Hows the ice?

Any reports on ice conditions? Is anyone still driving out?

 

Haven't been able to get out and check, might drive around tonight and see what things look like out there if I have time.

I was out this past weekend around DL on 5 different lakes.  All the lakes were plenty safe for driving with most vehicles.  Average ice was 20-24" but we did hit one lake by Dent that had 16" of ice on it.  That didn't stop an SUV pulling a snowmobile trailer from doing 55 across the lake though lol.  Some shore lines are getting a little sketchy especially around current but this weekend might make some lakes pull away from the shore a little bit.  OBVIOUSLY check ice prior to driving on but I plan on driving on this weekend on the lakes I plan on fishing.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
