Pike Lake Ice Conditions?
« on: Feb 24, 2021, 04:25 PM »
Hello everyone.. I'm hoping to get one last ice fishing trip in tomorrow morning.. Does anyone know if pike lake is fishable? I'm about an hour south of Warsaw and I'm really wanting to get on some walleye..

Should be good. Slop on top was freezing as I left last night on another lake south of there. Lake I was on had plenty of clear hard ice under white slop. Last night/this morning temps hopefully tightened things up well. Be careful of drain holes.

Sweet, thanks for the information.. Getting ready to head up that way now.. Hopefully we can be situated on the lake before the 10:40 major starts..

Tough day of fishing today.. We tried everything but just couldn't get them to bite.. Pike lake still has a good 6 inches of solid ice under the slop.. The slush was frozen when we arrived this morning, but it started melting pretty good this afternoon.. By the time we left at 6:00 we were standing in an inch of water.. At one point, we left Pike Lake and went to Lake Winona, but the ice on Winona was sketchy at best.. There was two inches of water on top of the ice.. Some spots had 6" of solid ice, but other spots we could stick the spud clear through without much effort.. So we played it safe and went back to pike lake.. I think the hard water season is about over with.. Pike lake will probably be fishable tomorrow but I don't see it lasting much longer than that.. Everyone please be safe out there..

i watched 4 different anglers fish out baxck where i was working today.  they all kept moving and didnt stay long.  so you know what that means.


real fishermen don't ask where you caught them.
