Default Northern VT Ice Fishing

I hit this ice this past weekend for the first time this year on Lake Champlain. Had to ride a couple of miles to get to the lake. I caught a 26" and a 28" northern. Never got a pic of them. More pics to come though seeming I go out every weekend.

On our way back to the trucks and trailers.

Love VT for Northern Pike. Caught a 33" out of Lake Hortonia and my son got a 29" out of Lake Dunmore. Great pics.

Thats the same conditions we have here in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario,Canada. The people who bought there $250 snowmobile trail permits are crying since no trails are open yet.

nice pics

I'd be skiddish as hell on the ice around here (douglas, mass)- most lakes don't even have ice on them or just a real thin layer of ice.

Highgate is on the Northern end of Lake Champlain. It's been pretty seasonal up there from what I can see.

Same down here in Rhode Island... I have the ice fishing itch but didn't think it'd be worth a trip to VT... Now that I see you guys have a great layer of ice I may have to take a ride up! Sold my 4x4 suzuki 500cc in October and only have an off brand 2x4 250cc utility with winch for now not sure it would be good enough up there though.

Anyways, Great pics glad to see some New Englanders in here!

How much ice do you guys have there?

Here in Minnesota we are still waiting for winter to come. We have 3-6" of ice, you will not catch me on the ice with my wheeler yet.

Thanks guys!

As of last weekend 1/7 & 1/8:
Lake Champlain Lapans Bay (St. Albans, VT) 7"
Lake Champlain St. Albans Bay 5"
Lake Carmi (Franklin, VT) 8"

I heard this past weekend:
Lake Champlain Mississquoi Bay (Highgate, VT) 1 foot.

I never did make it out this past weekend because I came down with a massive head cold and havent done a thing and it pisses me off because the ice is now really nice and Im stuck in the house trying to feel better.

Im sure theres more ice out there now seeming its been below zero for the past few nights and in the single numbers during the day.

Last I knew the snowmobile trails where not open around here. We got 6" of snow Friday and thats the most we have got all year.

Highgate only has 6" of snow??? Wow. We've had a snow drought here too. Nothing on the ground in the Lowell, MA area.
