Saw a full size pickup and a car on the south bay on chisago today. With the new guard rails on 83 my guess is they were either locals or had to drive all the way across the ice. I drilled a couple of holes with my hand auger and dont think the ice was much more then 10 to 12 inches. Fishing was kind of slow out there but there sure were a lot of people out today. You would think that lake would run out of fish. There must be tons of them down there.

Euro- I have seen 2 full size pick ups out there... If it was the one off the point on the far south/east side of the lake. that guy owns that house and has been parking on the ice for about 2 weeks now.. If I remember its a white pick up... he just drives off his land.. that was the first area to ice up this winter... The other I have seen is a red Pick up on the far south/west end.. again a local who has plowed out to that point to which he parks...I'm guessing the car came from one of those 2 areas...

I fished chisago last evening and caught quite a few fish, nothing too huge but fed my wife, myself and my father last night... I found mostly 10" of ice but also found a rather large area of only about 5"...

Today on another area lake my father an I caught probably 300 crappies, all pretty small and they all went back in the lake.

I was out there today myself. It was another sunfish fiasco. I kept 10 very nice sunfish, but I bet I threw back 5 times that many. Still nothing but bass on the tip ups. confused.gif I saw one nice northern on the camera and the sunfish were stacked up all day. Great spot to take the kids.

The pickup was either red or an orange color and pretty old. I kept 10 sunfish as well for our family. Nailed two nice ones right off the bat then a bunch of tiny ones for about an hour then managed 8 more. I have been fishing totally portable a bucket and a 6 inch mora hand auger and the LX5. The poor bass I caught got to the top of the hole and got off the hook and was not smart enough to swim or sink down. Had to push him down with the auger so it could clear the ice. Dietz. I keep looking around for the black and red arctic armor suit you wear but never see you out there. I fished with you up at I believe it was Rush lake last year on one of the ice fishing get togethers. Did you ever get footage of you going in the cold water with the Arctic Armor? laugh.gif

I took my daughter and nephew out for a couple of hours and the sunfish were really snapping. Kept a few and had a great time. The cars are all locals with plowed access.

I talked to the guy in the red pick up. He claims he has 24" of ice on his road. There was 10" to 12" of ice where I was. Not sure how the rest of the lake is doing, but I imagine we'll start to see more vehicles on the ice very soon here.

I did get a report that there were a number of vehicles on Forest lake near willow point.

I heard they got tired of the drunks going out there at night with cars and trucks and causing all kinds of problems. Seems to me it was the year after the house was started on fire out there.

I heard it was due to the fact that the locals didnt like it and that there were to many close calls, I also belive they put it up right after the 2 or 3 trucks parked on the ice there and went in the drink.

I'm sure the residents had something to do with it(at least the parking bans), but I think the bigger problem came during late ice when the ground started to thaw out and snow started melting.

I know in years past there were areas that were just destroyed by vehicles driving up and down the hill and when one area became unusable they would start driving up other areas along the shore.

I'm sure with the snow melt and spring rains it became an erosion problem. It would have been nice if they gave some consideration to designating one area for vehicles, but like posted above it was also a safety issue. I think the speed limit is 50 or 55 through there and there isn't a lot of room.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, this may be my last weekend on the ice South of Hwy 210 . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
