    I feel like the ice is plenty thick but I'm not gonna be the first, who's gonna take the plunge?

    Not a good place for cars or trucks.

    Too many gas pockets around selfridge, one being right in the canal that takes you out to the bay, have seen it open a few times from quads.

    I remember seeing a work truck in that gas pocket on the way out of the canal many years ago. Who remembers that?

    I remember the truck going in. Like others said.............there are too many gas pockets out there for a car or truck. Just a few years ago there were two 4 wheelers in the drink just outside of Anglers Point. YOU are a braver person than I am if you try.

    can't say i remembered that but i have driven my old suburban down that ramp a few times.

    one time the guard told me parking was full and i said ''the entire lake is filled with trucks?''

    he waved me through.

    There's been a guy driving a full size pickup all over Ginos and metro for the last week. Ice over 12" in those areas.

    I found this link on the Sag bay forum

    http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/ice/thickness.html

    It's been a few years, but I drove my 3/4 ton Chevy probably 1.5 miles out from the Crocker launch.

    Disclaimer: Drive at your own risk , I am by no means responsible for you going in the drink. ;)

    Couple years back a kid took mom and dads minivan for a spin, decided to go down the ramp at selfridge and went in at the entrance of the lake.
