Collinwood can put out some nice eye catches. At times you can also catch some better ones also. smile.gif

How is the ice out there? I have only fished Collinwood in the summer while camping at the campground.

Thinking about Collingwood for this weekend. What is the ice thickness,safe enough to drive a truck on. Any bad spots to worry about.

HuchBucks, you must have been far far away from my house, we havent got one over 12" in two weeks. My house is the white one on Ashwill's point in about 12 FOW. Black F150.

What I want to know is what is with that sign on the south side. I didnt get close enough to read it but it looks like someone put a thin ice sign in the middle of the lake. Dont konw if it's for real or what. Saw a ATV ride right up to it and read it yesterday so the ice cant be that thin. Anyone know what it's about?

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
