Well, I had a choice between Prior and Medicine lakes for Saturday. Flipped a coin and ended up on Prior. Caught a lot of sunnies but couldn't get into any crappies. Caught a mess of perch too.
As for driving on the lake? I wouldn't take my vehicle out there. There were a few, but as far as I could see, the ice was less then 12" and very soft. Also the ice is receding from the shoreline pretty quick. I think in the metro area, it is time to keep the vehicles off this ice. No fish is worth it.
