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!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
