Mr. Wizard

We're changing plans for next weekend. Not going to Lake of the Woods with sleds to fish the reefs because of the reports of all the water and slush on the lake. So... can we fish Ottertail County lakes or is there a foot of water on top of the ice?

Was out today. It's brutal. Bring your knee high rubber boots. Was on two lakes. Both the same. Lots of water and no fish. No snow just water. the ice was rock hard. nothing soaking in yet and the rain's not helping.

Went out to 3 area lakes and they were dry. About 16- 19 inches of ice yet. The ice around the shorelines though is melted through.

Should I pack some 2x12's for my trip up there this weekend? I'll probably fish Dead Lake and some surrounding smaller lakes. Any thoughts on getting onto the good ice, or any lakes that are off limits from poor ice throughout and not just at shore? Thanks in advance.

I was out today with my wheeler. Got out on a north shoreline, so the ice is ok for the most part. I was surprised at how much thickness was lost. I had about 14 inches where I was. Sun will wreck it quick this year. We never really got much over 20 inches.
