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.

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.
