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.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
