I can't answer your questions, but I was also thinking about going to red over the weekeend and wondering which resort seems to be the best to go out of at this time in search of walleyes.

i do believe that hillman's will plow a road for i think $10 other wise we just found a road that they have already plowed and just pulled off it or just backed the fishhouse off the road. if i were you go and look to see what they have for roads already and then decide from their if you want to pay them to plow a road for you.

wiggle that worm, you should go out of west wind they seemed to be on the walleyes and they treat you way better than hillman's.

moto999,

grab a 1.75 of the captain, and head out of hillman's road, kelly-p will sniff you out and take care of ya,but just in case he has a cold bring lots of miller beer with and then club red will take over. look for buddy,kelly or pat out of hillman's, then head nw to the newly plowed area, if that fails call jonny p and hire him to guide ya, then roll into tall tales and tell stories.

ciao.

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
