CIRCLE LAKE RICE COUNTY

5 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if Circle has drivable ice, and if the other side of the island is safe for a 4-wheeler?

The ice around the island is always an area that needs to be checked daily. I would suggest "tip-toeing" out there with a 4-wheeler and assess the situation from there. Much of the ice on the rest of the lake, though, is safe for vehicle traffic.

Proceed with caution and always double-check for yourself.

we have a house out there, all the ice is fine to drive on except like sheephead said on the west side of the island. they usually put signs out when they have it turned on, but do not trust that. theres a lot of snow out there right now, jus be carefull on that side.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
