2 inches not worth it.
 Reply by: Goosehunter82      Posted: 10/16/2018 12:35:01 PM     Points: 50002    
Not worth if for sure but definitely a good sign of things to come. Last year it wasn't fishable until around Thanksgiving.

Earliest ice on Mary's I've seen in about 10 years of paying attention.

Seems like this winter might shake out a lot like 2015. The Blob in the Pacific Northwest + El Nino = cold fall, but mild for the rest of the winter with historically low snowpack in the Rockies, getting worse the further north and west you go. Could be a warm and dry spring or a very wet spring, depending on when the Blob and El Nino break up.

Sure hope I'm wrong.

Almost 60 degrees at 11,000 to day
 Reply by: adrenaline_junkie_ff      Posted: 10/29/2018 12:59:40 PM     Points: 7238    
We hit up 12,000' last Sunday and open water fished. The warm nights killed it.
 Reply by: Goosehunter82      Posted: 11/7/2018 2:29:00 PM     Points: 50002    
Anyone been back up? I'm hoping to get up there on Friday if it's fishable?
 Reply by: lewdog      Posted: 11/7/2018 4:53:16 PM     Points: 3940    
Better take some ice spikes goose. I hope to hit a local pond that capped last night by this sat. It's only gonna be a high of 32 till sat morning up here in SD.

Im sure Summit is good to go for ice fishing if anyone wants to walk up there from Echo Lake with an auger and gear.

Don’t get too anxious dummies. Falling through isn’t worth it. Done it twice neither time did I enjoy it. Be smart stay safe!👍

I'm gonna hit fall river res either Friday or Saturday. Will report
 Reply by: bron      Posted: 11/8/2018 6:10:31 AM     Points: 32824    
I'll keep an eye out for the lake report. Be safe--I'd imagine the road is getting gnarly going up.
 Reply by: Basschaser      Posted: 11/8/2018 7:07:39 AM     Points: 1307    
Yup, I'm sure there's gona be some walking involved

 Reply by: skiman      Posted: 11/8/2018 1:16:33 PM     Points: 2305    
Bass,
Don’t forget to take any snowfall into account, especially on new ice. Added weight of the snow might make what was “safe” a new problem. Good luck!

My babies arrived today! 600 freshies.

Goose,
Those puppies look great! Who’s your supplier if you don’t mind me asking? Thanks in advance. Ski

I use crawfish244 on ebay. I've been using him for 4 or 5 seasons now. We usually buy 500 or a thousand a couple times a season and split them up between my brother, lackskill and I. Great bait and a great price. The link is for 1k but he sells them as small as 250. They last along time and alway come packaged well. Way cheaper than buying from a box store. If you end up buying from him please drop my name. I'm Goosehunter82 on eBay also.

Please don't waste my tax money on rescues or recoveries that should not have happened. I pray we all stay safe and have a gas in all we do.
Thanks, mike

A small price to pay and something to remember if I encounter a basschaser thru the ice!

MOJO,
How about taking your “negativity “ to another site? (This isn’t the first time.)
 Reply by: adrenaline_junkie_ff      Posted: 11/10/2018 4:59:01 PM     Points: 7238

Hey basschaser. Good chatting with you on the ice today.

Ski,
Save it. I've been on 2" and had to learn that it just isn't worth it.

Here's some ice I was on yesterday. Below 6000 ft. Fun stuff.
