My brother is out on Franklin right now. He said theres a good 7" of ice, but your holes flood pretty quick though. He said there isn't very much slush under the snow.

I Love teeth

As my brother pointed out the ice is a good seven inches with alot of snow on top, we weren't off shore to far though. When we were leaving a guy, on a 4-wheeler asked how much ice so we told him. He drove right out into the middle of the lake without stopping and checking the ice out there but he made it 500 yards out. He was more trusting of the ice than I was.

I've been out fishing on Lizzie once.. two years ago.. The ice looked alright and there was a few people out there... there was like a foot of ice but it was flooding and some areas were only 4-5 inches and those areas would flood like crazy.... be carefull out there.....I have no Idea how much ice is out there.. but It's prolly not the safest yet.. I would give it awhile... I would rather fish other lakes that aren't questionable like this one.... but then again I'm not a brave as some are on some lakes... good luck

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
