Hello all, looking at fishing Wawa and BSL tomorrow - Sat. and was wondering if using an ATV will work on these lakes. -- Thanks

I'd check w/ Willeys for the latest, but I think I'd wait before using a wheeler. The ice is poor

Taking a wheeler out now is like russian roulete.

Some places it's good and there are others that will swallow you up.

If it were me,I'd go to area's that I can walk out too.

Even then you are taking a chance,albeit slim.

BobberDown went in up to his hip and he busted through 7".

I work with guys that fish both lakes and we all agree.

You are taking a big chance with a quad.

Sleds are fine as long as you are going mach speeds.

Slow down and your going for a swim.

We have not been making much of any ice under that snow.

The slush is weakening the ice.

We need a warm spell or some rain to pack or melt the snow,then let it get cold again.

A side note....Aitkin Sheriff's dept said 3 sleds have gone in on BSL.Scuttle says 5.

I've also heard a confirmed report of a wheeler going through on Sissabagamah, and an uncomfirmed rumor of one going through on Hickory. All this snow wreaked havoc on the ice. Even with the super cold temps last weekend, not much ice was added. It's supposed to warm up next week, hopefully it gets warm enough to knock the snow pack down a bit. It sounds odd to say that we need some warm weather to start making good ice, but that's what we need....

By now this ice should be thick enough in most areas except those slushy spots.

I do not trust areas where water is on top of the ice.
