Skaguay ICE????

Anyone heard anything about Skaguay? I'm thinking about going out there Saturday morning, but trying to avoid a long drive for nothing.

Went up on Saturday afternoon. Even with the nice weather, temp was about 30 when we showed up at 1. The ice averaged 5-7 inches and was snow covered so cleats werenít a necessity. Caught 5 in the 2 hours we were there. Stayed on the north side of the lake around the bend from the boat ramp. Spoke to some other guys from the south side sounded like they had the same luck and ice conditions.

Iím planning on going this Sunday. Anyone else planning on going this Sunday? Iíve never been before but looking to find a more secluded place than the sausage fest I found at Terryall this past Sunday. Let me know, would love to meet up with someone for company.

Went today, great action for rainbows. Fished on the northern side of the lake only about 100í or so from the boat ramp. Found a nice point off the shore and fished 26í deep with green glow-finkies tipped with butter worms. Got there about 8am and had our limit by 10am. Ice was good and strong, mostly clear but some cloudy areas. 10Ē thick where we drilled. There were some areas that were a little sketchy, we stayed away from those areas. Good day! Not as crowded as Terryall has been.

BE CAREFUL! Ice thickness varies from 4-12Ē with patches of open water in the middle. We saw one man fall completely through ice about 150-200 yards out from the north side around the bend from the boat ramp. Thatís was around 9. Luckily, he was able to get out and run for the parking lot. There were a number of ugly spots closer to the middle but overall the ice was in good shape along both north and south shores. Fishing wasnít bad. As group of 5 we caught 12 bows 14-16Ē
