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.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
