Ice on Poinsett?

8 posts in this topic

I would guess anywhere from 2-4" right now. Havent been there myself so I may be off, but thats about what most of the ice is looking like right now around the area.

Others are walking on some of the lakes but I will probably wait until the end of this week to get out after we see some colder temps.

I will be spending three days starting the 26th at the cabin on Poinsett. According to the resort owner today no one has even ventured out on to the lake yet. Where is everyone that is usually on Poinsett?

Getting on to the lake is very tough. Guys were getting stuck in the boat landings. I did hear they are catching a few walleyes on the west end of the lake.

ya...there has not been any houses on poinsette that i could see since the lake froze up...like ifishsd said, getting on the lake looks to be kinda tough unless you have a snowmobile or maybe an ATV.

it's been slow on poinsett, and tough getting around, did hear of some good action down by the state park, but overall pretty hit and miss, leaning toward the miss

    • Fortunately for country never does anything like this, minds it's own business and stays out of all foreign governments affairs
    • Apparently, some of the newer cell phones now have a GLONASS (Russian GPS) chip in them, as well as a U.S. GPS chip.  The GLONASS system has a reputation for working well in the northern hemisphere.   I'll probably just stick with my old hand-held Lowrance and topo maps, but the technology is out there for those who want to use it.     In 2007, Putin issued a Decree of the President of the Russian Federation, opening GLONASS up for unrestricted public use. This was an attempt to garner public and industry interest, and to challenge the homogeny of the American GPS system. By 2010, GLONASS achieved complete coverage of Russia’s territory. One year later, thanks to its orbital satellite constellation, it achieved global coverage. http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/glonass-gps-alternative-never-knew-existed/
    • Love the first amendment.  Also want consistency in application.  
    • Seen on the channel 5 news the other night, plans to remove a dam in River Falls. They didn't specify which dam, or if it would be both dams. The movement is gaining popularity, especially with residents. And more input meetings will be planned. However, if the project is ok'd, it doesn't sound like it will be in the near future. I'm all for the dam removal! Both of them!
    • Hey Dave, I am sorry to hear that. If you need anything you have my number.  Send me a PM or text and let me know whats going on. Recurring infection? Low blood supply?     
    • Yes. But he has a great plan to utilize the excess rail capacity in the country by relocating those who disagree with him. It's gonna be a real gas. 
    • 100% A-OK is how that's working out, but I'm not surprised by the continued confusion. Even beside Texas vs Johnson, the idea of stripping citizenship from people hasn't stood up in court.
    • You must have been on some sh*tty ice for it to do that... Love my heavy spud bar, if it doesn't go through in a couple wacks I feel pretty darn confident in stepping...Spud bar,picks,pfd,rope, common sense all ya need
