6 posts in this topic

I am new to this ice fishing and want to put together a base set of tackle and a pole - Any suggestions?

Secound - French Lake Kid are you heading to Owatonna on the 12th? if so do you need a ride?

Here are some tackle options. Panfish- ratso in the color pink and white. A froste jigging spoon smallest you can get is killer if you tip them with spikes.

Walleye- Jigging rap, Or a swedish pimple.

Then you have to have a dead stick with a icebuster bobber.

If your only going to get one rod maybe just get a medium action and put 4 pound line on. This should help get started.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
