Title: Ice season 21/22
Post by: Evinrude58 on August 22, 2021, 05:21:58 PM
Now that I am back to being able to fish reasonably well I am looking towards the coming ice season. Where is everyone olooking to  head this season? Am hoping to hit another different lake up North, maybe St Helens. Am also hoping to do the ice tourneys in NW PA if I can find a committed partner. Of course Erie if possible.

You know I will be on Moggy so see you there. Bought the insulated Eskimo hub two years back and replaced my flip mid season for an insulated Eskimo Wide One so fishing in style now.

Glad to hear you can get back out Evinrude.  I plan on vetting out on GLSM, Indian, Loramie, Lima reservoirs.  If things get cold, a few trips to Erie would be nice.

Glad to see a little activity on the site. I plan to hit Indian as much as possible with a few Alum Creek trips thrown in. Of course if we get good ice plan on hitting Erie again. I'm from St. Marys but never really ice fished it that much. Heres to a long ice season. (Right after deer season)

Looking at Simcoe and maybe Lake of the Woods. Not sure. Would like to get up someplace in late Jan early Feb.

Iíll be (hopefully) all over around here!  Not sure if I can make a long trip.  Itís been a tough year.   I still have all my gear out from last year.  It never got put away.   Yeah, itís been like thatÖÖÖ
I still need to send out the rods too.   Later I will post the reason why everything is behind.

Hopefully, get to hit Michigan lakes this season.  Entered in two tournaments last season, both were canceled.  Possibly, make a run to Minnesota, but that will be a long shot.  And definitely would like to get on Lake Erie at least once this season.

There is a Walleye/Perch tournament at Hubbard Lake that is big. Can do it on foot but an atv would be much better,

I will fish my pond primarily, but I'm also going to try a private lake near me in West Mansfield that I am a member of. Lets hope for good ice this year similar to last year!

Anybody have an idea of what the local water temps are?  And shoulder surgeries aren't bad, it's the 4 months of therapy that bites.
Title: Re: Ice season 21/22
Post by: slabslayer on January 02, 2022, 03:20:00 PM
Haha!!  I hear your there!  The therapy is the worst!  Been there twice.  Once on each side.   ::)
As far as water temps, I havenít been out since the end of November.  But looking at the upcoming temps, if theyíre close to accurate, we should be walking on water in a couple weeks!

Ditto!!   Iím beyond ready!  Been a rough year, and the last 2 weeks Iím finally feeling a little better and ready to drill some holes!

not sure where you are but my channel at Indian was frozen till the winds picked up later yesterday. Wind tonight is blowing  straight  down the channel with gusts up to 40mph. Water temp at my dock was 33.5 about 30 minutes ago. Channel has frozen on and off since 3rd week of November. If itís wasnít so windy the next few days it would freeze up quickly. Canít give you any main lake temps.
If the  current forecast holds, it should make some channels walkable by the 20th. My channel just needs days in the low 30s with nights in the teens to 21 for about 5 to 7 days to be around 4 inches. High winds donít helpÖ

I ran over to have tires put on a vehicle and 90% of the main lake is iced up today. A few areas stayed open due to wind but they are closing up now. South and west shores are locked up. Blackhawk is locked up. Most areas are. Moundwood is still open.

Does it count as ice fishing if tomorrow, the ice isn't safe on my pond and I go out on my 4x8 Pelican bass raider boat?  ;D I can use my spud bar to get out to the deep water and drill off the side and ...............fish!! I may not break thru with the weight spread out and if I do, who cares? I'm in a boat!
Title: Re: Ice season 21/22
Post by: fshman_165 on January 07, 2022, 10:38:15 AM
Yes, that definitely counts.

Post by: FishLaughAtMe on January 07, 2022, 06:20:03 PM
I guess as long as there's a round hole with a line going down your ice fishing. I hope that the up and down weather pattern just stays down for a while. I hate getting my hopes up and then watch the weather and get P.O'd.  Fingers are crossed.

Post by: slabslayer on January 07, 2022, 06:44:57 PM
Definitely counts!!!   Iíve done that more than once on my dadís small lake.   Fishing can be on fire that way.  Just pushed my flat bottom Jon boat out and had a rope tied to a big tree if I went through to make pulling the boat out and to shore easier.   Worked like a charm and never needed the rope!

I have 4 inces on my small pond! Fished about 2 hours yesterday with the East wind. Wind from the East, fishing least. Wind from the West, fishing best was true. Drilled 5 holes in different depths, no bites. Will be out tomorrow.

Wow, the bite has been SLOW. Caught 1 dink perch yesterday. I wouldn't have noticed the bite if I wasn't watching my spring bobber. VERY light biter. It's still good to get out on the ice.

Sweet!   That first one on the ice is always great to kick off the season.

Does anyone have an idea of the ice thickness on Nimi?  I heard there were a few guys out there today.

Thanks,

No I havenít.   Iím sure itís ready today though.   As well as OSP.  Checked both of those Tuesday and they were borderline.  After Friday and last night we should be good.  Only hope is the snowstorm tonight doesnít kill everything.  Thereís not that much of a base if we get the totals they are calling for of 8-12Ē.
