I haven't been out there for a week or so now but when i was out there people driving all over the lake, even watched two drunk guys race about a mile back to the access.

I was there on Sunday and people were driving everywhere. I was in the SW area and had 20+" of ice.

Was also out on sunday, was fishing on big just outside of little. The ice was VERY thick, I'm going to need an extension soon! But to answer your question there were several cars/trucks driving across the middle and everywhere on the lake.

There's a public access on Little Green and Big Green. I would not drive in-between the two lakes....so drive out on the lake you inted to fish. There's an access on the northeast side of Little Green and the one for Big Green is on the East side of the lake off county road 23.

FL, When I drove by there on Saturday it looked like passing through the narrows has been made impossible for the average vehicle. It looked like a nice ice heave right there sticking up a couple feet above the rest of the ice. There were kids out there with their parents climbing on it. There were plenty vehicles driving on the ice though.

If I weren't bringing my little boy home, I would have drove out there and tried to remind them of what happened to the little girl on Christmas eve of 06. She was climbing on similar ice chunks when one cracked and crushed her. Please if you are bringing kids out there, it may look like fun to climb the ice, but don't take the risk as it could cost you and your family dearly, and that is the last thing any of us want to see.

That's a great reminder polar, its so easy for accidents to happen, always double think about what your doing, it doesn't take much time to just step back and think about it quick. Thats what i tell my buddy when we go in these sub zero temps., you know when everything just breaks, he rolls his eyes at me but understands..

Yes, the pressure ridge is a good 2-3 feet above the level ice. even if the ice ridge wasn't there it's still unsafe to drive a vehicle over, the ice is alot weaker due to the slight current. wouldn't worry about it this late in the season, but good point polar. I was dinkin around the ridge last time out there and the its atleast 6 inches thick, that would tickle a bit if it fell on you...

Be careful driving on Green because I remember a few years ago the ice was around 18-24 inches, but some spots were thin and almost open water. And you know the reason why the ice was dangerous thin in some spots, the big school of HUGE carps huddling together close to the surface. Good luck yalls and be safe.

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
