I was fishing on Forest Lake Last evening and Some of the boaters out there can just be a pain but anyways my question is doesnt the waterskiing jetsking stuff like that have to be done by 7pm? or is that just on certin lakes?

Also a lot of metro lakes have a "no wake" policy near fisherman, Minnetonka is 150 feet from any fisherman or shoreline. Does that stop people from ripping in between you and an island while you're casting at it - no, but that's the rule.

I seen it all the other day. I was fishing with my kids at local dam and jetskiers were running around on upper lake. They road the edge of the dam and were spraying their jetted water out over falls of dam. Their we people who got sprayed that were fishing below dam.

Unfortunately non-fishing activities are just a fact of life we have to contend with, and Forest Lake is one of those recreational lakes that would be good for fishing if it weren't for all the other traffic. I just shrug and move on to more fishable lakes.

I love to ski but also have the common courtesy not to go near fishermen. Probably cuz I love to fish too. I think its a back up when nothings biting

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
