Lake storey in galesburg
« on: Jan 14, 2018, 05:22 PM »
I heard some guy and his truck went thru the ice the other day. Anyone know if lake storey is still open to ice fishing?
-Sorry but the road less traveled isn't always well paved.

is this a large body of water? who would risk their life and vehicle to drive to a spot that probably could be walked to in minutes.

From what information I have gathered from the article above, it was an elderly man and his dog and the man said he had been driving around for a bit. Not sure what that means but it doesn't sound like he was fishing.  I am guessing it's still open to fishing and would think the hole would be froze back up by now.  Storey usually has some of the best ice from year to year.

Plenty of ice for ice fishing, not so much for driving.  Had a couple buddies down there the same day the truck went through.  They said they caught a lot of Crappies, but nothing of good size.  That lake always turns on at night.
