My wife and me went to the state park area and didnt catch a thing but seen a few walleye and perch and white fish. Fished 12ft of water, nothing. About 3pm we heard something loud and we were thinking it was a air boat, but no some idiot in a green mini van hauling a** past us ice was crackin water shootin up the holes. Wanted to ride over on my sled and give him a piece of my mind but figured the person had to be unstable any how to have a mini van 1 1/2 miles off shore. We're going to try again tommorrow. Good luck and watch out for green mini van!:yikes:

It's surprising how dumb some people can be. Going out that far in a van with the condition the ice is in can be considered borderline brain dead. I guess I'm just uptight with my regard for my life.

The van came out between state park and the Kawkalin river(oops spelled wrong sorry) Talked to alot of guys in the parking lot and no body did good except 1 guy that was fishing in 15 fow. He said he did okay but didnt give anymore info than that.

Yeah we were out there and seen that guy, *** was he thinking. Besides the entertainment, todays fishing sucked quite badly. Seen a few eyes, tons of perch, and of course a million or so Shad.

How thick was the ice? I remember growing up, going out in 4 foor buick w/dad on 8" of ice on lake Neppessing all the time. Didn't think nothing of it, figured he knew what he was doing. Was lots of vehicles on ice then. Been on the bay off state park in a vehicle many times, but not in recent years, which those thick ice times would return. Remeber being 4 miles out with buddy Joe's Dodge Dakota. Was in shanty and heard some rumbling, looked out towards main trail and saw a huge motorhome going out of sight for the weekend:yikes: A foot of ice will hold about any truck or car you want to take out, its just know that its that thick the whole way that worries me:help:

I was over on the bay for the
I was over on the bay for the past few days on the maiden voyage of the "Green Machine". An old buddy that I fish with and I went in on a green van that we made removable floors in. This thing is awesome because you never have to leave the comfort of the van with the heat pumping and the tunes blaring. We did not do very well but we plan to bring it out for a second voyage on Muskegon lake if the temps stay cold this week.
