    It's a good thing Storm Lake is as shallow as it is b/c they could probably touch bottom, especially if they were close to shore.

    Re: Truck Falls Through the Ice on Storm Lake

    I don't really consider this news, since trucks fall through the ice up here regularly.....
    But, who is dumb enough to try driving on Storm Lake right now? People aren't even driving on the lakes up here in Minnesota yet. (except for the ones that fell through)

    Iowa Fishing Report

    Storm Lake (including Little Storm Lake)
    Ice thickness on Storm Lake is around 3 to 4 inches out in the main basin with areas of open water. Ice is approaching 15 inches thick near the inlet where most of the fishing is taking place. White Bass - Good: Large white bass are being caught by anglers targeting walleye. There is fast action for the white bass when schools move through and then it slows down until another big school comes by. Crappie - Fair: Some nice sized crappie are being caught around the inlet area. Yellow Perch - Slow: Anglers pick up yellow perch on occasion when fishing walleye. Not a lot of perch get caught, but the ones that do are 9 to 11 inches. Walleye - Good: Anglers have been targeting the inlet and Frank Starr Park. A live minnow fished right off the bottom has been working well, or try using a super duper and a minnow head. Evenings and mornings have been the best. Daily bag limit at Storm Lake is 3 walleye: all 17 to 22 inch walleye must be immediately released, only one walleye over 22 inches may be kept.

    15" ice should support almost any truck that anyone would drive out there.

    Back in the day, we used to drive on the ice all the time without incident. But, back then, Ice was stronger, and colder..........

    Probably found a hole where it wasn't 15" thick.

    Re: Truck Falls Through the Ice on Storm Lake

    Kind of surprised you'd be able to drive a truck on Storm Lake this early in the year, figured it would be until mid-January. Guess he may have been a bit early.

    Holes are usually how one falls through ice

    Actually, I think it is the force of gravity.

    I know people do it all the time, but 15" of ice means nothing near an inlet to a lake. Flowing water means you will have a high probability of holes due to turbulence causing uneven freezing. Dumb move.
