Snow on the ice

Recommended Posts

Guest

Can any one tell me how deep the snow is on the ice? Can you drive anywhere on the lake or is the snow too deep and you have to stay on the plowed roads. Also do you have to pay to use the roads? We'll be fishing there Friday - Monday.

Despite what anyone will tell you, you have to pay me, and only me to use ANY road in North Dakota. grin.gif Just mail me a check today and I'll tell everyone you are good to go.

Snow is not a problem because it was warm today and collapsed any we had down. It is going to be colder the next couple of days so it will be no problem. Snow is not an issue this year.

Even Fords won't get stuck.

Thanks Kevin maybe we'll see you out on the ice. I'll be driving a green 4 door F150 w/a topper on it. Also there will more than likely be a big dumb sheephead tied to the hood.

P.S. Sheephead will pay you for the road pass

We got back yest, got out of there before the wind really started blowing, Fished on Friday and they had lock-jaw except for a 1.6 lb perch, on Sat. the weather went to heck so we rented a 10 hole shack out of the casino not thinking we would catch sh*t, we ended up with 6 nice perch and a 5.5lb and a 8.2 walleye too!! And a whole lotta beer and even the Dr. stopped by for a visit! We were really suprised to catch anything out there in 42 ft. of water! Best $75 we spent! Went out Sun to the same general area and ended up taking hom about 20 perch, bite didnt really start till around 2-3 0'clock and at 5 it was all over! Good luck when you go, and keep us posted on how you did, I'd go up again, but probably would wait 2-3 weeks later to go! ****, it's windy up there!! P.S. Nice meeting ya Kevin!!

Dirkato and sheephead had cameras down and saw a lot of fish. Big perch, big walleyes, big northerns.

Check-out the iceleaders state report for ND for my latest report or click on the report in this forum for my report.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker. 
    • What the.... didn't you just get that for x-mas?  A great read on pellet grills gents, call me cheap or old school but I'm still stuck on open pit and charcoal on the big rig. 
    • My slicer works well yet at 130 and it's not almost fully cooked.
    • Thanks for some of the tips. I will try it in the next couple of weeks when i have time. I have read to smoke till about 150 internal temp does it make a diffrence if it goes to 130 or 150?
    • that makes 2 of us. Not sure what the deal is but going back and looking at old posts its doing the same to those pics as well. and there were no issues with those prior.   maybe has to do with the site being down over the weekend and some changes were made? @Rick
    • Looks good to me rundrave.  Is it just me or my phone, but the pics are on roids and I need glasses to read what's typed all of a sudden...
    • I've done both wet and dry brines with much better results with the dry. As grainbelt stated you can mix up whatever sweetness you like. Here's a simple one but pretty good. Its ALL per pound of meat.   1- Tbsp of tenderquick  1.5 Tbsp brown sugar  1/4 tsp black pepper  1 tsp garlic powder ( optional) Mix all the spices together and coat the belly , depending on the size you might have to cut it in half,  this is when you do that and stuff em in two 2 gallon ziplocs.   You can add some maple syrup to the bags as well,flip them  every day for 6 or 7 days then rinse them off real well,  put them on a wire rack and place back in the fridge uncovered. Next day smoke , and like grainbelt said your target internal temp is around 130, let them cool off and wrap up in plastic wrap for the next day of slicing. It might sound a lot of steps but its not that bad, with great results!! Good luck.    
    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
