closing elysian to night driving

Does anyone know about the law the county wants to enact, it a ban on night driving on the lake, the only place you could drive is 30 ft fron shore around the whole lake. Thats for snowmobils, trucks and atvs. There is a meeting on Dec. 28 in LeCenter. How do you feel about it???

I am not one to limit people's rights for the stupidity of others, but i think this is a good idea. The lake has caused deaths recently and limiting night traffic would greatly reduce the risk. Other lakes that have aeration systems have similar laws, like Lura. the lake is not that great of fishery at the moment but it should recover and for the avid fisherman, limiting vehicle traffic is great for fishing. Less people, and the ones that do go out go primarily to fish.

I thought all lakes with aerators had that law once they were turned on. I know Loon lake is like that. I myself hate it. I can be staying the night on the lake (and not driving it after dark) and still have to go park my atv on shore for people to steal or mess with.

i am thinking that maybe the dnr should look at how they manage this lake and the money might be better spent on other lakes. If I remember right the people that died on the lake were not ever fishing at all. Its the ones that "get lost" that are taking the rights away from others. Some people die on other lakes every year do they close them to night travel after that

It's not the dnr that gets involved with the regulations of travel on public waters rather it's the county that inacts the ordinance that regulates when and where you can drive on the lake.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
