Any one been on Island Lake lately? What is the ice thickness?
I've measured 6 inches of ice where I was fishing. Surprisingly to me, there were two trucks driving on the ice over the weekend by one of the islands, then another single truck that ventured out further the next morning. Maybe they had more ice where they were at... too risky for me to try. Otherwise, saw a couple snowmobiles, couple UTVs, as well as a half dozen 4 wheelers on the lake.
Set a few tip ups out as well as tried some tip downs, had a few flags tripped but nothing worth keeping, only caught a few perch and 3 smallish walleyes (13 inches was the largest).
Any ice updates? How is the ice fishing on Island Lake?
Fish it every year in September for a whole week. Stay at Wright's Resort. My family has been fishing it for over 55 years. In 1972 my father caught a 51 1/4 inch and we have been trying to best him ever since. We take him along , he is 84 this year. Still loves to fish them.
Nice catch . Haven't fished Island for a number of years. Usually fish Sand just down the road. Maybe next time I am up in the area.
Hey ResQ91 , Pretty slim pickings in here. I'll post a few times a year after returning home. We use a Family Cabin on "Island". All I can say is check in from time to time. This was a really active page several years back. Lately not so much.
21° - 25° F
Anyone still posting on the Island Chain?
Finally got a place here and interested in hearing fishing reports!
We were up last week on McCann for Crappie and pretty slow going.
