Dirt,

Welcome to FishingMinnesota.com.

I've heard it's OK. I'd be comfortable walking on it right now. I'd be a little hesitant about ATV travel. Just stay away from the river and you should be OK, but you probably knew that anyway.

Thanks bornofice, I was up there Sat. and checked it out. 5-6 inches where I was at. Fishing was excellent. Tons of ATV's and quite a few permanant houses out.

Hi DDawg, where do you fish on the lake in the winter usually? I own the lot where the snake river leaves the lake with the 30ft camper and have only ice fished the one time on Sat. Also I want to put a permanant house out next year, and I'm thinking that people don't usually drive out from the access straight across from me. What access do you suggest?

Hi Dirt
Theres 2 accesses we use one is on west side of lake its down airport road then to

      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.
