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.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
