Lake Winnibigoshish Ice Conditions & Fishing Report for December 10, 2009

Hello, from Lake Winnie!

It is almost that time for the hard water on the big lake. Here's an ice report for you. Ice conditions on the lake are starting out "ok." Third river has 3 to 4 inches of ice and there is some spearing going on with several pike over 30 inches that have been speared.

Mississippi area varies in ice thickness from 2 to 3 inches, as we have a lot of current still comming into the lake. Great caution should be used in this area!

The main lake, as of Tuesday, varies from 2 to 5 inches, with the east side being thicker but broken up some, as wind blew pretty hard when the ice was first being formed.

We will have more updates again this week as we are going out and checking every day. It's supposed to be an extremely cold weekend and great for making ice.
