sat the 23rd I walked out on the dock (in a litle bay on cross lake) and walked off it and it held then I sat on the dock and kicked the ice and I could not break through. little pine is that the lake Cedar Chest is on..if so that was fully froze over......on thursday I went for a drive and the bays on the chain were about to frezze fri same drive and they were locked.....ie Moolight Bay (the bay leading to the bar) was open thursday locked up Fri......I would imagine that foot travel this weekend might be possible......a friend also said that clamshell was about completely forze as of Friday also.....

Anybody fish this lake? Wondering how it is going?

Also are the ice conditons good? Did those pockets of open water show up again this year?

Finally heading up this weekend, can't WAIT!!!

Also wondering? I am not going up until late Jan-early Feb, so mainly wondering about ice. Do you think it will be safe to drive a 1/2 ton truck on Crosslake? I haven't fished it cept once in winter, and we just followed some truck tracks and stayed near shore last year.

Irish or anybody, not asking for lakes, but has fishing been good on the smaller lakes in that Crosslake/Emily area? My lake is small lake nobody goes to, not destination lake, but we have fun with crappies and small pike. Looking forward to a couple trips this winter. Going to try a few larger (but still small, Greer, etc.) lakes as well.

Thanks for any info.

there are a few houses out on little pine, i noticed a couple perms on the east shore just north of the old access.

the bite hasn't been to great lately. my honey hole has been found, and nothing doing there either.

fish have been finicky and running real small.

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.

      Drove by Grays Bay this morning. The one and only house left has now partially fell thru. Not sure how this one is coming out.
