Same idiots on North Center I measured 6-8 but was told 8-10 (that's the reason I always check myself)saw a full size suburban out there. I will just walk for a while yet. No clear ice, I only found white ice out there. But the crappies where small but biting good for the kids. Saw one flag and and a northern pulled up.

I know one of those silly-me's, it would have been a black dodge ram. He says he measured 12.5 on fannie and 11.5 on Pauls. I was out spearing fannie on Sunday and measured 10". I told him to be careful fish lake only had 5" under the deep drifts on Sat.

When are people gonna learn not to drive fast on the ice. Just plain stupidity! Do they realize the wake they are creating underneath the ice and possibly cause a break in the ice and go down. Where is Mr. or Mrs. Green pants when you need them? Mr or Mrs Green pants is probably wasting time on something to small and not lecturing the morons speeding on lakes.

Who would be in control of the speeders on Chisago? That gets to be a little much. Its the Indy 500 trying to get out to the A-frame.

Yeah I get what you're saying, I am just venting. Also, I can't understand why the race to the A frame just for some 7" sunfish. I've been fishing that lake for 30+ years and the quality just isn't there anymore. But its still a good place to keep people entertained.

Hartley, let them all fish the a-frame. That's where all the fish are anyway! Really. Really! whistle

You can have my baitcaster when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers.
