Don't give up all hope. I caught some decent gills out there this winter. I never keep them, wife won't eat ones with the Black dots and these are pretty loaded with them sometimes. Just fun to catch.

The Crappies do run in that 8-9in range only. It's the new Pelican as far as shore spots go. I thought Ice fishing pressure wasnt all that heavy compared to a year or two ago.

Keep at it!

Beebe opened up yesterday. Had the boat out for awhile as did a few others. Most everything in the area should be open I would guess.

Commence fishing,

2 Boats on Beebe last night, one breaking through a good sized ice flow. The bay with the houses and the south 1/3 of the lake still had a layer of ice. Schmidt looked to be completely ice free.


I agree with the above, drove by as the second boat was coming to the lake. Should give the rest of the ice up today or tomorrow for sure. Yeah, Schmidt looked to be open as far as I could see. Latest Ice out for Beebe I've ever seen.

This morning, Rice in Maple Grove was pretty much ice free other than a few final sheets pushed up against the north shore. Fish still had ice, but sides and the middle by the narrow spot were open. Ice was very black.

Pelican still had ice yesterday, but lots of it is starting to open. I think everything out in Wright county should open up this week, just in time for opener! Been a late one.

I went by Schmidt and Beebe yesterday. The shoreline on both is starting to pull away pretty good. The dirt road area of Beebe had two nice channels of open water where the culverts are. I think it's going to go pretty quick.


Glad to hear it is opening up by the road on Beebe. Then the wind can start cutting it open and the rest should follow.

Anyone been by any lakes to see how the ice out is coming along?

I have only been by Pelican and it is opening around the edges and the smaller bays are open. My backyard pond just opened yesterday, so that is a good sign.

With the 70s coming, I think we should be fine for opener around here. That Sun is strong now.

I suppose a report wouldn't be complete without a fish pic. Metro crappies special, .

Yeah, it would of worked for that! Yeah, maybe I should go harvest some ice for summer camping trips.

The dragging did about kill me. Getting too old for that crap! Normally late ice is great for dragging, not this year.

The snow will sure mess things up, not the best on weak ice. It will run right thru it when it melts. It's not even like the fish are that much into a late ice deal either. Bring on the ice melt.

Not sure. There was a UTV out there. I'm probably done too. The snow makes dragging a pain and when it melts will be a mess. Maybe more coming too.

But if a guy wants to walk and go light, there are some days left. The shoreline was fine. I'm happy I got out one more time.

Still 2ft of old ice down here in Eastern Wright county. Fine for walking. Should be decent up there.
