Tough day on the Rainy for me, started out by the gap where the wind was supposed to be out of the south, well it was NW and blowing good, loaded up and went to Clementson, yes the flow is strong, water muddy and full of debris, challanging caught a couple, but hopefully things will calm down and can get a quality trip in before ice time., but what a nice sunny day on the water!

one more thing to add, could not believe the number of boats fishing on the canadian side, now I know they may all have ontario licenses, rabc's no live bait or could be canadians but i doubt it, they take people down in the spring hard! so beware!

It's really a challenge getting a reliable wind report up here. If they get the direction right, the speed is way off.

In defense of the weather dudes though, have actually seen the wind do a complete 360 in a days fishing on the lake. The lake effect is very real.

There appears to be a weather "seam", somewhere between Vidas Landing & Frontier Landing on the river. Wind will be blowing up at Clementson and down at Frontier. Any body else see that?

Dutchmen just wanted to say hi fishing down here on the croix has been awesome. Had a group of friends with you here last week. they said the water levels were high but they caught fish and had a great time as always.

We also talked when I stoped in up there a couple weeks a go about the island. Well I was talking to muskie partner about it and your experiece with the muskies right off your dock and it peeked his intrest. So if you could e-mail me some info on the island, when you get a chance and you guy get everything worked out, we are looking for somthing between early Aug. and early sept. At least 4 nights if not a full week. My e-mail is walleyeguy2006@hotmail.com

Hope you and the dutches are to doing well and if some reason we cant make arangements for the island we are already geared up for or trip to the river next Oct. and very happy to be staying with you this up coming year.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      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....
