Bait Shop Guy,

I haven't checked the ice here yet, but I just got back from Little Badwater (which is the first body of water in Dickinson County that gets fishable ice), and there was 4" by the shore (NOT in the deeper waters). For the last 3 years, the Mine Ponds have run 2" BEHIND Little Badwater, so I would imagine there is only a couple inches today. If nobody else posts here this week, I'll try and run out here and check by the weekend. I would think with these temps it should be ready by next weekend, but please be advised: the Mine Ponds DO NOT freeze evenly at first...you can walk on the first couple inches by shore while looking at open water in the deeper holes.

Anyone been by the ponds lately? Just wondering if they've iced over yet? I would think so by now. Looking at the long range forecast, it seems like next weekend may be the time for the first trip out on the ice.

Lost@C....I've been out here with my kids a few times in the last few weeks...The scenery is still as beautiful as it ever was; sorry I don't have a digital camera to upload any pics...and the fishing is as usual; hundreds of small sunfish and small bass. This is about the only place my kids will fish at because they don't have to be patient for a bite! Still a great place to be to enjoy some outdoor serenity!

..Stepdad hadn't been out fishing yet this year, and he wanted to spend a few hours out here...as usual, loads of fish. Went thru 120 redworms, probably caught 150+ panfish...could't even fish 2 poles...only 4 "keepers": 9" perch, 11.25" perch, 8" 'gill, and 10" crappie. How does a body of water support so many dinks and so few quality fish???? Overpopulation perhaps??? Nice night anyway! Tight lines!!!

...fished East Pond for a few hours this evening...as usual, MASS amounts of LM Bass & panfish ('gills, crappie, perch). No quality fish, just numbers...an EXCELLENT place to bring kids and teach them how to fish. No patience required here!

Teichin 6969...... If you haven't been here in that many years, you will be heartbroken if you try for walleye here anymore. These ponds used to be the best walleye fishing I have ever experienced, however, times have changed. Ponds are overrun with small bass and bluegill. There are still walleye in here, but NOTHING NEAR what it used to be! Good Luck!

Fished the ponds Friday and Saturday. Caught dozens of small Bass and small blue gills. The Bass way too small to keep and the blue gills were all 3 inches. In most places you could get out and walk on the clouds of Bluegills. Are there any Crappies to be had here ? Sad

Been making the four plus hour trip up a couple times a year for maybe 6 years. The fishing isn't what it was when it was a real challenge. What I really enjoyed is during the week it was like a little Canada... Loons, decent fishing and isolated. Wish I was lucky enough to live in the area to have more time to look for another water like this... guess I'll be on the search the next couple trips.

Ice Depth: 10"
All i can say is that with all the improvements to the roads and boat launches is that it will make it easier for people to access the lakes. Anytime they make it easier for access the fishing goes way down. Alot of people i know liked that it was rural and hard to get to lakes. Doesn't anybody like a challenge anymore. It was a little piece of heaven to some but i guess everybody wants the easiest way. Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad They might as well fill them up with carp. At least there will be something to catch in the ponds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
