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.)

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
