Is the ice safe enough to drive out to the middle of the lake with a truck??
Going to get out soon and used to do ok on walleyes early or late day. Curious if I can drive too or stick with the sled?
Couple weeks ago I drove around there was 14 in of ice.
Does anyone know the ice thickness here? Driving up from a 3+ hours away, wondering if I should be planning to stick close to the landing or if I can drive out a ways? Any bad areas to avoid?
Does anyone have a recent water temp on this lake? heading up this weekend!
Campground landing or the Sand landing on the North end are other options...
Big, deep, and clear lakes are still holding onto some ice (Fence, Trout, etc). Plenty of lakes are open though but no piers are in yet.
Big Musky landing had an ice heave that ruined the pad. All the concrete is heaved and it's not usable. No idea when that will be repaired. So for the time being no one will be launching there (off CTH N).
When I arrived at the boat ramp on Monday, there was a man and woman getting ready to put their kayaks in at the ramp. As I was getting everything unloaded, they said that they were on Star Lake the day previous. I told them that Star now has spiny water fleas and that they should not put their boats in because of possible contamination. They totally ignored me and put in anyway. Probably should have called WDNR hotline. Assholes.
Heading up this weekend to fish and could use a little help. Looking to get on a walleye bite and heard it could be a good night bite and I'm willing to try. Not necessarily asking for an exact spot, but looking for what depth to Target the walleye along with structure types. Also wondering what bait to buy or a hot color. Seems to be a clear lake. I assume bass and panfish should be up shallow. Pm if possible and thanks in advance for any info.
