Will we get any ice fishing in this year?

Post by Rusty Spinner » Sat Jan 12, 2019 11:18 am

What does everyone think? I know I saw a few intrepid anglers out on Budd Lake in early December for about a day or two, but most of that lake remained open at the time. We really haven't had a sharp cold snap since, but right now it's calm with a high here of 25 and the sun isn't too bright. We may see some of the earlier lakes and ponds freeze over again this weekend and be safe in some areas next week. Too soon to say. Anyone get out in other states?

Long range forecasts into mid February look favorable for ice fishing.

yup, looks like it. I was just looking at Monday's forecast when I bring my daughter back to college and it's supposed to be a high of 12 F with a low that night of 5F. If lakes are already frozen over now, nights and days like that will help. Even today with little or no sun (at least up north), we added some ice. Let's get out there soon! This weekend's weather is supposed to suck and I have the Fisheries Forum meeting at Hackettstown on Saturday at 10 am.

Lots of friends on forums and Facebook are gearing up for some ice time. Several areas up north here have safe ice (4" - 6").
