Driving on lakes w/full size truck- NOT ME

8 posts in this topic

On a local lake yesterday (it doesn't matter which one because I'm sure there are many just like this one) one fellow decided he had to be the first to drive out. When I questioned him on the wisdom of such an act he said that here is a good foot of ice. I said that he may have a foot where he is fishing (that is still not nearly enough for me) but is it consistent all the way out?

Where I set up with my otter I had 8 inches of good ice and an inch of frozen junk on top. I bet that I could find 6 inches if I went looking.

I was composing my call to 911 as he drove off the lake. To top it off he drove off at about 30MPH and the ice really did a lot of moving. To top that he drove back out, I suppose to set tracks through the slush so it would be easier the next time, again at a high rate of speed.

Let's have some common sense out there!! mad.gif

Right now I wouldn't get caught dead driving on the lakes. Thye have been on rice, grand and ?. They can go out but stay away from those who wish to be dry.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
