Thats the thing about a river, one will never know thickness. With NSP dumping hot water into the river you will go from 23 inches down to 2 inches in a matter of feet. About a month ago I was sitting out on the river fishing on a solid 14 inches of ice. The ice was a clear sheet and the day I was fishing was the same day all the ice sail boats were zipping around. Well one of those guys assumed the ice was safe everywhere and found him self in a world of trouble real quick. From where I was sitting I could see the top of his sail and him crawling out of the water. I called dispatch and directed the rescue to his location. Luckily for him he lived but he learned a valuable lesson about river ice.

      This ice season  has been in the books on the st croix for about a week now. I ended my year out there with a 50" sturgeon.

      I have been busy with Work ... went down to check it out North access this morning.  Definitely good enough to walk out.  a tall guy walked a big sled right out.  was also a clam 2 seater pull over out on the ice.  The wind however is blowing very cold!  I do not have a sled for walking out ... so hoping for ATV ice soon!  I went searching at Princeton Wallmart if they had any leftover sleds, no go.  Will have to pick one up this week.   Bob
