I'll second Blitz, the ice was pretty slick Wednesday. Probably worth cleats if you're not sure-footed or want to play it safe.

With more folks coming to town, I'd rather support safety in the name of good sport. If you're coming of Noffke's, you'll see tree line to the east but most action is north, north west. Avoid going straight north beyond 1.5 miles, as noted in other posts, that's heading toward the spring, roughly, by Norwegian Bay. Best to go northwest for safer ice, plus the vehicle group will give it away.

I was drilling with a Trophy Strike 8" 120v. I made it through without the extension, but it would have been nice to have. Others who have difficulty bending over may want an extension.

Not participating this year, so good luck to all on the chain this year!

There's pretty much only one crack on the lake. It runs west of Spruce Lane in east of noffke's. It runs straight kind of Northwest until it hits the cane beds in the middle of a lake and then it switches to the west to Indian Point and continues West a bit towards the west side of the lake from there. I was out there today for a bit they're getting a few fish off from Indian Point to the South and that's where the big group was today. Almost no one else anywhere else on the lake. So to get to that group you would have to come off noffke's or off the county at Landing. Ice is slick on top, not as bad as Bago is as there was a bit more snow cover still up here when that rain hit and it stayed a little cooler and, but still pretty slick so take it easy.

Icestank: We were out last weekend. No extensions needed for us. Ice was around 20".

I see one posted on 2/7 but they may not help with current conditions.  However, still helpful.

Am planning on heading out from Neffke's this Saturday and Sunday. Though we went out from there last weekend with our vehicle, I'm a little apprehensive this weekend. Are there any decent walk-out spots from that area where I wouldn't need to drive out? Thanks.

Just wondering if anyone is using extensions on their augers so far. Don't wanna make the trek out on Saturday then go and have to buy an extension. Thanks!

Just a heads up, do not try to drive around the north-south crack on the Southside near the shoreline. There is a new small heave that's hard to see that runs parallel to the Shoreline that I went over last night and damn near dropped my truck in. Also the heaves near Indian Point are moving and that roadway May soon be negotiated. Please inform others you may know
