I'm on the north east side of Rush by the St. Lawrence access, where did they go through? We have had about 12 inches of ice. Thanks

The news reports state it was in the middle of the lake. I know, that does not narrow it down much.

The ice is still not all that good, folks. The majority is ok for sled traffic, it seems, but there are some spots that still give me the creeps.

I live on a small lake, under 1000 acres. It has about a foot of ice on it. In fact, I saw a F150 out on the 'community spot' this afternoon. He might be ok, as lots of holes have been drilled in that area, and it pretty much consolidated the slushy stuff into ice pack. I don't know if I'd risk a vehicle yet, though.

When I was returning home on my sled, I went across several slush fields, some quite deep. I also noted a what looked to be wash out holes in them. These were small circles of dark water that looked to go all the way through. I gave them a wide berth.

I have never seen such variable ice this late into December.

People have been driving trucks out there for more than 2 weeks now. I am suprised no one has gone in earlier. Those guys are lucky to be OK

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
