Still Driving?

7 posts in this topic

Just wondering if people will still be driving on the lakes today, and if you are, how much longer will you be driving out?

Still driving BUT accesses are going to be unusable very soon. Ice is still plenty thick once you get out and with the cooler weather on tap this weekend should be OK. 4wd is a must. ATV is even better.

There's a good sized area of open water today at Sportsmans access on Prior Lake. People are parking on the street and walking out.

Anyone know if there are any access points on Minnetonka or White Bear that are still ok for vehicles?

I drove on WB last night out of Bellaire (south shore & shaded) so the access is all right but I know I won't be driving out there again. The big problem is that the water has penetrated about 12" so there's only around 10-12" good ice!!! I was surprised to see a large series of holes, I drilled on 2/18, all wide open!! crazy.gifshocked.gifconfused.gifshocked.gifcrazy.gif !!

Fishing was ok but I don't like having to wait till 8 for the bite. I know I'll be hoofing it next time out...

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.

      I just went through it. Now my pup is a giant lab, but it is fitting. There is a lot of knowledge here with raising pups. Just ask and you will get great help

      I've tried to look for the source of this supposed information that the crayfish in Vermilion are high in mercury and same as the others - found nothing but stories like this on forums, etc...  In fact, I've typically found posts from someone on different forums, same name with that story.  In those cases, they state they talked to "someone" at the DNR in Tower who gave them that information...  roughly dating back to 2002-2005 time frame.   I'd like to think if this were actually true, there would be some data for the public to see to support it...   In the meantime, we catch em and boil them up every year.  Good eating when done right!  We figure we eat them once or twice a year, shouldn't be an issue...
