Ok.. I walke dout from a buds dock out on chisago and drilled a hole.. Still had about 19". But not 1" of solid ice. Shes going.. and she is going fast. There were areas that weeds had grown up threw the bottom and open water semi near the shore. And leaves that had sunk their way down from the top of the ice.

Thats it for me!.. It was a fun ice season!

On my way home yesterday I checked out the ice conditions of a few lakes.

Clear lake just south of Forest Lake on I35 was about 75% clear of ice and looks like it will be possibly clear by the weekend.

I then went by Martin lake and it was about 25% clear from what I could see and probably wont be passable by the weekend. It looked to be clear by the acces and the west bay but that was about it.

Should be too long....

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
