ICE??

5 posts in this topic

How's the ice situation on Mille Lacs now?? Is everyone driving out, or is there some cracks and bad spots forming?? Any information will be appreciated. Be up there next weekend just curious what to prepare for gear.

What side of lake are you planning on going out from?

East side, Probably out of Appeldorn's on saturday. Is it drivable off the roads without getting stuck with a truck??

I think you'd be okay. I took a 1/2 ton out on the south end by Eddy's near shore. About 18"

Also went to Garrison South Public Access. 14" at 3 Mile Flat, Headed 1.5 miles east, got out and remeasured. 11". Made me a little nervous, that and the snow drifts were crusty and occasional you'd break through to find a bigger snowdrift than you would have thought. I turned back and fished 3 mile (looked deserted...only saw like one auger hole)

You should be okay with Appeldorn's. Just remember the further out you go, the less thick the ice will be. Measure it every once in a while and be sure someone knows where you are going in case you get stuck.

      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.

      Briggs is open as far as I could see.I will be out that way again tomorrow I'll get another glance and see if I spot some on a different side of the lake

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