Ice Conditions on Area Lakes???

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone been out on any area lakes in the last couple days? I was out on Buffalo, drove my truck right out there? Anyone hear of any dangerous areas? I am going out this week to a few area lakes, I will post what conditions I encounter.

It's pretty sloppy on Clearwater. Lots of water under the snow. The road BJ's plowed has about a foot of standing water. 4 wheel drive vehicles only. Seems to be getting better though as the snow melts, still sloppy but easier to drive in. Caught some nice crappies though, smallest one so far 10" biggest 13" most are 12". Also a mess of sunnies during the day.

      Another guy went through on Hubert yesterday near brainerd. That's the third guy ( all on different lakes) that went through this week! In that area! Please don't go out! If you do don't be to cautious. The crow wing county sheriff highly recommended not going on any lake ice no matter what type of transportation. Stay home and watch the ice melt. I know This is the vermilion area but it was a open thread. Sorry.

      I am familiar with big water and big wind, and do my best to avoid that combination.

        +1 It can get real nasty real quick out there.

      You are right, mille lacs would be the last place you would want to be in the middle of during wind or a thunderstorm.

      Talked to Tim a couple of days ago, he had room for 14 tables, now has 15 tables rented.  He squeezed in one more somewhere.  Another guy called after that and agreed to set up outside.  There will be several others outside, as well.  There may still be room outside, but I would say it's definitely filling up!  Should be lots of good stuff to pick from.  Happy shopping everyone!
