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.

    • Yeah, the last couple of weeks have been pretty uneventful at my feeders. Then all of sudden today I was bombarded with multiple species!    I had 2 hen pheasants pecking around, then later the rooster showed up. There were robins everywhere. The blue jays are back to eating up the peanuts within minutes of me putting them out. I’ve actually been saving money the last couple weeks on sunflower chips, because the goldfinches disappeared. But today I had redpolls out there for the first time of the season. So I’ll have to start working some overtime to afford the food they go through! Have a lot more woodpeckers this winter than last year as well.
    • 🤣 man leech go chase some cottontails.   Man that was funny!
    • Yep mine are back as well other then the Cardinals and Blue Jay's yet.  
    • Hawg go to this site. It will help you id them.  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/    
    • It looks like you were using my cell phone to take those pics. I'm also surprised an old guy like you could stay up that late! Just kidding!
    • Thank you, looks like I have a ton of them and not the goldies, I'm kind of disappointed. There's quite a bit of difference, I must have been fooled by the yellow on the siskins. It's been a while since I had either. I'm still looking for my bird books to identify the others. It seems the older I get the better I get at hiding stuff from myself! Thanks again, Mark
    • not my pic but here is a winter goldie. pretty drab
    • pine siskins. look a lot like winter goldies just smaller
    • Eyeguy, do you have a picture of a winter goldfinch and a pine siskin? I'm not 100% sure I know the difference. Any idea what the birds are I posted about with the colored backs? Those are on the safflower seed heavy, not on the niger at all. I wish I had a lens to take a picture to show you.
