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.)

    • 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.
    • That should make things interesting
