I just drove by there about an hour ago. The bay that flooded out 119 last yeatr is just about open and the main part of the lake the ice is about 25 feet from shore.

With the wind - it shouldn't be long - I noticed today the other side of 119 -the east side, where it was flooded over (Near the truck farm) there was a few hundred dead sunnies, one small pike and a small bass. Do you think that side had ice kill?

Last year after ice out I saw quite a bit of dead bullheads floating, and a couple of sunnies. So there might be a winterkill.

I am curious about boating out there. Assuming that I am carefull and take it slow, I should be Ok in a 16ft boat? Does it get super shallow or is there anything else to look out for?

Take it slow and watch where you are going very carfully. You might want to make you first trip on a calm day so you can see more of the dead heads. There are dead heads sticking out of 10+ feet of water in the middle of bays where you would think you would be safe. After a few trips out there you will figure out where the visible hazzards are and may be able to pick up the speed a bit. I have my boat out there in the fall quite a bit and have yet to hit anything, even in the dark. Just be careful, whatch for dead heads and it might not be a bad idea to have an extra shear pin and tools to replace it if you did hit something.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
