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

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
