Correct, the lake is shallow. Not much for stucture. The Elk river goes through the lake, so the ice can vary in thickness. Be carefull where you go with vehicles, that is, if they are driving out. Avoid the inlet and outlet areas as the current is stronger there. Haven't been on the lake for about a month. Was out there at the end of Nov. and early Dec. and marked fish but they're finicky biters. Got one 30" northern first time out. Nothing since.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
