I just may have a few hours free this weekend to test your hand warmers on the rod trick. I bought a few to try it since I HATE fishing with gloves! I drive a 14 foot duck pattern grumman with a Yamaha 30horse. Good luck to all, sundays shaping up to be shorts weather, 46 degrees! grin.gif(well not really shorts per say)

15'-38 up and down steep drops mark lots of fish just weren't active, no I never went past the kinni only went as far as the bluffs park, lots of fish in that area just couldn't get them to bite! Tried 4 different color jigs, several different gulp colors and fatheads on lindys the only walleye came on a gulp minnow and white jig

Dumb question, is the bluffs frozen over? I may go out tommmorow, but would be upset if i get there and I have to break ice.

I would guess that there would be some ice in the launch area. I wouldn't pick that launch with a glass boat. Hopefully somebody with first hand info can chime in...

The bluffs launch is fine its warm enough yet so there's no much icing, helpful tip bring a bucket of sand just encase you need to though in down! Big Jeff and I will be out in the morning plan on fishing from 7-3, see you on the water!

walli1, looks like the buck I've got in my back yard!!! I've got a nice 10 pointer that's sporting 10 inch G2's and 8 inch G3's. There's also 2 trash rack 6 pointers as well walking around. If only. Sandmannd and I were getting ready to go hunting during opening weekend and I was putting my stuff outside, when I'm letting the dog out to do her thing and she freezes up. I've got my gun cased in my hand, and go to see why she froze up, only to see the 10 pointer standing at 20 yards giving me a broadside shot. I was not the happiest person at that time.......

2007 will no doubt go down as one of the top years on the river for the amount of eyes I boated, 2003 for the most C&R by far. This year caught quite a bunch of C&R but only a handful over 24" with the largest being 28 1/2", next year is going to be great all those 12-14" will be legals, can't wait but hey I'm going out in the morning, see you on the water!

      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
