Iowa City-Coralville Ice Report

Recommended Posts

I drove around and checked a few ponds in Johnson County yesterday to see how much ice we had made. One place had over 2" right at shore, but that dropped off to 1.5" pretty quickly.

 

Everywhere else I looked had no more than an inch and half of good clear ice. If I were half the weight I am might have tried to fish on it, but as it is I wouldn't even think about it.

 

As of now there is still snow coming down here. We have maybe a couple inches, but that might still slow things down. Hopefully the deep freeze starting tomorrow gets through that snow and thickens things up.

It was a short ice season around Coralville and Cedar Rapids this year. :mad:

 

Rather than complain about it I will post a few pictures from some of the decent outings I had around here.

 

No trophies, but I caught plenty of nice bluegills out of ponds in the area, with a crappie thrown in here and there.

 

As for Lake Macbride, I never got out there after my first and only trip, as by most accounts the walleye bite through the ice was spotty at best.

    • The best way to tell if they opened is to look at the entrance and exit wound. If they did not open you would only have a bout a 1 inch hole. If it did expand pull the blades back and check the diameter. it should be larger than if they did not open
    • Ok, but your not getting by without final project walk through pictures!!  😨   It would also be nice to see-hear changes and improvements that you made on this one from your first one. 🙂
    • What was you're final cost on this project ? Might think about doing one myself.
    • Based on schedule I don't think you can say much about the gophers  yet. They were gifted a win against an FCS team. Barely beat Fresno St  in OT.  Had a close game against Georgia southern at home?   I get it they beat who they had scheduled, its a great start credit to them.  But it doesn't move the needle for me. Go get a win against Penn St or Iowa and then I might start buying what Fleck is selling.
    • I got the center cabinet door made up last night.  All of the cutting is officially done.  I have a little sanding to do and I will stain it and it will be completed.  He doesn't want carpet so that saves me some time and money.  The plan is to deliver it this Saturday when I go to get my deer stands ready for the season.
    • I even used root beer..  
    • I was pleasantly surprised that the gophers jumped up to #17. I of course wasn’t expected Boise State to lose to BYU. I also assumed that the Michigan bias would have prevented them from dropping in the rankings. The most recent bowl projection I could find was a couple weeks old, but it had the gophers in the outback bowl against Auburn.
    • I usually use soy sauce and lemon juice among other things in my marinade which usually does a good job of tenderizing. You can even use Coca Cola. 
    • Now ranked 17th! Look out Big Dave!
