Knife lake

3 posts in this topic

Is anyone driving out on Knife lake yet? We want to head up there Sunday. Might have to walk out from the cabin.

Ron, I was there last weekend. Ice conditions where I was on the west side of main lake was 8"-10" of good clear ice with 2"-3" of slush on top of that and about 8" of snow.

Like a lot of lakes this year the weight of the early snow pushed down on the ice and water came up through the cracks causing a layer of slush. Talked to a couple people and the ice thickness varies around the lake from as much as 12" to as little as 4" frown.gif

I was on foot so no problem, mostly ATV's and snowmobiles out there. I did see one full size pick-up truck over by the group of fishhouses out from the access on 65.

I personally would not drive a vehicle on the lake yet.

Good Luck. Dave

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
