Things are going to start happening! The temperature is 2 below, but the way the wind is cranking I'm sure the big lakes aren't getting a whole lot done as far as ice making. The smaller lakes that were already iced will be fishable this weekend I would guess.

Does anyone know what's actually frozen. Eddie? Nisswa? Upper Gull? Round? Trying to decide on coming up this weekend and if my only options are south long or clark I'll wait Cmon eddie. If the wind would just quit blowing they all would be iced over.

I walked out a ways on Crow Wing and found there to be at least 1 1/2 inches everyplace I checked. I would not take a chance on it being thicker anyplace else. By the weekend I would assume that most smaller lakes would have fishable ice.

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
