Put on the dancing shoes!

Looks like lake effect will be coming to the area very soon, so cross your fingers and get a dancing.  Right after the lake effect we will be going into the deep freeze with night time temps well below zero.  Talked with a few guests that went out riding last night and they said trails are icey in spots with anything from not so good to fair/good conditions on the inner trails.   I still haven't been able to log into the trail cam and get video from it.  But at least it's still uploading pictures to the site.  Guess I'm going for a walk here pretty soon.

Here's Todays Video for..........

  1. PICTURE THIS!!!! Your riding down 4th lake cruising at 30 making your fresh tracks enjoying the view of million dollar homes wishing you had one. Then BOOM the ice starts crackling all arouned you, your track starts sinking, You gun it only to learn your track is dropping lower, You quickly panic and BOOM you find yourself in icy slush water with 50lbs of gear on. Your flapping those arms with nothing to hold onto. Your buudy is behind you not able to get to you, 30 seconds go by and your getting tired cold, your mind is spinning, YOUR GOUING TO DIE. STAY OFF ALL BODIES OF WATER, WE NEED AT LEAST 2 WEEKS OF SOLID COLD WEATHER. I AM A SEASONED ICE FISHERMAN, WHEN I SAY ITS SAFE THEN RIDE. ONLY 3 INCHES. WE NEED AT LEAST 5-6 FOR SAFE RIDING

    1. Thank you for the reality check! If you have no regard for your own life & the family you leave behind then please think about the firemen, emt's & police who put their lives on the line to rescue you. Also the people that have to recover your sled (at your expense) & the pollution to the lake from fluids in your sled. All because of stupidity!! He is right, when you see pickup trucks on the ice you can go too. I appreciate the fisherman's knowledge of safety! Please let us know when the 5-6 inches of ice has formed. Thanks!

    3. Don't know where you're getting your info, but the ice out away from shore is in the 6" range and above. Still some sketchy spots nearer shore or moving water. By Tues or Weds they should be good to go.

    1. A foot of ice for ?...... oh a tank.

      Delete
    2. No, not for a tank. for you and your friends that stop in the middle of the lake to tie your shoelace. then someone's machine won't start, or someone's had to many. maybe somebody lost a friend years ago.
