Hi JP, The general report that I've been hearing from Hubert is 9-11 inches. But you know how ice goes, I'm sure that there is more or less in some areas of the lake. Overall it sounds like it is in pretty good shape. Good Luck out there.

Alrighty then. Stick to different lakes.......what is up with these lakes this year. I think they are just hungry and looking to swallow up people and things.

FYI! The pressure ridge is about 20 yards off the Access from what I could tell it is about 75 yards long. Saw a few cars out. I chose to walk. Didn't have a bite.

Thanks, It looks like the lows next week are going to be in the teens and below. How many inches are out there right now? If I have to bring the portable I guess I have to. I built a house on wheels and have not been able to get it out yet. The only problem with portables is when you want to spend time with more then 2 people, you have to fish in separate houses. Has anyone been catching any walleye's out there? I used to catch several when I was at home. Never limits, but when you got one it was larger then 3 pounds.

10-11 in. ice, but its not uniform everywhere. There are some ice ridges around the access. If you have ATV with a hitch and a house on a trailer a lot of people are pulling the larger houses out that way. Theres always a few wallys in Hubert. Heard some ar geting crappies but there elusive, have to look for them.

I weighed the house and it was 3100 #'s. I do not know what they typically weigh, but with that and a four wheeler it would probaby be as much as my suburban. Are they fishing the usual spot. I can remeber when I was a kid there used to be tons of houses out there now there isn't more then 20. Wish I lived up there, but you have to make a living or be retired.

Here is a thought. Make a living up here. Just a thought.

Sorry, I didn't mean to put down anybody. I see there talking below zero weather for lows at the end of the week. My dad went out there last night for the first time and caught a couple northerns and lost a walleye. He said there's only 6 houses. Has anybody tried on the bar towards the middle of the lake, straight out from the boy's camp? I caught 2 nice walleye's out there once.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
