Ice is plenty thick on virtually all lakes, granted there are spots with current on the chain where you still need to be careful, but you should be fine driving on the roads that are blazed on the lakes.

I was out there last weekend and the ice was fine. Lot's of vehicle traffic. However, only one bite in over 10 hours on the ice. Spoke to plenty of others and everyone reported poor angling. Saw a couple of big catfish laying on the ice though 8^)

This is exactly what those people are thinking..."If it's not a walleye, it doesn't belong in the lake!" It's that old school mentality where walleye is the king and any other fish supposedly holds them back. Of course any angler with common sense and average knowledge knows this to be false.

Way to many idiots out there, especially this winter with all the ice that allows everyone to drive out on the lakes.

It depends on which side of the lake you want to go on.If your looking to go on the west side,gain access off of Hwy. 22.If you're driving south from Richmond/Hwy. 23, start slowing down where you see the no parking signs on the east side of the road, after you cross the bridge that goes over the channel betwen Horseshoe, and Cedar Island.There is a winter access spot to drive on on the east side of the highway.It is on the bay just to the north of Mud Lake.

If your looking to get on on the east side of the lake,use the public access, which is right off of Stearns Cty. Rd. 71. The access is about 2-3 miles south of Hwy. 23, on Cty. 71.

Using a car might be easier on the public access.The winter access off of 22 might require 4 wheel drive.I don't know for sure because I haven't used it this year.

I agree...i have no problem with guys that take em and eat em, but the 2 watters that throw any fish on the ice to rot simply aren't sportsmen....

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
