You can also get minnows at the BP station in Cecil.
Going back a page to the question about driving on the lake. This picture should answer that question.
You can drive anywhere on the lake...you just might not stay dry or be able to drive off.
Yes use caution. I received an obnoxious PM on January 1 saying I am "never constructive" and an "a**hole" by someone who was upset with me for a recent post where I reminded everyone there was open water near the island, etc. after he/she/it had stated they saw "trucks driving everywhere" when there was 11" of ice.....wow.
This has been a messed up year and I’ve been watching guys push it with the vehicles all season so far. For the safety of yourselves and those around you, including kids fishing, please stop pushing your luck. Walking a bit is healthy. Let’s make the best of Mother Nature having an attitude this year. Just be safe please.
