Most lakes around central MN have 7”-8” of good clear ice. Problem is this wind blew all the snow in drifts so most lakes are bare. So it may be tricky for sled travel. I drove my 800lb ATV out yesterday with no issues.

After what happened out there last weekend, you'd have to be really stupid to even consider going out there for a long time.

Going out in a strong east or northeast wind is not a smart idea when the shipping channel is still open.  The water level fluctuates quite a bit from the seiche, even when there isn’t big winds.  Current comes in the entries raising water levels.   That level change creates cracks in ice and cracks with a strong wind going towards open water is a bad mix.  It was safe to be on the ice the preceding days before that happened but not that day.  

 

The harbor ia dangerous stuff folks.  Everyone stay away.

Not as many on harbor this morning; couple groups fishing without houses.  Fish was alright for us; talked to a couple people who didn't catch anything.

      Poor people shouldn't be going to RESORTS.   That's what makes them poor people.  They should be fishing the free waters near their home.  If it sucks, they should do something about it, whether that is lobby the government to have someone else pay to fix it, or earn some extra cash and go somewhere that has fish.     I grew up broke, and didn't like it.  So as soon as I could drive, I worked my tail to the bone and changed my situation.  I didn't go on my first "resort" quality fishing trip until I was 25.

      The forums used to be cool 5-10 years ago and people shared some, but yeah the last few years they have almost died when it comes to regional and lake information.  Even sharing information at the bait shop or tackle store has pretty much become taboo, its too bad sometimes as that was a good way to meet new people back in the day.    This 40 degree weather and sunny this weekend will probably wreck any chance of good ice soon.  Not happy about that to be honest.

      Say what you will but since ice fishing took off over 20 years ago several resort operators I know on Lotw have made out like bandits. Their business has almost quadrupled using the same cabins and adding some fish houses. I'm fully aware of what it takes to run these places.

      I have 5 Wild Game trail cameras and have had very good luck with them.  For the lower price they are a decent option.  I also have a Moultrie, Hunten, Wildview, Primos, and Bushnell.  My first 3 cameras ran on C-size batteries which were very expensive, so I replaced them with AA-battery cameras.

      Copied from the other side but still, congrats. 😊   10 years is a notable anniversary.  Congrats!    I was checking to see how many I recognized.  A fair amount.  Then I saw you did catch me.

      Just wondering if this may happen this year again?
