ice fishing

Recommended Posts

Guest

With the weather changing to winter like conditions, it seems ice fishing might come early this year. Most hunters will be trading their shotguns for fishing rods. Hopefully we get a quick ice on, with a good 2 foot solid base.

I have been ready for ice fishing season for months. Let's go! This week has lows forcasted in the single digits. Next weekend we will probably have some fishable ice on some smaller ponds and lakes as long as we don't get any more snow. Be safe.

Is southeast ND froze up yet? Looking to come that way this weekend for one last duck hunt, but I am not sure we'll have open water. Thanks for the help!!

Things are getting crusty. Most sloughs are crusted over but some have open spots in the center yet.

Maybe a better time to field hunt corn stubble then slough hunt?

With deer gun season opening this weekend, be very cautious.

No antler hat camo advised Eh.

I fished Golden Lake yesterday about 35 ft from shore. Ice was about 4'-6" thick. I had a blast. Sad to see the warm up in the weather though.

Ventured onto the ice for the first time Friday. Kinda scary. Was about 3 inches. Decided too wait till there is a little more before I turn the ice into swiss cheese. Anybody been out?? Any reports??

I was out on the ice again on Sat and Sun. Did well on Sat but Sunday was pretty slow. Ice conditions were really good. There were a couple of other guys out also. Hopefully it doesn't get too warm this week. Next week we'll have some good cold weather. Good Luck.

Fished a small irrigation pond in Hillsboro, ND yesterday and iced well over 50 perch between my brother-in-law and myself. Kept a dozen that ran about 10". Had a blast and it was fun to be out. Ice was about 5 inches and no problems. We were about 50 feet from shore.

The weather is starting to get on my nerves. THought we would be drving out by now, not even close. The fish aren't exactly cooperating either.

Trying to get the girlfriend to enjoy ice fishing, does anyone know of a good bite close to Fargo? Thanks for the help in advance.

Thanks Rick,
I took her out to the Jamestown Res on Sat in the wind. We caught 3 walleyes lost a couple more and marked fish most of the time we were there. Hopefully its not like last year, when you could mark fish but struggle to catch them. I think that's more frustrating than not seeing any fish.

How about Lake Ashtabula north of Valley City? Used to head over there while we were going to college in Fargo.

Marine Man,
We went straight out from Smokeys in about 11 feet of water. The ice was between 6 and 8 inches. Most of it was really good clear ice.

Donny,
I was going to call you last Sunday and lost your number. Send me an email, I'm sure we get out on the ice together. I say once we can drive out, we'll have to go see how good the honey hole is. My GPS cordinates are on my graphs I sold with my boat.

I fished on Jamestown the past couple days and boy is it slow compaired to last year. Not much of a bite. There is getting pretty close to 12" of ice on the north end and I would think by next week they will probably be driving out up there.

    • It won’t take 5 years to change the signs, IMO.  2 tops and my money is on 1 more.  I did just get offered a club member deal on a “vintage” Cabela’s cap when I tied placing my order.  The thoughts that went through my head... 🙄   Yes, tried to place my order; use up the last of my points and move on.  Oops, system error, we can’t access your points at this time.  I can see em there, just can’t touch em.  OK, I’ll call back another time. 😤   Still can’t spend money there when I try...
    • I didn't think there ever was such a thing as too many shells! Just saying.
    • yeah, that lakeville FF has been going downhill.  Still, if I need some tackle or something, I'm more likely to go there than across the street.
    • I'm surprised by how much they have merged things together, like a single flyer for sales and whatnot.   I thought the usual way to do this was to maintain two separate brands, to provide the illusion of competition, even though it's really just one place.     I could give a rat's arse what they want to call it, just give me the best prices and put what I want on the shelf and I'll throw my money there if you call it Cabela's or Bass Pro.
    • Seen  the guy again yesterday & asked him if he was finding many & he replied that he thought they were just about done down here already.
    • I bet you're right about Cabelas. As for Fleet Farm, I've been really disappointed in the Lakeville location lately. Over the past year their prices have gone up, they are often out of the item I'm looking for, and they usually are understaffed at the checkout lines.  Perhaps it's just that one store, but I kinda doubt it. Hope they turn it around because I used to love FF and I'm starting to head to other stores now.
    • anybody miss Dozier or Escobar? lol   been a fun ride so far. Its going to be hard to sustain this pace and keep winning like this but I hope they can keep it up.
    • Ok.... So I have to admit that this is something that I have been somewhat fascinated with, but no absolutely nothing about. Here are my main questions... Is there a "Shroom Finding for Dummies" book or something similar that a pure novice myself can pick up? I have read a lot of posts on here that talk about "my spots".... Do morels typical come back the same place every year, or is it just because of the general climate conditions in that "spot" Follow on question.... If they come back the same exact spot, what sort of care is needed when harvesting? Cleaning and prepping.... what are the steps? I assume that it is different for each specific variety of mushroom? What sort of "season" are we looking at? Obviously based on facebook sales posts, the morels are ready now... how long does it last and what about the other varieties? Exactly how dangerous is it for me if I "think" it is one variety and ends up being harmful? Truthfully, this is one of the main items that has stopped me from taking a trek out into the woods. Thanks in advance for letting a newbie in on the trade secrets
    • They sure had the long ball working again yesterday with 8 HR's. They hit .326, had 37 extra base hits, & outscored the opponents 67-27 on the road trip.👍
    • I'm pumped that they are doing so well.  I actually enjoy watching the games and have already been to a game at the ballpark.  I might try to go to a few more.
