I'm looking for this information too. The 60+ temps today had to affect the ice and lake access.

I want to be safe so please help me and tunrevir out. smile.gif

people are still driving trucks, but the 4 wheeler is going to be the preferred method of travel from here on out. ice is still thick, just watch the cracks as they will move on you this time of year.

Just got back from mille lacs, plenty of ice, lots of trucks out. We used the wheelers as precaution. We found average of 2+ feet of ice.

I know they were driving out of Lybacks for sure still, we opted for the wheeler and snowmobiles. If you want to get across the crack you'll need something besides a vehicle.

Fished the North end today and there were a few trucks on the ice but most people were on 4 wheelers.

23 jumbos for four guys. Lots of lookers.

Awesome day to be on the ice.

Tunreir,

I am struggling with not being able to be out there fishing over the past two weeks. Been really busy with Appeldoorns Park Model Cabin Sales (www.appeldoornsparkmodelsales.com).

I was over at the lake on Friday afternoon and there are a number of fisherman out chasing those JUMBOS. I have talked to a number of fisherman on Friday and there is still 24 inches of ice. But I caution everyone that driving a vehicle out on the ice now is extremely dangerous!!! The higher temps along with now this rain will weaken the ice BIG TIME! Four wheelers, Wilcrafts and smaller motor craft and walking is advised.

The report was very good. Some anglers getting some really heavy buckets of Jumbo perch. The report is that smaller spoons with minnow heads and fresh water shrimp along with waxies and larva (Red) has been the bait of choice.

Again, with the rain we are getting now with those warmer temps be careful out there as the ice will start to lose its density and hardness. It may look like enough ice but the spring ice doesn't have the same hardness as early fall ice.

Good Luck and Fish On!!!

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report

      Chuck was a real, authentic, honest to goodness good guy.  He loved being on the radio and you could tell.  Radio lost a friend.  RIP Chuck
