Is there any unsafe ice for a truck on the chain?

If you are referring to the horseshoe chain by Richmond. Yes, this chain has the sauk river flowing thru it. Anytime you have flowing water take caution and know where you are going. Get a good map that shows the water flowage.

Carlos is always iffy. Geneva has had a small truck drive from the north to the bible camp regularly. vehicles are out on LeHommeDieu as well. be alert for any heaves that may have popped up with the recent cold snap. stick to well travelled areas...drive slow...windows open.

if you do go through...remain calm, try to exit as soon as you can. if windows can't be opened, remain calm and let the water fill, equalize the pressure then try the doors or windows. the key is to remain calm...and also try to note what type of fish you see, and what they are feeding on!

(this last paragraph IS A JOKE!)

Vehicles are on Darling, too. I don't know if I could ever get enough guts to drive on Carlos.

I saw a smaller truck driving on the east side of lake carlos last weekend but I was shocked that they were driving on the lake. "So Haad" had it right I wouldnt be driving out there unless I was really checking the ice! even then I would be hesitant.

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
