Does anybody have a report for the ice on Cross Lake in Pine City?? I'm wondering how the ice is coming along over there.

Guessing the ice conditions are similar to Pokegama's, I would wait until next weekend. You could try calling the bait shop in Pine City. I believe it's called Cedar Creek Outfitters. Sorry, I don't have the number handy right now.

Thanks for the tip. Not planning on heading over there in the near future, I just had success with some nice crappies there last year and was wondering how things were coming along.

Was shoppin around at cedar creek outfitters in pine city and the man workin there told me someone pulled their shack out onto crosslake with a car.
A lot of people out there on the ice fishin.
Also, I counted 15 portables on the ice straight out from the public access on west Rush. Too windy for me.
Drove thru Muffie's parkin lot on Pokegama, seen one small homemade portable but nothing else.
Mabey someone can give us a report ??

My Dad said the north end of Cross was wide open as of a week ago. Haven't heard anything lately though.

Cross lake had around 10-20 people on it last Saturday. Don't know how much ice there was then, but I saw ATV's and I'm sure the ice will be plenty good by this weekend!!

Been out on Pokegama quite a bit lately about 9.5 to 10 inches of ice. Been takin the wheler out lately and the fish are biting. Key is to find 17 feet on the south side of the island. They were a little finacy today but stilll managed some slabs.

Cross has a good 8 to 10 inches of ice on Friday. There were some cowboys testing the strength of it with their full size trucks. OK, probably will get away with it, just not for me. But, driving 50 miles an hour across it doesn't seem like a real smart idea.

Caught about 50 crappies ranging from 2 ounces to 11 ounces (most were about 6 ounces). Everyone else I talked to caught zippo. This kind of puzzled me because every hole I punched produced at least a couple fish. Oh well, I guess I had a hot hand or something.

And, there were a ton of people out there. So, if you don't mind a crowd, give it a whirl.

Thanks for the reply. Had some success out there last year with the crappies and I hope I can get into some nice ones again this year.

Ray, which part of the lake were you fishing? I only fished around 2 hours and caught a bunch of crappies and 2 eyes. Heard fishing was slow, which would explain all the houses but no one fishing in them.

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
