Woman Lake Time

Has anyone been out on this lake ? I would like to know the ice conditions and how there luck was. I will probably be out there this weekend. I want to drive my Jeep out there with the limited amount of snow, but early in the season there was a really bad pressure ridge out from the Access. Can anyone tell me if that is still there and have they tried to cross it ? There are places fairly close to the Access that can be good, but I like to be very mobile on whatever lake I fish so that I can put myself on nice action.

Yes that pressure ridge is still there. I was out last weekend. Email me hirte38 at netzero.com and we can compare notes etc. I will be up there this weekend as well. Joe

Looked to be a consistent 12 inches of good ice everywhere I was at last weekend, maybe more, I fished all over the main lake. But I didn't exactly take a tape measure to the ice since I was running around on a 4-wheeler and there was plenty of ice for that. There was very little snow on the ice as of last weekend. So with this cold snap there should be even more ice now.

I think all the walleye's swim south down the Boy River in the winter time. I can find them in the summer, but winter is really tough...

Sharp drops into the deepest holes until after dark, then move up the transtion in depth....! I am telling you, I can see my bright jig down the hole in 28 feet of water on a clear day inside my portable... Any noise or lots of movement and you can forget about it until after dark...

The deep holes will get you Jumbo Perch if you are on the ones with the right bottom composition. Takes work to find spots out there with all the structure, but when you do it is VERY Rewarding.

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
