I'm heading up to long point and was wonderin how they have been doing around there. Anybody know how much water is on the ice. We are taking our 2 wheel drive because we dont own a 4 wheel drive. Any tips and advice would be appreciated.

I was there last monday, we had poor fishing but I guess it had been good before that. We were in 35 feet of water. I heard someone in 28 ft. did ok. There was no water on the ice and very little snow. There are a few pressure ridges but should be no problem for you to get to were you want to fish with a two wheel drive vehicle. there were cars out on the lake. Good Luck

child23; We were at LP last Tues. started in 32' nothing, moved into 28' and filled out with walleye, returned several including two 22"ers. Wed. a couple of friends were up and fished 33', kept 6 walleye and filled the rest of the limit with sauger, never know where they may be. Good luck.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
