The area the dive team was in was clearly marked with yellow tape a number of weekends ago. Basically straight out from the beach area. I fished this lake last Monday. Ice was showing signs of deterioration then. Top was soft and slushy. Time to put the ice gear away.

I fish this lake regularly.The Washington County dive team was there in early February.Guy started asking about fishing and I asked how deep they were.Don't believe they bothered marking,where they sawed a hole in 26 feet of water.Hope everyone is safe.
Polar bear when you walk on ice it’s YOUR responsibility to check with a spud bar or drilling holes on the way out . Nobody to blame but YOURSELF !!!!
Polarbear47, 2 weeks ago you posted on the Little Cedar thread about your son falling through the ice due to unsafe conditions and almost losing his life. It was caused by some moron driving on the ice. Today you fall in a nearby lake (Erler)and you put the blame on someone on L/L for not posting an ice depth all winter? Think about this, you had a problem 2 weeks ago and the temperatures have been above normal and the sun and wind have been doing what they do this time of year and yet you still went out. I agree with you about a moron causing you and your son to fall in the lake.........If you go out again tomorrow odds are it will be the same moron's fault when you go in the drink
46° - 50° F
I want to thank all of you who fished this lake (this ice season.) For not reporting the ice depths all season long. I fell through the ice today my first time in 30 years of ice fishing.
Now it's $5 a day to fish.Does Washington county have money problems?lol.There's more million dollar houses all over the county.A county worker stopped by last winter when I was leaving.Asked how fishing was said not much some little ones.He said they need to stock the lake.Yeah fat chance.
I would say 2 dozen people out. One group looked to be family with kids.
Nice catch low light always was best for me. I was here in December and was skunked and have been fishing here for more than 10 years.First time I was skunked in all that time.Was it a crowd out there?Holes everywhere? One thing the lake has going for it is it's deep making it a little harder to clean out.
Yes there are springs.This was a good lake until a few years ago.Now there are the same people every weekend.And nobody follows the 10 panfish rule.Been checked 4 times by Warden and never checks my pail.Overheard guy saying on his cell he had his limit.Two hours later he's still there.Was a great lake now fished out.Can't believe Leonard Yahr sold this gold mine to the public.What a waste.
