Any one having any luck?

4 posts in this topic

Friday, I went out on a small gravel pond and caught a few perch, blue gill, and a bass. Found out that the blades on my ice auger were dull, and just barely got through the ice. Drove up to worthington with hopes wal-mart would have replacement blades for my auger since I bought it there about 2yrs ago. No luck. Seen someone was out on Okabena with an eskimo quick fish. Hope they caought some walleyes.

Just want to know how thick the ice is on Okabena, Round, and Ocheda. Also is Marv's the closest place to get bait. Anyone having luck on any of the mentioned lakes?

I drilled about 20 holes in Templar Park seen one bluegill on the camera and caught it and only seen one bullhead in the other 19 or so holes there was about 3" of ice. There was also on die hard sitting on a bucket at the grade and one unhappy looking fellow leaving anglers bay he did walk out with his portable so im assuming he had around the average 3-4" not sure how far out he went though. Drove past Silver and Center both have ice but I didn't check to see how much. Fished Round Lake (MN) this afternoon on the south side caught to small perch and one small 13" walleye seen a several other small pech but no other walleyes. If the cold holds on through the week, the wind doesn't blow too much, and the snow doesn't insulate the ice too much next week should be a pretty good week for the protected areas.

Thanks, but I just ordered a new set from the jiffy site. Sucks, bet I paid at least $20 more for the blades with the shipping, won't have them here right away either.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
