bmc (Can we change our plans to Thursday?)

Recommended Posts

BD110

Hey Brian,

I was wondering if we could change are plans from Wednesday to Thursday. I could even come up your way Wednesday night so we could get out first thing in the morning.

Post a reply or give me a call later. What ever works for you. I'm at work today if my cell doesn't pick up your call.

Hey Tom,

I may have to head to Cities Thurs. or Friday for work. I should know Monday and will give you a call when I know for sure. Still haven't had a chance to get out yet. Tuesday will be my first day on the ice. How much snow did you get, I'd say 6-8" here in D.R.

Brian,

I'll be at the Fire hall on Monday. I'm not sure if I gave you that number. If you have it you can call me there anytime before 9:00pm. If not leave a message on my cell and I'll get back to you.

I'll talk to you about what happened with Wednesday then. As far a snow goes I'm guessing we got about 12 inches or so.

I'll talk to you soon!!

I'll post up a report Lisa as "poor" BD110 is probably trying to catch a few winks as he's fished at least 5 days this week! Poor guy! grin.gif We hit the SW side of the lake, out in front of where the Miss. comes in. We set up in about 8 fow around 9:30 am and fished till about 4 pm. We ended up with our 6 northerns 2 just under 30" and 4 in the 25" range give or take an inch. All caught on tipups with dead smelt and 1 on a live golden shiner. We also caught some perch in the area, but nothing worth bringing home. The DNR creel survey guy said we had the best luck out of anybody that was in that area. About 8" of ice and a little slush where we drilled our holes. About 8-10" of snow on top so going was tough w/ an ATV pulling a trailer, but we just pulled Tom's Otter house out and didn't have a problem. Also there was a pressure ridge forming about 100-200 yds out from shore, running north and south.

As always Tom, it was a great trip and thank god we got our pizza at Blueberry Bowl before they ran out of gas!!! grin.gif

Brian,

That was a great report and you are correct I'm heading out the door in 30 min. for day number 5 on the ice. It's a tough job but someone has to do it. I'll be looking forward to taking the day off tomorrow.

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
