Ice Conditions

Recommended Posts

How is the ice out there?? I just got back from Indian lake in Wright County. Ice was thicj but very slushy out there. The access was under water. Did not want to chance it so I drove around it. Lets keep with the up dates so we can all be safe out there.

Hopefully we get some warmer weather with rain and wind to help open up the lakes! I really need some open water fishing. grin.gif

Cliff,
What is the bite like on Vermillion in the spring? I've never tried that lake in March, how about an update? Any size to the crappies and panfish? Walleyes are still in season too, correct?

Ice conditions in the Bemidji area are looking good. Lots of thick clear ice. Depending on the rain and the warm weather, the ice can change fast so be careful. There is a ton of slush All the snow is melting, so taking your fish house off the lake can be a bit of a hassle, especially if there were three foot drifts around your house. I Friday afternoon, the water surrounding my house was over my ankles. Probably be a good idea to start wearing water boots.

Hi Ragnar,
The walleye season is closed on Vermilion until the May opener.
The crappies on Vermilion can be very nice size with many up to 2# fish. The major problem is finding them and also the fact that the bite is usualy a very early morning and late evening bite.
The west end of Vermilion in the Niles Bay and Black Bay areas are the most popular spots. Most fish are in 30' to 50' of water.
Cliff
PS. Are you the Mn. Vikings "RAGNAR" I met on Bass Lake a couple of years ago?

    • just saw it yesterday in Alex..darn good stuff too!!!
    • that is so great!!!!!  You folks are raising a good son!!!!  
    • Well I couldn’t make it over there yesterday, so my son went over today after school to tell her thank you but he’s going to take his stand down. After a 30 mins conversation with her, he now gained bow hunting, shotgun hunting and turkey season next spring. She told him that he has permission as does the other gentleman and don’t worry about it. This is where it gets good. Cole went out to his stand and guess who shows up asking what he’s doing. The other “kid”. Asking why he is back out there, Cole explained to him that he talked with the land owner and sees no reason why they both can’t be out there. The guy stormed off. So I called him a while ago.....yes the first 15 mins were not some of my best moments, but I finally was able to get to the bottom of his problem. He’s never shot a deer, he’s never shot anything and only took up hunting 3 years ago. Whoever has been “coaching” him has given him some very bad information. Told him things that I’ve never even heard of. So I told him not only will we help set you up, but we will move your stands into good spots, I will hang a double set if wanted and either myself or my son would be glad to sit with you and help walk you through the first time, video tape it and even offered to let him come sit in my ground blind on my field and get him a shot a doe any night. We are all meeting tomorrow night so i can go over some maps with him and show him where I would put my stands at if I were him. I told Him instead of running my son off who could a complete asset to him, learn from him. He might be only 15 but he’s a wealth of knowledge and loves everything about hunting, not just the killing part. He just wants to be in the woods and help others. Looks like a bad situation may turn into a good one.  I hope at some point this fall I can post a picture of my son guiding this gentleman to his first archery deer. 
    • Does anyone know of a place in the Brainerd Lakes area where you can rent a wheelhouse that you're able to tow yourself? I'm not referring to renting through a resort or guide, where you're restricted to the lake and spot they put the house on. I'm looking for one I can haul around. 
    • I did a search ans it seems a shortage happens once in a while. That search came from 2013 and it was the same problem. Hope it just a temporary thing because it makes such great toast.
    • I see it all the time at Cub. They had a big sale on it Sunday night - maybe they were trying to get rid of it.
