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.

      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.
