Prolly better in the spring or when the water is higher. I don't think much water is being let out. I'm going to Tonka tonight, but won't check out the lil dam where Minnehaha begins. Good luck

I heard the dam is closed so no water coming out of tonka. Which is good for Tonka - its low. We need RAIN confused.gif

The creek is really drying up. I saw lots of fish trapped in pools in the St. Louis Park area. Mostly chubs & minnows but there were a few small bass, bluegills & carp. Catching bait is pretty easy right now.

I wonder how it is now with the rain we got? Hopefully some minnows/fish made it.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
