Bay of Quinte - Ice Conditions

1 post in this topic

Hello all. I am new to this forum. I am from Belleville, Ontario, Canada, and I fish the Bay of Quinte. Once the hardwater season comes, you can't get me off of the ice. If you have any questions anytime re ice conditions, etc., feel free to PM me or send an email. We began this year's hardwater season last Friday and were able to fish until about Sunday night. After that, the mild weather and rain had softened the ice too much. Currently we have a lot of open water with a couple of non-current areas having up to 4.5" of ice. I am currently out of town, but will be back out there again on Friday night or Saturday and will have some more details on the ice conditions then.

The main problem right now is that once these open areas freeze up, if we have any snow on the ice, you could be walking on 4-5" of hard ice and the next step be on a 1/2".

Be safe if you are coming to the Bay of Quinte.

Safety first, fish second...

Have a happy hardwater season.

Jeff

P.S. Here is what we are after... Bay of Quinte 32" Walleye (This one wasn't caught by me, it is Ryan, one of my fishing partners.)

    • Still best smoked, as they are an oily fish, too.
    • I am having the same issue with mine. I believe it's a gen 2 that's 2 years old but only been out 3 times now. Took it out last weekend for the first time this year and the hose was stiff and the fittings leaked. I contacted jiffy and they said it needed to go to a service center to be repaired. I called the service center and they would have to order the part anyway. I've tried finding the hose around town but everywhere is sold out. That's definitely going to put a damper on the nice weekend coming up. I'm really kicking myself for going with the propane and not an Ion. This auger was my first experience with jiffy after having and Eskimo and strikemaster. My strikemaster was the 3 blade that had some issues with bending the blades. I called them to find out if there was a replacement that I could buy and they ended up swapping it for free and this was after having it for 6-8 years. I'm very disappointed in the service from jiffy on a 2 year old auger with defective parts. 
    • For me Tullies have always been rather strong flavored. Always needed a lot of smoke to cover that up. 
    • Looking forward to the results of your experiment.
    • And now today is Wednesday.  So There.
    • a quick blurry shot and off they went. still trying to get them together in a good shot. maybe some day.  
    • I posted that several days ago, although if you know what interest rates will be doing over the next several years you have better ways to spend your time than posting here.    You would no longer have to work for a living for sure.     To refresh your memory, the 9.1 trillion that you and Rand Paul are so upset about would not increase the debt to GDP ratio, assuming a 5% growth in Nominal GDP, which would be 3% growth and 2% inflation.      Do you have a figure for acceptable level of Debt to GDP?  
    • Right.  Sometimes Obama wasn't Progressive enough.  Bernie was more your speed. 
    • This is America.  We have computers and printers.  You can print it and frame it and hang it on your wall.  Nothing stopping you.   In fact Costco will print it on Canvas for you.     Please, post a picture of your office with it framed on the wall.
