    How far north?

    still Twenty inches of decent ice although when we drilled our holes, the slush cone was "snow cone" consistency

    wish we would have taken a photo of the back end of the Wilcraft ... it was completely packed with slush

    How far north?

    Fished RUSH LAKE (Pine County MN) APR 20, 2013 about 12 feet of open water between shore and ice water was only about a foot deep when we got to the ice we were able to just drive through the water and right up onto the ice about six to eight inches of snow on top ... with one to three inches of slush in the bottom half of the snow layer There were two guys out there on foot; mid-shin high dairy barn boots would be sufficient to both; get out to the ice and then deal with the slush on the ice
  6. I certainly understand that some would rather be sitting in a boat than on the ice. But remember; if you're on the ice ... you can use two lines

    Better make other plans for opener up north !

    Gordie, I like the way you're thinkin' there
  8. Whether or not the conditions kill your plans completely depends on what you're willing (and prepared) to do in order to get to your fishing spot
