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.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
