Anyone been out or driven by recently? Trucks on the ice yet? I was up 10 days ago or so and there was about 10" of ice, and 10" of slush in spots. Pretty rough going. A fishing report would be great too if you've been out.

I was on Gull last weekend. Trucks everywere. I saw one guy driving a Yukon way to fast from Ernies to Stoney Point. He was several hundred yards away but the water was justa-bouncen in my holes. I guess nobody ever told him slower is better when driving a vehicle on the ice. I caught some very small walleyes in 22-29 feet of water and had 12 inches of good ice. From what I have been reading I should try shallower but I am going to go wast my time on Mille Lacs again this weekend instead. At least I will be fishing! I also saw lots of vehicles on Round, North Long and Rice Lakes too but I dont know how the bite is on these lakes.

Thought I'd post an update for Shamineau. There's about 14-15" of ice on the west end, and a real nice road plowed to Auger's. All the slush is frozen now, and the ice seems to be real good.

      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.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
