The Ice on Sat. the 9th was still about 2ft + or - a little. The shore line is the problem. find a way on and your golden. Be careful around the old ice heaves. Things change real fast so be extra careful and talk to the resorts before departing out anywhere!

The shorelines and pressure ridges are wide open and from what I've heard it honeycombed real fast out on the ice sheet. These people also were along the north side where there was snow cover for an extra week. They know the lake good and they were not going back out there again.

Thanks for the information....I have no intention of trying to ice fish any more, but I was using the info to judge when the ice might go away.

Thanks again

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
