Ice Conditions?

Recommended Posts

Fish Slayer

Just wondering how the ice conditions are in the area? Are people still driving out with vehicles or is everyone switching to sleds and atv's?

saw lots of trucks out on Bemidji this weekend, I did not fish lake Bemidji, so I don't have an ice thickness for you. I have switched to ATV for the rest of the season! grin.gif

I was wondering how close to ice-out the Bemidji area lakes are? Don't you usually have a "guess the date" for ice-out, say on Lake Bemidji? Down here in Illinois we have been fishing open water since the 1st of March, and I always try to keep track of your ice out to maybe get a feel for conditions or stages the fish might be in when I come up in June. Thanks Guys

The average ice out on Lake Bemidji is April 26, i think last year it went out on April 24. The ice on Bemidji is still fishable right now if you know what you are doing and are not stupid aboot it.* I was out on the lake for a little while yesterday and did pretty well on the perch. Still aboot 28-30 inches of ice but the top 12 were honeycombed and the shorelines are getting very sloppy. Keep an eye on this website and it will let you know when ice out on bemidji is this year: http://climate.umn.edu/doc/ice_out/ice_out_status_07.htm

*Bobb-o is in no way responsible for your own actions on the ice, if you are not familiar with a body of water late in the season, do not make an attempt to fish it!

      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.

      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?
