11 posts in this topic

checked second lake today(sat) 2 1/2-3 inch right out from our house, the hole in the middle just froze. chisago channel, 2 inch with like at least 4 groups of people out, it made me nervous. green by south access 3-4 inch. still a stretch of open water by the park on the point on south center.

the lake was open as of a week and a half ago and with the snow fall covering and insulating it, just becareful. There was people fishing in spots on the channel that had open water just a few days before. Dont assume, make sure to check before you go and dont trust someone elses tracks, unless your the twig guy. Like I have always heard, make sure to have a "bigger" guy go out ahead of you first, then you know its safe! grin.gif

Anyone been out on south center. Just wondering how much ice there is. If so has anyone been having luck with panfish, would like to get out this up coming weekend.

otterman...there is another post in this forum about south center...so hopefully they'll be some good ice info posted there soon. I have heard from the bait store that people have been getting out by pancake island and in the bay by Hazeltine. South Center is such a good panfish lake that usually you can get some fish during some part of the day. It always amazes me the pressure that lake (and all chisago lakes) get and still produce so many fish. Pack light...as some areas have made hauling gear tough.
