South bay, as I said, along Hwy 8.

I was out over the weekend and I found ice anywhere from 2 to 3 inches to 6 to 7 inches. Someones gotta be the first one to drive out, but it ain't gonna be me. Hopefully they don't make the news.

I stopped in at the bait shop & he said there was also one on the south bowl of Chisago Lake.

Gutsy, yes.

Maybe he drilled before he went out & it was fine.

TRUE STORY : About 20 yerars ago, I once drove my Pick-up truck across the Mississippi River on DEC 14th where it leads into Big Winnie...

It rained HARD the night before, the water was coming up around the side windows. My Dad said "A little more to the right - it's shallower over there".

I about flipped out, turned my truck around and headded back to shore & drove around to West Winnie Campground.

NEVER so scared in my life. Probably only 6-7 inches, but I didn't go through...

Frankies said the water is down low enough and parking at sunset point was not a problem because it is mostly shore now. I was parked there monday along with two pickup trucks. That is about all the parking space over there now. I noticed a lot of the no parking signs are down on the road to sunset however my guess is you still cant park there.

and the bad thing is now someone else will see the tire tracks and continue the idiozim, sad thing is that whole bay is all milfoil, I didnt feel safe out there last year with 16 inches of ice.

I thought I saw that too but didnt stop to see the crazies, guess I could always slow down and do that more grin.gif

Does he have a plow on the front of that thing?

Plus he is parked right next to the house. Unless this is this person’s first year on ice, but you got to know how thick the ice is.

The big problem, (like stated above) will be the "truck" that drives out on his tracks. I guess they get what they get. Hope he catches something?

Alright I know its to his or her own risk, but when do we say STOP!! I saw them out there again today but this time in a Maroon Minivan. I am at a loss for words, If I went out fishing and saw this guy/gal/person come driving out I would just have to leave, I woudlnt put myself at risk to try and rescue this @(#O&$ and I woudlnt want to put anyone else in danger. What do you guys think about it? UGH ....

I get driving out if you've drilled your holes all the way out, know the depth of the ice, whatever.

I would NOT be parking RIGHT next to the fish house though.

The house a decent sized perm., so that's gotta be heavy, plus the weight of the minivan right next to it.....

I suppose a guy could call the local C.O. and tell him about it...just say you're concerned about the safety of that person and others around. Perhaps this would fall under the jurisdiction of the C.O. and he/she would have a good suggestion on what to do. Just an idea.

I would say Sheriff! If someone goes threw, they are the first on the site and then fire and rescue. Thin ice is a Sheriff concern. I do not think they will do much. They sure are not going to go out there.

It does not make this any better, but it looks like a Caprice or a Cadillac. I do not know why his house has not flooded yet? That much weight, it’s got to be pooling up water around this house!

I believe this part of the lake was froze over fairly early. I believe people were out fishing a week prior to the snow storm even...so perhaps with all the cold temps we had prior to the snow, that created sufficient ice in that bay to handle the weight of the snow (and car/house)...so unless you actually know the thickness of the ice...who's to say its unsafe. Although with everything we know about other ice conditions in the area its normal to question it. Has anyone been fishing out in that bay recently and know the ice thickness?

Where I was fishing there was 7 to 8 inches of ice. I guess the main part of the lake(Chisago)didn't freeze over until just before the first snowfall so I imagine the ice could still be considerably thinner in some areas. I did notice there is still some wet areas under the snow as I walked out.

I saw a guy pull his house out with his truck yesterday.shocked.gif

He came over and talked to me to see how thick the ice was where I was at and he explained that he has been plowing a road from day one. He has a good 12 inches of ice on his road and the area where he pulled his house out to. He did express some concern that his driving on the ice might give others the wrong idea and went on to say that now that his house was out he might just use his atv to run back and forth until the ice was thicker.

Your right about that bay freezing first, or atleast appearing to, its nothing but milfoil over there, and the only public access to the lake is on the other side so he would of had to drive all the way out there, Big green froze over just before the snowfall too. I guess we will just sit back and wait and see what happens. I hope this doesnt ruin someones holidays .... frown.gif

He's a resident who lives right on the south bay. He plowed the road out from his property.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.
    • FishinCT
      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button? 
    • Bigfatbert
      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
