Ice Thickness

6 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me the thickness of Bald Eagle, White Bear Lake and Mille Lacs? is it safe enough to drive a 4-wheeler on?

Got out on white bear and atv trails were all over. But where I was at only 6 inches of ice... be careful...

Mille Lacs is about 12" all over but watch for slush spots were it could be thinner... My house is out 1 1/2 right now but were still using snowmobiles/atv for transportation... Good Luck!

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
