I just wanted to know if anyone thinks that the ice is any good to at least drive a 4 wheeler out. After todays rain i do not know if i want to go out tommarow. I did not go out today because of the rain and the fog but i wouold like to know if anyone else went out today and how the ice was?

Thanks

I was out today on my four wheeler and it wasnt to bad, just watch out for old holes and some cracks that have turned into holes from water running back in them...

I just came back from looking at Hillman's access and was surprised at how good it was holding up. Nothing was broken up at all in the 0-3 foot range. Perhaps 2 cloudy days with rain was better then 2 days of sun?????? confused.gif Looking out there with glass's I even see some wheel houses out there at the 3 1/2 mile area. Buddy wasn't around, Shorty said he was out fishing with his 1 ton diesel. cool.gif

2 days ago the best bite was still out at the 5 1/2 to 8 miles area. I heard that some people hit some last night at 3 1/2 miles. I would feel uneasy driving a truck beyond the rough ice at 5.3 miles. The rough ice was packed with snow when it froze so I do not think there is as much strength there. Where the road went through it there are some huge potholes. West of the rough ice there is about 1 foot less ice and there was a lot more flooding and slush that refroze. When I was out there 2 days ago the refrozen stuff had really honeycombed. I would take a wheeler or sled to go beyond the rough ice.

Ice is in good shape for wheelers and snowmobiles. fished out of West Wind Yesterday. Had a good time and caught lots of crappie. Thanks to the professional guides they have there. looks like a good week for fishing coming up. Billy is the crappie King

Was out of hillmans yesterday with little luck... frown.gif

4 perch 7 walleye 1 crappie, but they were all nice fish anyways. Fished 6 miles out and got most of them there but moved in to 3 1/2 at sundown. The ice was pretty good until we got past 5 miles and then it got kinda ugly but still plenty safe for a wheeler or sled.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I noticed this morning that it had heaved out in Miller Bay kind of between the DNR access and Four Mile Bar. Really raising heck with my shore. Going to have to take a sledge hammer to my shore tomorrow so I can get out.

      any current report on ice thickness around palisade?
    • PRO-V
      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.
