Can anyone tell me how thick the ice is around McGregor/Lawler area. Thinking about going up north this weekend.

it all depends on what lakes your looking at. most small - medium size lakes have 2-5 inches with a couple around 4-6 inches. the bigger lakes are still very border line. most people....the smart ones at least....are still walking on all lakes. you will be able to fish, just check the ice and check it often

rscabin,
since sherrif is a small lake I would think the ice should be good, but then again, it is a very deep lake, and probally spring fed, so be carefull. what do you usually fish for on this lake? I have fished it only in summer, have marked many fish, but they were unwilling to bite. I am on fleming lake, which should be going this weekend, and I am expecting at least 8 inches of ice here.

knoppers my nieghbor has a place in Lawler. He was going up this weekend. I was thinking of going but something came up and did not make it. I was just wondering how thick the ice was. Ive been hereing scattered reports on different thickness's. It is probably going to be ready here in the south metro area by next weekend. Let me know how well you did. Maybe some time I can run in to you and say hi. Ever been in Jackson hole taveren in Lawler.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.
