A guy told me a long time ago that he drilled a hole at Gross and the water level was several feet below the ice. Don't know if they drain the lake at times after it is frozen, you would think that if they did they would not allow ice fishing
Same fairy tale every year when a conditions report is asked smh. Ice fishing has been allowed every season. NO signs exist with "caution possible water level several feet below the ice"......Nope! Been there several times use common sense and safety gear.
niceheard those stories so many times it makes me laugh, heard that about green mountain also unless your drilling three feet from shore I doubt your going to have a problem, like ive said ive been there numerous times and never ran into this but ive always drill
ed my holes out away from the bank. as always use caution and common sense and you should be fine
Thanks for the report littlemac. You ever catch a Tiger Trout out of there? Turns out a few have been stocked. My buddy caught one in the fall. I think it is a cool addition to the lake.I personally did not make it but had two friends that did they drilled there holes through about six inches of hardback snow and then four inches of clear ice and low and behold the water was at the bottom of their holes, they fished anywhere between 25 and 80 fow and caught fish typical gross lakers small and skinny had no problems getting on or off ice
