Where is there ice thick enough to do that? I only thought that most lakes were skimmed over by now. Myself i think ill wait till theres a good 5 inches still

Checked out Little Rock, Rush and Elk. They were completely iced over and with a ten day forecast not above 32, it's gonna be time very soon. I would say they had over an inch but i didn't chisel them(could stand on it), shorelines were skim from the warmer temps though.

I'll be out on the ice, though I'll be wearing a life jacket and saying my prayers. I think I'll hit one of the small, shallow lakes like Rush, Elk, Briggs, Julia, School Section, Goodners, one of the Spunks, Kraemer, or something similar. I don't really care at this point if I catch anything big or not; I just want to see that little bobber go under without me going in after it! grin.gif

Oh, and I might have to tiptoe my way over to the tip-up, too. Thankfully I've lost about 10 lbs in the last couple of months, but at 260, I do wish I either carried less weight or had waaay bigger feet. smile.gif

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share

      I found some ice!!! Not exactly much, and there are swans in the picture indecating open water too. But it's a start.
