If the current forecast holds true, we will probably have ice on most smaller lakes in the Metro by this weekend. Will more people fall through the ice this weekend? Probably. Not me though, I have to go the Wisconsin to pick up a portable ice house that I bought on Ebay...

2 small lakes in Robbinsdale held their ice through the heat wave. I expect there to be 4 inches by Friday.

i was happy about ice till last night when i saw on channel 9 news that the anoka county sheriff boat went though the channel on coon while people were ice fishing on 2 inches of ice. 1. what the heck was going on out there? 2. will it lock back up by saturday? Might have to wait till next week.

Nope I already have a Quickfish III. I got a Quickflip 2 from Cumberland for 90 bucks! So I'll use my Quickfish III when I don't plan to move as much and the Quickflip for runnin' and gunnin'...looking at the temps and the forecast, I may be doing some of that next week!

Hey Carp,

Wow that's a great deal. Good luck. You ever fish in the Chan area like Lotus or Susan? I am usually on Tonka, Waconia, or Christmas. Maybe I will see you on the ice some time.

Yeah I've fished the area lakes. Shoot me an email; I'm always looking for new fishing buddies.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      54 degrees saturday in lakes NE of metro.

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
