Independence Ice

4 posts in this topic

I am thinking of heading out this coming weekend to try and find the Crappies. Anybody been out to Indy lately with the warm temps that could let me know the ice conditions? Thanks in advance, and I will post how I do...

I drove by there this afternoon and it looked like you could water ski. I can't say that I would try it, if you do, bring waders and put chains on your tires.

The ice on Independence is still great i drove out with my blazer on wednesday March 14. i measured about 20" of ice and there wasnt much slush on the ice once you get out about 100 feet from shore.

And as he said the fishing wasn't great i caught 1 small crappie.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
