Ice Out Report 2019

Posted by

We're making the call on the ice fishing season! The ice is extremely poor across the area now, and most small ponds are out. There have been a few ice anglers sneaking out yet, but it is starting to get very unsafe. A handful of the small lakes are on the edge of going out and should be ice free within a day or so. The medium to larger lakes are really darkening up, but we're still a few days away on most of those. We think we're going to see a lot of lakes open up within 10 days here!

Ice Fishing Report, April 15, 2019

Most of the snow from last week is already settled down to pretty much nothing - slushy and wet! The warmer weather coming will definitely finish the snow off, and they are currently forecasting some rain. It is going to get pretty tough to get onto the ice real quick. We had some reports last [...]

Fishing has been very good the last few days! Ice conditions are starting to go downhill fast which is good for everyone ready for open water, but bad for the ice fishing! We just got a good rain yesterday, and accesses and shoreline are already pulling away pretty good right now. We've pretty much switched [...]

We had another great week of late ice fishing! It was softening up some on the top crust which made it a little tough for ATVs and other vehicles, but overall it was still pretty good. Foot traffic was no trouble at all once you get off the edges. The weekend has been cold and [...]

It was another beautiful weekend on the ice! There were a few sunburns handed out over the weekend, and certainly some good fishing as well. The fish have been making the move shallow. On some lakes the fish have moved way shallow already, and on others they are still in transition. Areas on Leech Lake [...]

Conditions are finally starting to look up for ice fishing! We were able to get a couple cold nights leading into the weekend, and the slush pack that was making tough conditions on most area lakes hardened up! Right now it is pretty easy getting around on foot on most lakes, and wheelers and snowmobiles [...]

It's a sloppy mess out there right now! We finally have been getting some above freezing temps and the snow is melting down, adding to the slush/water problem, but that's what we need to get back on track for some late ice fishing! They're forecasting rain this week with warm temperatures hanging around so we [...]

Ice Fishing Report, March 4, 2019

Ice conditions haven't changed since last week. Lots of slush and snow which is making it very tough getting around. It looks like some 30s and maybe even 40s in the forecast though which should help knock down the snow so the water can start draining. It will be sloppy for a while, but at [...]

Slush and snow problems continue to make it difficult to get around on the ice right now which has really limited the ice fishing around the area. Larger lakes have been the biggest issue right now, but smaller lakes are free of trouble either. Right now the anglers that are getting out without too much [...]

Ice Fishing Report, February 18, 2019

Our slush problems keep getting worse and worse! We had a little break from significant snow this week, but water continues to flow up onto the ice. Slush issues are pretty bad on many of the larger lakes where ice didn't develop as much, and there is more opportunity for sag in the ice. Smaller [...]
