Does anyone know the ice conditions on Red Rock. Can I drive on it? Is there places to watch out for? Thanks for the help. Dont want to be a floater or sinker.

Must be no one knows anything. I guess I will see if I sink on Saturday. Plan on staying away from the crowds. It might be a nice quiet place.

Yeah...It might be nice and quiet because the fishing sucks. Save yourself a wasted day and go over to Lower Prior if you want to catch some decent bluegills and have a chance at a northern.

I was there in early Jan. and did pretty well with the crappies. It was slow but steady.

I hope you don't take tj's opinion as gospel. Seriously.

I was on red rock last weekend. We drove out and found 14-18" of ice. 14" was over the deep hole of 18'. The fishing was okay that day but I only stayed for 2 hours midday cause my 4yr old got bored. I think that if you'd like to catch a nort than RR would be a great place. Keep a few while you're at it. The pannies are small but steady.

You can go to 100 lakes in the metro where you can catch small panfish all day - My point is that if you want to catch some nice sized fish, to keep or release, Red Rock is not the best choice. I don't give a rip where you guys fish, but I fish lakes where I can get some fish that are respectable, and I would consider it a waste of time fishing Red Rock when IU can shoot down to Prior and catch some very nice big bluegills mixed in with all of those little ones, plus the water clarity is great so I can watch them on the AquaVu and have more fun.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.
