I was planning on going out today in the Madison Lake area and was wondering the condition of the ice? Is it still plenty safe to drive on? I'm assuming so. If anyone has any info please let me know. Thanks and keep your stick on the ice!

Well I'll answer my own questions in case anyone is wondering. There is still plenty of good ice. It was definitely slushy with the warm weather last weekend but there was still 20+ inches of good solid ice.

I have relatives who own a bait shop on the west side of Faribault & they would be glad to give the latest info they have. Give them a call @ Nagel's Bait (507) 334 - 8341, I'm sure they have customers that are on the area lakes just about everyday. It's a business that's been family owned for at least 2 generations. Check their homepage too

I was wondering the same thing for tomorrow.  Is it pretty slushy on top?

I was in the fairbault area yesterday went to french and Roberds there was 27" plus everywhere we drilled. Some spots were slushy on top, access at french was slushy and had ruts from earlier this week when it was warm. Roberds access was better if you made your own trail the main one people were using was rough.

Looking for an ice update in the Faribault area, even though I know there is rain in the forecast for tomorrow. Looking to get out Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday if possible. I'm sure by now the landings have opened and I'm not worried about being able to drive on the ice; I'll walk just as easily. Thanks for any info!

Hey phishslayer,

Plans fell through and I'm home for Daddy daycare this week. It's a bummer because the past two days have been great! With the cold coming this weekend and next week, maybe I can get out next weekend!

Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      If you can find a Gen 2 9" touch get it. I love mine.

      Shimano Sedonas are work horses for the buck too.

      Charge your battery after every use. Your not getting enough charging when not running big motor enough. Other option is to move up a size in battery if room. I have ran Interstates for years with no issues.

      Hi - this may not be the exact best spot for this, but

      1). I flyfish, elk and deer hunt out of my simple, clean off grid cabin 11 m S of Ennis.
      Excellent elk, muley, whitetail, and pronghorn opportunities, E slope of Gravelly range. 2 m N of current Wigwam fire - no problem.I have more time than hunting partners and need solid, easy going buddies to hunt with, and or will time share swap with others for access to great hunting.

      2) I have 230+ acres of outstanding pheasant, whitetail, waterfowl, and some turkey just E of Granite Falls MN. If you are local and have bear, deer, turkey, etc., opportunities, especially closer to the Metro, Let's Talk. This land is also for sale, I'm tightening up my footprint and want to build on my Bozeman lot on the Gallatin.

      I am very interested in:
      - whitetail tree stand, including doe management opportunities (especially local for me in zone 610 MN) - gotta fill the freezer!
      - spot and stalk anything anywhere
      - turkey
      - winter southern or warm weather opportunities, including fly fishing..pigs?

      I'll give the noise supressor a try Bob.  Both units were purchased at the same time.    yoppdk- I checked my unit and I don't see any such setting on the 998.  There is a low battery alarm setting, but that is already turned to off.

      This terminal could have been comprised, cracked or corroded to cause this.

      Geese are beginning to flock as I seen a number flying over the past couple days.
