Black Lake by Minnetonka

1 post in this topic

There are many thin ice spots on this lake as of this afternoon. A buddy and I drove by to see if anyone was out there fishing. There were 2 shacks out closer to the channel and tracks out in a lot of different places from shore, so we decided to give it a try. We drilled a couple of holes in about 5ft and there was about 4-5" in most of the spots we drilled. Then came the scary part, I drilled a hole and there was only 2in of ice, maybe less shocked.gif. I almost dropped the auger and packed up everything and left, but we decided to stay in a spot around 7ft and where there was a little more ice. I just wanted to warn people about the thinner ice out there and be careful. By the way, we marked a couple of fish, but didn't catch them.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
