Can you still get a boat out or all the bays iced up?

All of the small bays are iced over.

A few have been going out from KcKinley Park landing, but still have to break some ice, and the landing ramp is very icy!

Cliff, are the smaller lakes frozen up as well?

I currently have nobody in your kneck of the woods sending in ice reports. If anybody is interested in giving vermilion or any other lake in the area I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

airjer,

I have not checked the smaller lakes, but have to assume that they are iced over. NOT SAFE though!!

I have been driving by several small lakes on the way to deer hunting spots. Some of them have a very light skim of ice others are still open with just the bays skimmed over

5 degrees this morning froze the lake solid.

But will it open back up ?

This has been a very strange year for ice. Black Bay has been trying to freeze up for about 3 weeks now. The ice is still very unsafe. Normally, by the time the main lake skims over as it did this Sunday, Black Bay is very solid. There was only skim ice in some areas of the Partridge River Narrows yesterday afternoon. Be careful!!!

It is supposed to get into the mid 40's to low 50's the next couple of days so most of the ice that we have here will be gone or weakened badly. frown.gif

Great news Adam!

Hope it stays cold enough to make a couple more inches of ice!

Well just to update everyone again. Out in front of Shamrock we have 3-4 inches of ice. However, down at the end of bradley road. There is no even 2 inches. Was gonna try to sneak out there to see if anything was biting but not enough there yet. With these temps this week I will probably be fishin off fectos by this weekend. Can't wait.

If this weather would make up its mind it would help. Maybe I should just keep saying I am going hunting or something. That would probably do the trick!!!

Cliff, When we were up last weekend in front of our place the shoreline was still open, and out front of that there was only about an inch of ice. If you go out needless to say you be careful. Even "Aqua Man" would have a tough time with the current water temps. Thanks again for the food. Will have the steaks this weekend. Later, Darrell.

According to the weather channel for Cook\Tower: After today, the temps won't get above freezing for at least the next 10 days with lows in the single digits on most nights. It won't be long now!

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.
    • brrrr
      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
