I have never fished it but be sure to release the big ones so there will be big ones in the future.

I will only be keeping enough fish to eat for my girlfriend and I while we are there. Yes I am aware of the restrictions. wink.gif

I have been trying to get in touch with someone at Glendalough about renting a canoe there. We are camping there and I would like to know what the canoe rental fee's are. Anyone know?

Annie Battle is a great fishing spot - I've spent many hours enjoying the peace of a quiet sun set in a canoe. There are many secrets in the depths of this lake that can only be learned with time on the water. However, I do enjoy wading or floating the inlet/outlets streams with a fly rod for nice gils. It doesn't get much better than that. The skiing in the winter is A-1 (when there is snow). We even canoed from Molly Stark to Ottertail (ended with a cold beer at Zorbazzz) what a trip that was. Good luck and enjoy the fishing.

What would be the best depth for Sunnies/Crappies this time of year? I would only be guessing since there are no electronics lol.

youll be at about 12-14 ft if you just watch over the side and when the weeds start thining out youll be there its very clear and you can see the cabbage just be on the edge or even in them.

      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
