Safe Ice?

Postby Islandfisher » Jan Thu 28, 2021 8:14 pm

Does anyone know if there is safe ice on Beck? I was thinking about going out for my first ice fishing trip of the year on Saturday before the snow starts. Thanks in advance for any info.
If you're fishing slow and not catching anything, fish slower.

i have not fished there this year but would bet it's 7 inches average. as most know, the south and west side of the island sees some heavy sun so thats the spot to be careful around.

Thanks for the info! A comrade of mine drove by there this morning and reported seeing people out on the ice. Wish me luck for tomorrow: fingers crossed.

Thanks for the update oldsalt. I drove past Axe Head on my lunch break and saw a half dozen people on the ice. As urbanhog said, there should be about 6-7" of ice out there. I'll let you all know how it went tomorrow evening. Hopefully I won't need to use my ice picks.
