I wanted to share with you the ice coming off the lake today. You could hear the ice this evening with the winds blowing hard before the rains came. It was truly Mother Nature at her finest!

Fisheyes,

All of those pictures were taken on the east and south east side of the lake. With forecasted winds out of the NW today the lake will be pushing even more ice up down there.

If you do get down this way don't be afraid to stop in and introduce yourself.

Cool pics, reminds me of when I got stuck in garrison and couldn't go to work in the cities because 169 had a 10' wall of ice blocking it... and going around isn't fun, so just stay up north. cool.gif

Orlip, you were right on the money brother! I will buy you a beverage in the near future. Hopefully when we meet up at a FM gathering. You nailed it! Good luck out there.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
