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.

      Stick in mud, any sightings of perch in your area at all this winter?  Just curious, if there are any year classes making it to adulthood.

      Flash, welcome to FM!   I asked a coworker this morning about Cass for you.  He has a cabin there and fishes it weekly year round. As far as colors go, he said natural colors.  Gold, silver, browns, oranges as well as glow green are the best in that order. Reds, chartreuse and red/pink glows are lowest on the list. Obviously transition areas tend to be the best locations.  Deep vs shallow tends to be day to day season long. Hope this helps some.

      Naw, heard from others that he was just bored and kept checking everyone that was out that night.

      Had a CO come out to our shack two years ago on a pretty cold night, just as we were sitting down for dinner, & that SOB just stood in the doorway, left the door wide open as he checked all of our licenses...  all the heat in the house GONE, our food went cold, give our licenses back, then on to the next shack--- No smile, no nothing, guy had zero empathy or consideration for anything it seemed.   Its basically the golden rule though> just treat others the way you want to be treated.  Just don't be a dick.

      Great fishing everywhere?  Please give me the resorts and depths of the great fishing as that will help me decide where to go.
