What a great fishing trip! This podcast will be somewhat a audio blog or journal. Joel Nelson and I cut across the state of Minnesota, fishing for a multitude of species.

Thanks a ton Brandon, Jonny and Frank for the time you shared with us. Great time!

Some phots from the trip!

Good ones, boys. I believe Frank is actually not working Superior, but is working at crumpling a beverage can. Well, that's work, too, after a fashion. grin.gif

Man what a trip, maybe you could open this up as a grad credit class for teachers? I don't need the credits, but I would gladly sign up for this trip as a graduate level class. In fact I could probably get 8-10 teachers to sign up for it..............

STF:

Actually, I'm doing my best to look cool while driving, without messing up the board lines. Frank is cracking his knuckles to prepare for the tedious untangling job he was about to perform.

Seriously though, you folks in this forum have a truly knowledgeable outdoorsman at your disposal. Deitz and I learned a great deal from fishing and talking with Frank.

We had a number of releases we just didn't hook up on, and we lost a good fish. From the sounds of the radio traffic, we were doing better than everyone we heard from, thanks in no small part to Frank and his friend Lonnie's experience on the big pond.

Thanks for the great time!

Joel

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?

      Had great fishing out from McKinley in 28 FOW on Friday-Saturday.  Caught a great mix of dinks, eaters, and slot fish.  I ended up catching five 22-25" walleyes, but my guest on Saturday (Chris Larson) caught the largest at 25½".  Best action was using a chub on a plain hook, but small jigs and rattlers also had action.  Walleyes still didn't like the sucker minnows. I had 8½" of ice where I was (was 6½" the previous week).  But be very careful out there because there are bad spots as people have mentioned.

      Anybody walking out yet? Preferably would like to know Glenwood side..

      Just want to put this out early... hoping to keep up on the ice conditions along the north shore of superior from Duluth N. 2 1/2 hr drive is a bit far to check ice. Thanks for all the help from people in the area.
