Brock: Check back 1 post "Crossing Pine". This should give you the information you're looking for. I'm headed up the same day, same area. Hope you have a good trip. Good luck and hang on. Bill

If you are going onto the lake at Wheelers Point you will go accross 4 mile bay to Pine Island. Adrians resort plows a road out from Wheelers Point and stake it out for travel. THe access fee is $5, a reasonable price to have good roads to travel. You might want to stop at Adrians and check with him if you have any other questions. We stay at Riverbend which is the next resort and use Adrians road as well. Bill

Went out last Sun. thru Tues. in a Cherokee on Adriens road. At least a foot. With the cold weather the last couple days, I've heard 17"+ past Pine. Should only get thicker.

I talked to Adrian's yesterday, we're going up Dec. 26th also, fishing in their houses. Plenty of ice now, everyone will be able to drive out . There is more than 16" of ice in the bay and out plenty far on the lake. Good luck. The fishing was great 2 weeks ago when we were there. smile.gif Stan C.

Adrian's Road Update!! (12-25-04)

The road/trail is in great shape. There is not much snow on the lake at all. There is bare ice with random drifting with the snow being 2-4 inches deep at the drifts. There are hardside houses everywhere up and down Pine Island. The ice is plenty thick enough in the area that all the houses are, I would say 16-20" in places. We ventured out to the outer edge of the houses, almost immediately at the end of Adrian's Rd and found a tad more than 12" of ice. In less than a 1/8th to a 1/4 of a mile the ice was 6-8" difference in thickness. I would under no circumstances head out into the great unknown without checking the ice along the way. If you are among the houses, no problem.

Brock, I was out yesterday. The road over pine is in good shape with one small crack right on the lake side of Pine. There are a ton of resort houses out and more being towed out every hour. I set up right at the end of the houses in about 28' and had steady action all day. It was just myself and I managed 29 fish in about 5 hours. The majority were under 12" but I did manage to keep 7 13-14". I caught nothing on the deadstick, every fish was caught using a 1/8 oz forage minnow tipped with a smalll shiner head. They really had to be coaxed off the bottom but once they chased it up they almost always hit it. I'll be up again on thursday to give it another shot.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
