Like Kelly said great if you are heading South East, fairly tough in any other direction.

Up down over stick the skis in a drift dig out, up down over stick the skis in a drift dig out over and over again. Some poor soul yesterday stopped and talked and was hating life, said his arms where sore after the ride and was scared to look in his portable.

Jonny, the only thing to remember is "When in dought, throttle it out!!" Then you won't get stuck. The fish house might take a beating though.

good luck with the truck. bring a sled and just run respectively, don't let these guys scare you. it's like sledding out in the middle of nowhere anywhere esle in the state during the cold, wicked, dead of winter!!! take your time and use your head before making a decision up there. good luck fishin!!!!!!!!!!!

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
