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 !

      Never did report back from last weekend.  We fished Friday evening through Sunday morning.  Friday and Saturday were pretty slow, between 5 of us we had about 6 keepers nothing over 15", and were fishing pretty hard, moving a lot.  Got up early Sunday morning and had a great bite on a main lake reef, we ended up keeping a limit between the 3 of us that were out there.  The other two were pretty disappointed they slept in.  We were sitting in 28' of water and caught most of our fish on minnow heads and a rattle jig, as well as a couple slot fish on a shiner under a tip up.
