Carsons Bay (Lake Minnetonka)


Recommended Posts

Anyone know how thick ice is on Carsons Bay? I seen lots of trucks out there today but yet that doesn't mean anything. I would like to pull my wheel house out with my truck this week. Seems lots fo people fishing Carsons and down by Deephaven Beach.

I was out Saturay morning. I had 14" to 16" of ice where I was. But I didn't check ice thickness where you go onto the ice next to the bridge; that's the place I am most nervous about. Yep, quite a few light trucks and SUV's driving out on the ice. There were 2 SUV's about 100 yards from me. I was thinking I might start driving my Taurus out by the end of this week, but I think I might walk out one more time before I drive just to be absolutely sure. And I want to check the ice by the bridge where I drive on first.

My buddy was standing near the bridge when we were packing up last weekend and walked over to the ramp right next to the bridge and the ice gave way on foot. Just a matter of time before someone drives to close to the bridge and gets wet. 14.5 where I was at saturday.

That's why the approach worries me a bit even though people were driving out there. Two weeks ago there was open water directly under that first bridge span.

If you are worried about the access by the bridge, just head north and put in up towards the yacht club.

I wouldn't drive down the bridge access, it was open water 3 days ago, and has frozen over since. I wouldn't trust it anymore

Scary Area.
