Can't wait any longer-TOMORROW!

Recommended Posts

I'm going to try a small south metro lake tomorrow. It's under 100 acres and under 15' deep. It's been iced over all week. Should be good, but I'll test frequently as I go. I'll give a report tomorrow unless I'm at the hospital or the bottom of the lake.

You guys think we've waited long enough, or am I crazy?

Been reports of a few people on lakes by me. We played hockey on the pond behind my house today and it has about 5 inches already.

I went out to a pond that I think the deepest is 10' in the south metro and it had around 3". Be careful I think most stuff down here needs a few more days. I'm hoping by next weekend I can make it out to the spot I want to get to.

Here's my report- There was 4" in shallow, but the ice got thinner as I proceeded out. Areas covered by snow had 2-2.5" and without snow had 2.5-3" it wasn't enough ice for me to feel comfortable, so i fished shallow, over 3" of ice in about 8 feet of water. I caught 2 crappies and missed 3 light biting fish in about an hour. I didn't move around much because I didn't want to risk being a cautionary tale. I'd suggest waiting a little longer. It was a little frightening.

I live on South Lindstrom lake, and I went walking my shoreline and could make the ice flows bow and spout little water funnels. I think I'll wait another week or two before I even consider stepping more than 2 feet away from shoreline.

This guy is going to wait a while longer. It was over 40 yesterday, and pretty darn warm out there right now. Another 4" of snow tomorrow....

My fishing partner was out yesterday, Reported 4" in shallower areas and 3" in deeper. He was approached by County Sheriff and a passing EMT to get off the ice as well as drive-by gawkers.

Was out on Demontreville yesterday. It's got bout 2-3inches in the bay. Hooked into a good pile of crappies! One was about 13 inches! couple pike too. Scary ice though it's very soft and changes thickness a lot.
