6 posts in this topic

So I was up fishing at Lake George tonight from shore by the dock area and this large fishing kept sticking his head out of the water and swimming on top...almost like a dolphin does...to me it looked like a salmon but I know that they wouldn't be around here...another guy docking at the moment seen it and was confused as by what it is too...any one know?

muskies have been known to stick their heads out of the water and swim around. No one knows for sure why they do this??? Don't think theres muskies in George though??? Weird! Could be a pike I guess.

We lived on George for 3 seasons and it used to be directly connected to Nest which feeds from MUSKY overflow from fisheries rearing pond on flood conditions.

So just like Green having them and 3 48 inch and larger from Nest last season its probaly a MUSKIE.

In November go out on bar below bible camp crosses with large one foot dead three days on the dashboard in a bag suckers on a green ELMER HINCKLY Jig with single blade same color and tou will have fun with 13 to 15 pound NORTHERN PIKE.

A freind of mine lived two doors down from where we lived and ice fished ,when asked how the walleye bite was he would say not so good.

In the spring when fishing was over he would show us several pictures of true catch and release walleyes.

Its truly sad that when county road was rebuilt they basically destroyed the height of water passage from Nest.

Those fish for George are now the last of a dynasty.

      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
