Any reports after the rain yesterday? Ice conditions? Heading up on saturday morning. Is Aquatic arts the best bait shop to call for ice reports on this lake? Atv travel still gonna be ok on saturday? I heard 8 in of snow for Saturday as well. What's the local stations saying? Thanks eyefan!

Got on the ice and found out there happened to be a contest. Didn't enter, after 2.5 hrs with not a nibble, we moved and got a 24 in northern on a tip-up, one tiny perch and one tiny crappie, with one 10 in crappie. Water covering the ice and on the ice road 4-6 inches of water. The water level of the lake is 5-6 feet lower than topographic maps say. Very warm, most didn't wear but shirt and jeans all over the lake. Minnows what caught everything, nothing on the waxies. Tight lines everyone.
Ice conditions on Nokomis are well. ATV probably your best mode of transportation on the ice. In most areas theres around 15" of ice with little snow cover on top. However, obviously it is a flowage. Use extreme caution around the bridges and bottlenecks in the channels. There is open water appearing in its usual locations.
Drove by the lake a few minutes ago, I dont fish the lake, but there are ATV's all over and a few trucks. I know other local flowages have 18 inches of ice or so, the only thing that is a little soupy as of now is the landings. I would still bring a atv, but use common sense. I just made flotation devices for mine.
Hi guys looking for some info. We plan on coming up next weekend to give it a shot. Want to go out by the post office saw there is a launch over there. Anything I need to watch out for? Bad ice areas like Springs and such and is atv travel still gonna be ok next weekend? We can walk if we have to just wanted to know. Any current ice conditions would be appreciated. Feel free to pm me. This will be our first time out there. We have a basic idea where to go and catch walleyes just want to be safe about it. Thanks eyefan
