Hi Everyone, Yes, Wonder Lake is a Private Lake. Lake Users are subject to ALL applicable rules and regulations of the MPOA, US Coast Guard, IEPA, IDNR and the Village of Wonder Lake. The IDNR and VWL will be out on Wonder Lake this Sunday for the Radar Run as well. NOTE: The west bay has the dredge pipeline and pump station still in place. Stay away from there...ice may not freeze like other years due to dredging. Reminder watch for Rip Rap. Caution flags and stakes are visible. Use Caution when ever out on the Lake. Big Smile

yeah pinboy thought that was weird myself. Grabbed for my license a few times. He never asked. I'm assuming from the looks of the thread that he was enforcing a state law. We all know how much money our state has. Lol I'd still be asking my lawyer (not the fish) lol, about it. Technically the lake was not private that day though. So i think you eat face on that one. Sucks Puke Sorry. Glad you and the guy were able to work out the ran over tip-up. Big cudo's to the Wonder Lake Sportsmans club for the event and getting the auger back to joe. Back after em today! Oh yeah, decent heave west of fire ball island. You hit it and your getting wet. A few others started yesterday, nothing to worry about yet. Keep ya posted! From the sounds of things a lot of changing ice conditions on a lot of lakes. Keep your eyes open out there and have your safety gear with ya. Example, fished two spots yesterday with 5-6 in. of ice. Every were else was 10-12. Gonna be a tricky thaw when it comes. Tight lines

Lol, I've had my share run over as well, this time I won. I saw the guy hit it, jumped on the quad and chased him down. He was a nice enough guy and replaced it with 1 of his. We made sure they were well marked after that... Thanks for the link rks. Im pretty sure I found a way to keep the damage on the ticket minimal. It just ticked me off they walked into to lake from between 2 houses, past 2 other groups of fishermen and right up to the sleds. They never checked a single fishing liscense. I always try to be respectful....

Pinboy, lots of states now require insurance on snow mobiles, ATV's, and even golf carts used off your property.
