    Thick enough that multiple vehicles are parking next to each other without any concerns.

    Bring the boat. It is ice free! On a serious note, there are planes landing on it, cars driving all over the place on it, and a lot of people having a great time ice fishing. I think you'll have a blast if you go.

    Default thanks

    Thanks for the replies guys. I wasn't concerned whatsoever, as I was just curious. I went out there today with my dad and some friends, and we did flatout awesome. We even had a dolly that was so huge, it broke our friends 10 lb line! It was the biggest fish that ive ever seen in finger lake by far. The sad part was how close we were to getting it. We had his head out of the hole, and then as we were pulling him out, he just popped off! Even though the line was 10 lb test, I dont think that the fish would have actually gone 10. But from what we all saw of him, he was in the 5-7 pound range. Other than that, it was alot of 14-16 inchers, and a WHOLE lot of tiny 5-6 inchers.

    Default Nothing special

    Caught a fair amount of fish. Saw lots on the camera but they were very finicky. Typical for this time of year.

    Talking Ice

    I am headed out this week to punch 12 holes into Kobuk Lake for a Science fair project. We will be taking water samples every 3 feet down to the bottom and we are expecting 4-5 feet of ice. Anyone want to drop a hook or 2 after we are finished with the sampling? I understand that the Sheefish are running!

    Seem like such a waste to punch holes and not drop a hook or two!
