Wife Grief and Ice Thickness - need HELP

Recommended Posts

perch_destroyer

I know I'm not the only one. I'd like to fish Meadow or Saurer tomorrow. Dang news been blowing up everyone falling through this year. Wife giving me the business. Can I get some ice thickness reports for the DL area. From what I've read, its pretty much safe everywhere. laugh Anybody else getting the "business"?

Thanks, The Perch

I just got off saurer and there was 10-12 inches of good ice up in the finger to the right of the landing. There was a full size truck and a car sitting by one of the permanants out on the main part of the lake. You wouldnt catch me driving out there with that much ice. The eyes were biting pretty good in about 20 feet of water.

Plenty of ice out on most lakes. I've been measuring anywhere from 12 to 14 on the lakes I've been on. If she is so worried, have her buy you a striker suit wink they float smile

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
