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

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
