drop a tire into and for sure it would shere it off.

We stayed just off the main road and had no problems.

If you are out there and it does get real warm during the day, you will find water pockets and lots of slushy areas on your way back in.

fishing report: crappies would slid through about 6pm till 7:30, fast as you could drop your line. biggest average size I have ever seen smallest not being less than 14"

And Walleyes!!! nothing smaller than 16" largest being a 26 3/4 and lots of numbers.

It is sad when one gets bored with catching walleyes.

Have a great trip

BTU
