First Ice Guess

6 posts in this topic

Hey were are getting closer. I thought it would be fun to guess when we will be able to venture out for the first time. With in 2 hours of the metro when do you think we will have fishable ice? My guess Nov 29th.

I'm thinking we'll get fair ice cover by Thanksgiving in the Annandale area unless the well below average temps turn around. At this rate we'll have skim ice in the morning.

You should take this topic to the ice fishing forum.

Been ice fishing on Lake Osakis many a times on the second week of deer gun season, so my guess with the way the weather has been so would be November 16th!!!

I'm a pessimist about stuff like this: December 5. I can't get out until Christmas time anyway, but that's alright, the walleyes are still biting here in Madison!

Earliest I have been walking on ice was Nov. 10th.

I'll give the 15th a shot. Water temp on the lake in my backyard is about 38 degrees.

Whew. Remembering last year when I had the boat out there on Dec. 6th.

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
