I drove out Sunday, my ice scoop handle was about 3-4 inches underwater when the scoop was at the bottom of the ice. Guessing about 18 inches, mid lake.

What access are you using to get out? Slush issues? Areas you should watch for? Fish this lake almost every weekend from the boat. Looking to ice fish it for the first time. Any other advice would be appreciated.

I drove out the canoe access just south of Mousseau bay on the west side. I didn't come across any ridges or slush on my way out to the middle of the lake. I wouldn't pull my ice castle out this access because of the lip you have to go over getting onto the lake. I fished in 26 feet but only got four tiny eyes from 10 to 12 inches. It looked like a pretty good group of houses down in the south part of the lake by slug island. Driving was super easy without a road on Sunday but we have had about 7 inches of snow since then, might be getting tricky.

As they say ice is never "safe". But I would be comfortable driving any set up out there now. Plus -25 again tonight. My main concern now would be avoiding any pressure ridges that may/or have formed.

Can you use the Jones bay access to get on to the main lake with a truck, or is that channel to sketchy?

I have been out of Jones Bay many times, and I always hug the north point. That is where you will most likely find the road anyway. Stay away from the middle where the boat channel goes, is what I have been told.

Thanks Rockyhook! Are there any other traditionally bad ice locations on Pelican you can think of that I should stay away from?
