ice friday night?

Recommended Posts

How much ice do all you think will form in the lakes and slough areas in south central MN with a low of 18-20 degrees friday night Saturday morning? Plan on doing some scouting to find some bird on water tomorrow night, I just want to figure out how much a pain it is going to be com moring with the ice! I have a 14 ft. jon and a trolling motor so I don't have much to work with!

delta, I wouldn't worry about too much ice I'm sure that smaller ponds and potholes will have a thin layer on them but if you're hunting a bigger body of water, or something a little deeper you should be fine. I'll be doing some scouting today for tomorrow mornings hunt. good luck!

All the small holes and some of the lakes were getting iced up on the last cold snap.. its not going to take much to put some ice on many lakes.

If it gets into the teens, toss a coin if its a bigger shallow body of water, and I would guess the potholes to get a significant amount of ice overnight (up to 1/2").

Some might depend on how mch the potholes warmed up during the really warm weather we had.. we might get lucky for a night only to find a skim coat.. a couple nights of cold and we got trouble.

I think that they might get a little ice in the area's protected from the wind. Sounds like the winds are suppose to stay up for most of the night!!!

That sounds like a great idea. All you would need to do is get about fifty feet of wire, with a switch. I think you can pick up a switch at any car parts store. Then connect one wire to the battery and the other to the wire that usually connects to the battery. That is brilliant!! Great Idea. I bet you could do it for under twenty bucks!!! And the best thing, that would be perfectly legal!!!

I think Jimmy from Cottage Grove meant to reply to the Robo Duck thread.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
