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.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
