Vehicles through the ice

2 posts in this topic

Just a word of caution to be safe out there and use caution and common sense out there on the ice. A vehicle went though on the sandbar between Big and Little Detroit this either last night or this morning. This is a known area of poor ice every season.

I also heard reports on Big Cormorant having vehicle(s) through the ice from the local CO.

With the increased weight of the snowpack on the ice, in addition to increased UV light, and warmer temps and its associated snowmelt runoff this time of year, the ice is highly stressed. Use caution around areas of in/outflow and high currents, as well as areas with emergent vegetation and public accesses. These are the first areas to start deteriorating...

quick update:

two vehicles went through the ice on big/little detroit. on my way home from work today, a co-worker and I checked it out on our sleds. One area is marked by a christmas tree; the other area is about 25 yards south of the marked tree.

      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.
