Driving on Trout Lake?

3 posts in this topic

I've been seeing people drive at the very north end of Trout Lake, and the ice seems plenty thick, but does anyone know if it's OK to drive out to the middle of the lake yet? I'd like to do some exploring tomorrow. Any replies appreciated...

I would stongly urge you NOT, I repeat NOT drive a vehicle out on to Trout Lake to "explore". You are asking for trouble if you do. That is one lake in this county that I would not trust one bit!!! It is always one of the last one's to freeze up and with the winter and poor ice conditions we're having, it's a recipe for disaster out there!!! I'd even be leary of driving an ATV or snowmobile out across the lake.

Thanks Brian. I decided to hit the south end this morning and only drove as far as the end of the plowed path--1/4 mile. Of course, after I got out there, I yerked and yerked on the power auger starting rope and couldn't get it to run for more than 20 seconds. Played with that for at least a half hour--with a mouthful of choice words!!, saw a little sunlight and gave up for the morning....sometimes technology isn't an improvement I guess. Weird, it ran flawlessly yesterday. I figure I'll try and diagnose the problem today and try my luck tonight.

Anyone heard what's working on Trout? Depths, presentations? Thanks.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
