I was out there on Sunday, drove my 3/4 ton pickup and had no problems. Ice ranged from 13-16 inches. Fished the northeast end. Caught one 19" northern on a 8" sucker with a tip-up. Pretty slow.

Crappies have been very spotty the last 3 weeks. When you get them, they are nice!!!

Ryan- hey first time on this site but I've fished this lake a bit. Are you out there this weekend? I'm still figuring out the winter crappies but I have a few spots that could be worth trying.

Welcome aboard!!!! The only tip I can give is stay away from all the lake traffic. The Crappies have been pounded very hard and are spooky!!!!!

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
