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...

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
