You will have ice in March, depending on where you are. Big Dry arm, [PoorWordUsage] creek and the more protected areas will hold well into March

Contact the folks at [PoorWordUsage] Creek Marina for more advice. Keedp tabs here and we will keep you posted

Hey all!! I have never fished Ennis Lake during the winter, but was hoping to determine if anyone else has. Am I correct that the place to fish is near the northeast part of the lake where the bridge is?

I was out on Ennis Lake two weekends ago (November 29th) and the lake was pretty much iced over with the exception of a few pockets of open water. Probably about 1 1/2 - 2 inches of ice. Definitely not safe, even for a Minnesotan. smile

Anyway, if any of you are familiar with ice fishing Ennis Lake it would be great to hear of your success.

Is Hel Creek muddy during March because it's closer to the river part of the Ft.Peck? I've heard Big Dry Arm is very clear and a sandy bottom. Hel Creek has some huge fish on their HSOforum from last winter so I'm thinking the fish are there.

How far is it from town to the Big Dry Arm? Where in the Big Dry Arm can you get on the ice? Anyone know how deep the water is in either of those areas?

    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
