Usually up at the cabin on Cass during that timeframe... We should hook up and see if we can't throw a spear or two together.

Good Luck!

I am a college student that lives on lake Andrusia and rent a cabin from Joes Lodge Resort. My roommates and I are heading out spearing tomorrow. Sorry but we will be gone when you are coming up. This is our chirstmas break and I will be in Grand Rapids Spearing. You can stay touch with me for ice conditions and how spearing has been on Andrusia and local lakes.

Last thursday, My roommate and I first went to a little lake called Silver and last years clear water was muddy from the lake turning over. So we moved to a private little lake and there we found Gin clear water. both lakes had 6 inches of ice and 1/4" of water came up the hole. We had two nice 8 pounders completely smash our decoy then bolt before the spear was in the water.

Dirty? lmao I thought the way you post that you knew something about this area. The lakes up here are generaly clear and clean. Quite a few have clarity of over 30 feet. Some shallower lakes are stained but not dirty. When you say dirty water, thats what many of, but certainly not all of the lakes down in southern MN are.

Last year right after Christmas was on some lake around the Cass area and they were dirty!!! It was because of the lake ice I think!! smile.gif

Hope you guys have snowmobiles, the lakes were already a mess up here and now we got a couple on inches of new snow last night and are supposed to get a couple more. If it doesn't get real cold, it will be a slushy mess. You might also get some water up the hole on some of the lakes. We have even been getting the 4 wheeler stuck quite a bit and I certainly don't suggest full size trucks, maybe on some of teh lakes but, I wouldn't yet... My permanent is still sitting in the driveway...

Yes most lakes are clear but you know they can change fast with ice and etc. Last year, it was clear most of the year.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.

      i wanted a yellow lab and got over ruled on the chocolate.  Great looking dog!  Does not look 115 pounds
    • JB18
          Thanks!  She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old.  Don't think she will get much bigger. I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.    I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them.  I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.    If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.

      Awese thread! I take our golden/lab mix to Round Lake for training also. This pic is from May when it was chilly. We're having an absolute blast working together. She's a sweet dog, will do anything to please me if she understands. Only thing I have to do before the season is somehow introduce her to gunshots and that's not easy without private land. Watching her barrel through the cattails to find that dummy is awesome.
