Canada vs. USA

2 posts in this topic

Heading up for our 3rd annual Rainy trip on Thursday. 7-8 guys, 3 boats, staying @ Woody's, will be fishing thursday even thur Mon. Every year we've got some guys that want to fish the Canadian side, some don't. Some keep saying we gotta go farther east, we gotta go farther east (ie Saginaw Bay & beyond. I'm looking for opinions on whether or not the fishing really is that much better in Canada. And if so, how come? less fishing pressure? Or is your typical the grass is always greener effect?

Hope to stop in and see ya fishmiester.

Nice haul RainyDaze! Saw the pictures on Woody's website. Maybe you'll give us your hot spots this weekend, we'll be in the Northstar.

Nice report vister. I've lived in Wadena for 2 years now. Transplant from Duluth. Please let me know if you've got any last minute advice for this weekend.

Hey Capitalgains,

I'm sure I'll see you although I'm independant I'm guiding Friday and Saturday through Woody's. The fishing has been great! Caught some real nice fish tonight again with the fishing queen on board. Biggest fish was a nice 22 incher. FYI the fishing queen is the GM at Woody's. Pretty easy to get along with too! She always tells people we fished blindfold reef! Great gal I tell Ya! Look forward to meeting you! I haven't found a need to fish the east end this time of year, and canada...

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
