Fished 1.75" of ice today.

Recommended Posts

Went out and fished 5 lakes today. Only caught 2 crappies, and I'm thinking the lack of snow cover/fishing during the midday was the problem.

The last lake I fished only had 1.75" of ice, and whenever my buddy and I got too close together, the ice started to crack!

Sure was a fun time!

Why is this forum all messed up? Solid white background, and everything is misplaced? I'm confused.

I was on 3 the other day and the water was moving in the hole when I moved. I think I am going to give it another few days of good cold. I have experienced the same thing with firefox but have not had any problem with internet explorer.

Got out last night on a Chisago county lake. 3.5 inches of good ice. Fished from 5-11PM and ended up with a 15 and 27 inch walleye and a nice eye to the hole which resulted in a line snap. Don't think it was quite as big as the 27 incher, 2 guys.

Nice feeling when your first flag of the year is a 27 inch eye!!! The same was true of the same lake two years ago.

Going out again tonight.

Be careful going out tonight -- we're supposed to be in the low 40s today - gonna make a lot of that ice in our county much thinner.

After checking 2 lakes I made it out yesterday with 2 buddies. I was wearing my AA suit and had a rope with me and used my chisel to check the ice as I went. I did lose my chisel when I hit the ice that had snow on it, it went right through and I fell forward on my hands and knees. I displaced my weight and got back on the ice that had the frozen flood ice on it. My buddy said the ice bowed when I went down!

The spots that had no snow had 2" of solid ice with 1" of white ice. I did fish but I will not be going out again until we get more ice. This was a 40 acre lake that is very wind sheltered with a max depth of 16'. The snow is doing a great job of insulating the ice so be careful out there, but better yet, stay off the ice for now.

Forum is messed up in FireFox for me as well. I emailed the Admin to see if new code was released a couple days ago. Glad to hear it is not just me as I was getting frustrated by not being able to figure it out and not hearing issues from others.

Style sheets in IE are still working. Hopefully they get it fixed soon.

Made it out on a west metro lake tonight. 4 in of nice clear ice. Fished a protected bay and found slightly thicker ice pushed up tighter to shore in the back end of the bay.

Went out with the hopes of pannies and maybe a nord,never seen any of the above but did manage 4 walleyes that all together would not equal 1 keeper. Had 1 flag on a 6in sucker, but i snapped the mono leader just above the quick-strike rig. I guess my lazy butt should have changed out that mono also, serves me right. I do know better!

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
