NW Wis ice this weekend?

Recommended Posts

Hey all:

Well, a few of you inland from the big lake have found some ice just safe enough to fish on.

Please, as the weekend approaches, post your ice reports here. Partly, it's good for everyone. Partly, I'm being selfish, because if I don't get out this weekend I can't get out until the weekend after Thanksgiving, and then only one of the two days. frown.gif

So, all ice updates needed. And any ice updates from NW Wis. will be especially appreciated. grin.gif

We are getting some snow. Not much though. Light snow this morning, and the forecast calls for intermittent snow through the weekend, with no real estimate on how much. Lows have been in the 20s, highs in 40s, but lows are supposed to drop into the teens by Thursday/Friday and the single digits over the weekend, with highs below or just above freezing. That's all by the big lake in Superior, though, could be colder inland.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Perch boy,
Don't even bother with owen, it's the last to freeze out of all the lakes around there because it's so deep. Namakagon might be ready. What about Nelson Lake, anybody heard how much ice is on it?

Set the Hook!!

Stinger and all:

Just got a report off Nelson (Sawyer County near Hayward) this morning. A bit over 2 inches of ice as of Thursday, only half an inch of snow on the ice, so they're making a little ice each night with lows in the teens, expecting three solid inches by Sunday.

Guys are fishing right off the bottom in the shallow bays in about 4 - 5 feet of water on the shallow shelf before it drops to 10. They're in water shallow enough so if anyone goes through, it won't be over their heads. No one's venturing out yet to the deeper river channel. They're catching crappies and pike, but if anyone's bringing in walleyes, they're not bragging about it.

So Nelson's a possibility, and a certainty for Thanksgiving weekend. Supposed to get lows in the single digits next week with highs in the 20s.

Well, fished on Saturday, while all the rest of Wisconsin was banging away at deer.

There were three solid inches of ice on the northwest side of Nelson in NW Wisconsin, and the combined 500 pounds of Northlander and I, plus probably 40 pounds of tow sled and gear, didn't faze the ice a bit.

Fishing wasn't much good. We fished tip-ups and jigging near the 35-foot hole, fished in 20 feet down to 4 feet. Only two flags all day, both (pike) got off, no action on jigging.

But who cared? We got out on first ice and didn't get wet. grin.gif

Checked Amnicon on the way home, and the ice on the main lake looked pretty iffy.

    • Wow, I didn't think single stage versus 2 stage snow throwers would become a Ford vs Chevy conversation.  My take is that for the average home owner with a flat, concrete/asphalt, standard three stall garage wide driveway, the single stage should suffice.  I will continue using my 2 stage at the cabin on the driveway and gravel parking/walkways.   Leech has me concerned on the Honda single stage, so now I just need to determine which to buy.
    • I wasn't planning on going due to the project list getting longer but I took my 7 year old out to sit last weekend. We got home and he was telling his mom all about it and how cool it was seeing deer walk by and how he wished there was more time in the season. That was when the wife asked why I wasn't going to go during muzzleloader and that I should go so I can take him out again. I felt like I had to be a good husband and just agree with her. Sometimes it's about compromising with your wife just to keep the peace in the house. 
    • I would bet that there will be people out on smaller lakes in the Detroit Lakes area this weekend. 
    • If time allows I will get out for a couple walks in the woods with the muzzy.  I didn't get anything with the gun and have yet to buy a bow license cuz time was spent chasing fall walleyes opposed to deer.  Good Luck to those that get out!!
    • Looks nice. You must have to be real careful with the saw to get clean even cuts and the bases.
    • Very cool, love the woodpeckers.  I save fat from my deer to feed them all winter. They seem to prefer that to the store bought suet cakes.
    • thanks guys, i've only owned 2 blowers. both 2 stage and the first one i think came over on the mayflower!!!!!!!!!!! guess i never paid much attention to other blowers!!!!!
    • Looks great! Big improvement in a small area
