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

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!

      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
