Spirit Thin Ice Warning

4 posts in this topic

20' of water East of Templar theres a spot with less than 6" of ice. Found it today when drilling a set of holes, first 3 were 25" 4th one hit the throttle and boom I'm through. A spring or something is creating air bubble from the bottom of the lake and causing this. I have GPS Coordinates if anyones thinking of fishing that area.

Yikes...was on Spirit all day, but not in that area. How big of an area you talking about? Thanks for the heads up.

Big enough to make you fill your pants when a tire goes in. Not sure exactly how big but was surprised when I hit the throttle and instantly went through. I know my Nils loves eating ice but its not that fast LOL. 25" in the other 5 holes I drilled in the shack, glad the weak spot was on the wifes side, shes smaller than me. Was cool watching the bubbles come up all day.
