cars on ice

Was on white bear last night and saw a guy drive his car out. Where I was we had about 10"s of good clear ice. You won't catch me out there yet. grin.gif By the way he actually made it out and back, He didn't come out as far as we were but wow.

There are cars out where I am, I would not go out with only 8" of good ice in some areas, although i found some areas with 14 inches of really good ice in some areas...

ocf1, Were you out on Waconia? If so how did you do? I've been out there a few times this winter and haven't one very well - just small perch...

Cars and full size pickups all over the east side of Wayzata Bay Sunday. I stayed west of all the traffic and there was about 12 inches of ice.

There were a half dozen cars out on Johanna in Arden Hills yesterday. If anyone reads this, please do not attempt to drive on the west/northwest side of the lake. I was over there yesterday and the ice is definitely much thinner and slushier than the rest of the lake.

Tons of cars and trucks out on prior, there was no hesitation. no way would i drive a 3/4 ton on 9-10 inches you gotta be nuts to do that, or a fat lazy person. Oh and they were not afraid to drive right next to your house either. I was off the beaten path and had them driving within 5-10 yards of me all day. a-holes if you ask me

I was on Turtle in Shoreview yesterday, and there was 5-10 vehicles, alot of which were full size trucks. It was crazy. Had one guy get out of his perm, jump in his truck drive 50 ft to check a few holes, and then drove back to his house. Oh yeah, drove right next to a guy in a clam, and parked right next to 4 other vehicles. confused.gif Quality individual. I found spots that were only 7-8 in. thick. Not going back there anytime soon!

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      anybody up for a float from sartell to sauk rapids?   smallies should be great.

      I heard Casey retired and sold his boat.

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      It was on the opener last year.

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
