Hey Gissert, Any idea on the ice thickness on S.T.? Wondering when my shack can be opened up for beer drinking. I haven't been able to break away for a weekend to check things out. Thanks in advance. wink.gif

There was about 7 inches out there last weekend, with some water on the ice. As of Friday, I had the place to myself. Saturday there was a handful of protables/wheelers out there.

I expect the perm shacks will show up soon. The road was not plowed down to the lake, so the snow was pretty deep at the bottom of the hill.

Alright thanks, with the cold weather coming in I should be able to get my house out next weekend. Snow must be waying the ice down. I am guessing thats where all the water on the ice is coming from?

Hey der Gissert. The true "Ranger" is coming up to fish for the week after Christmas. Toss me an email. I'd like my Dad to toss a few fish in the bucket along with his empties.

You should be ok now. Last weekend there was a solid foot where I was, but LOTS of slush in spots.

No vehicles yet, just wheelers and sleds.

      We were up north of DL 15 miles this weekend and a ton of water on the ice but it's from melting snow.  All the holes we drilled the ice was still 1-2" above water level.  It was pretty hard getting around especially at accesses due to the snow melting.  Was very soft but I was able to get around with my Rav 4, barely made it up the accesses huge hill because traction control turned off but made it though!  We had 18-19" of ice 12-14" of it was clear ice.

      1/23/17    Night crappie bite is on. Hit Waconia Saturday evening. Got a good sunfish bite half hour before sunset until dark. Crappies bit well from six to eight pm. Larger Tungsten Tubby in glow tipped with a wax worm and a small VMC spoon in glow pink fire UV tipped with a waxie were the best baits. Sunfish were near the bottom over a deep basin area adjacent to a shallower weedy area, and crappies moved through spread out over the bottom eight feet or so of the water column. Sunfish still biting during the day on Prior, but they are moving around a lot so you need to hole hop for a consistent bite. Numbers and size. Tiny Tungsten Tubby or Gill Pill with one or two red Eurolarvae were working well. An inline reel is a big help as it reduces line twist and keeps you jig from spinning and spooking finicky sunfish. Still sixteen to eighteen inches of ice on Waconia, and fifteen to sixteen on Prior. Water and slush on top, but more seasonal temps this week should firm things up. Good luck, be safe, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Sure wish that it would freeze up before the snow in the forecast comes

      I did get out on the ice, but unfortunately it was the ice on my driveway.  Spent a lot of time spreading salt and sand!  No time for fishing this weekend.

      Speaking of towers, does anyone know what the tower is for on 24 north of the VDL?
