Turkey Day Ice?

Recommended Posts

Ponds are iced over and the first 15-20 yards of several smaller lakes are frozen... I think it's a forgone conclusion that we'll be fishing by then on many northern lakes here, if not several days before (Grand Rapids area).

It was going dark on my travels from Little Falls to Crosslake but the only open water I saw was Big Trout tonight.  I’m sure much of the chain is open but quite a bit of water closed up this past week.

Then maybe my 1700 acre Itasca County lake will feel my wrath? 😄

 

*whoop whoop....escape from the in-laws time*

;)

 

So Duff, where in Itasca county? Lakes around the cabin in Itasca county, the 4 I looked at where all locked up. Just north of Bowstring

Right there by Riley's.  Hopefully they stay locked up and the wind and temps behave.

I heard a report today of guys pounding slab crappies through the ice near DL. This shallow pond is reported to have 4" of ice.

I have never been over there, which is a little surprising having been going to Jessie for 30 years.  I'll send up a Smurf blue smoke signal next time. ;)

I was down in the Twin Cities yesterday and saw two guys ice fishing on Lake Owasso off of Victoria and north of county road D. They were out in front of the  New Perspective Senior Living building.

Are you sure they just didn't escape the Memory Wing? 😲

From the lack of boats I see on the lake and at the access, you are not alone. I don't expect much out there these days, it's a good attitude to have. :)

I'm hoping for some perch, pike, and a tulibee or two next week.

    • Just a seasoning packet. Adjust the recipe as you see fit. A late summer batch with fresh sweet corn off of the cob works pretty well.     
    • I have a nice truck, but.... For 1 week a year there are things that I would like to change/add. Keyless start would go with keyless entry, like the new ranger boat, punch in your number and go. I can not turn off my lights on my gmc sierra. I install 12v electronics professionally but I wouldn't feel as comfortable cutting into wiring harnesses to add switches as I am tearing all wiring from a boat and doing it from scratch. I'm not trying to hide from the animals, I don't want people to know where my hunting spots are and chrome sticks out bad. I go farther and climb higher and sit longer than 95% of fellow hunters which is why I average 6.3 deer/year (legally) but people who know of my success will seek out my parking spot and return thinking that its the only good spot to hunt. Anyways... I was just trying to open up a friendly conversation about a perfect hunting rig to get people out of the political talk that HSO seems to be about. My best stand is walking distance from my house so all I need a truck for is to retrieve my bucks. Was hoping for something besides abrasive comments and criticism that seems to follow most of my posts. I'm sorry I will quietly read and keep my fingers away from the keyboard. I made it into the ALL TIME RECORD BOOK with a 172" typical public land giant when I drove a 2000 Chev Malibu 24k gold edition anyway. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful time. 
    • Check your throttle position sensor voltage. KOEO you should see .8 to 1.0 volts with the throttle closed.  
    • Spring officially arrived March 20 with the vernal equinox and temperatures leading into it were very spring like, bringing a close to much of the outdoor winter recreation across the state. Snowmobile trails now remain open in only a handful of northern counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR) and more are expected to close with warm weather this week. Many state parks and forests have discontinued ski trail grooming, so even if a spring snowstorm arrives most trails will not be groomed. Most mountain bike and horse trails are closed and will remain closed until they dry out. There is still up to 2 feet or more of snow in some northern counties, making it a great time to get out and explore on snowshoes, which are a must for trekking out in the woods.Flood waters were rampant last week in some areas of southern Wisconsin but many went down over the weekend. As of March 20, the Trempealeau River had dropped to minor flood stage and the Crawfish, Rock, Fox and Manitowoc rivers were expected to remain in moderate flood stage through next week. .
    • Just buy whatever truck you want and get started adding after market accessories, probably cheaper than buying all that stuff standard on a niche truck that will likely be really over priced due to it being a specialty item.  Most of that list could probably be doable fairly easily.  Personally I don't think half of that list is kind of pointless though.  If your non-camo truck with reflective chrome bumpers is giving you away to the animals you might want to get a bit further away from your truck when you're hunting.  If you're really struggling with loose ammo rolling all around the floor of your truck try leaving it in the box when its not in your gun. Key less entry might be nice but if you lose your key in the woods it will just give you a place to sit while you wait for someone to give you a ride home. Can't you already turn your lights/high beams off when your truck is running?
    • Most of that would be do-able by a small outfit (not 4 wheel steering).   Business opportunity for someone
    • Also got my bonus tag. Both tags bought and ready to rock in a couple months.  
    • Just scored my Zone 4 bonus tag.  Quick and easy.
    • Haven’t spotted any yet myself but I know it won’t be long before that changes. But I could use a ride on the moped! Gotta wait yet till the sweepers clear all the sand on the roads first. 
    • Saw a Red crotchrocket day before the last big storm. 🤪
