4 posts in this topic

went out to duck lake in madison lake yesterday and measured about 15-16" of ice in the holes i drilled and seen 6-8 trucks out there and was thinking of putting my wheel house out there tomorrow and was just wondering if theirs any springs or bad spots to watch out for

There can be thin spots on that lake. It was one of the last to freeze over this year. I guess I would just take some time and if you are not sure, drill ahead of the vehicle to check the ice depth so you don't go swimming.

Do be careful on driving on Duck. I have found the North end to be covered with snow and slush and there are spots that have less than seven inches of 'good' ice.

While there are full size trucks driving on the South end of Duck do not assume the entire lake is safe.

Merry Christmas !

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
