Just wondering what the ice conditions are like out there? I'm somewhat assuming it's pretty thick, but then we all know what "assume" really means.... whistle.gif

I think that's why he said ice out will be mid-May......

Ice is good! Should be able to drive on it for another month unless we get warm weather consistently, for weeks at a time.. Not much biting out there though just a few small crappies!

Yeah, I passed on it for the weekend. I probably won't get there until sometime after the opener.

There is some awefully thick ice around this year though. I went south to the Mankato area and the 2 lakes I hit each had nearly 30" of ice!

Best I've seen in quite some time.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
