I am hoping they are good by now...!?! We head out there every new years and it is always good...at least for walking. Even with last years warm December there was 5-6" in some of the bays.

Anyone?

Carlos was one of our last lakes in the area to cap over. I would use extreme caution the first couple of times out.

Thanks Wayne. That is disappointing. We are headed out again this year for new years, please keep us posted as you know more. I am hoping the next 2 weeks can add some thickness.

I agree with what Wayne said I live on carlos and it isn't very thick at all. I would wear a life jacket out the first couple times. I know I will be going out next week to check! on the 22nd I can help you more then!

Thanks Drake, please keep us posted. Where are you on the lake? We usually go out over by Blakes(south end). The last 4-5 years we have had some solid ice by new years, at least 6", never an issue. I was hoping with the cold snap the ice would be decent, (Contact Us Please) snow.

      This ice season  has been in the books on the st croix for about a week now. I ended my year out there with a 50" sturgeon.

        What is working for 2 fishing buckets, ion auger & Vexlar for walking out on early/late ice?   Appreciate to hear what works for walking out for a hole hopping Crappie freak

      I have been busy with Work ... went down to check it out North access this morning.  Definitely good enough to walk out.  a tall guy walked a big sled right out.  was also a clam 2 seater pull over out on the ice.  The wind however is blowing very cold!  I do not have a sled for walking out ... so hoping for ATV ice soon!  I went searching at Princeton Wallmart if they had any leftover sleds, no go.  Will have to pick one up this week.   Bob
