Coming up there this next Wed. to try some ice fishing. How is the ice? Will we be able to get around in a Dodge Ram 1500 Quad cab 4x4? Or should we bring something lighter in weight to get around on the ice? Is there much snow on the ice? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

The thin ice south of the Pokegama bridge is caused by the current being concentrated by the sand bar that sticks out from the right side. The water under the bridge is deeper and the channel wider so the ice is always thicker there. If you go to the north end of Pokegama where Mud lake runs into it by Linda's Lakeshore there is always open water under the bridge on M. The same water flowing into the lake keeps going down stream to the dam. As long as you stay to the left side and away from the point the ice is thicker, but when we have rain and warm weather you have to be careful. Even in the middle of winter a snowmobile went through on the point so stay away from it.

Fished on Chetek and caught a nice meal of panfish suspended in 12-16 FOW. Plastics worked best for me. Hook must be covered completely to get a good hookup. In regards to the "crack" just south of gillans by the point past the bridge. Its always there, always thinner ice if not. Almost put the sled through last year as i forgot about it. Current or hot water or somethin. Under the bridge is normal ice as well as past that opening. Just be careful!

Wanted to do more of an ice update than a fishing report.  Went from Pokeg last night to over by Happy Days landing this morning and ice is at least a foot both areas.  LOTS of vehicles all over both places.  Not sure what's up with the crack south of pokeg but dont think anyone is driving under the bridge because of it.

Prairie Lake had 13 inches yesterday, but a lot of cracks.  People were driving on it.

Looking for an ice report. Other than the south side of Pokegama bridge, is it safe to drive on?
