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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
