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

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
