I was out there Friday evening and Saturday. There was 8.5

inches where I fished. It was good, but there were some

slushy spots. A wheeler, ok, but trucks, you have to be crazy. The fishing wasn't fast and furious either.

Is anyone having any luck out there? I was out most of the afternoon and evening on Saturday without any luck. I'd just like to know if I'm the only one or just doing something wrong. Thanks

Fished up on Norway on the 7th and 8th of Dec. Friday night we walked out there, bout 2 hours worth of walkin. Once we got out there found anywhere from 8-12" of ice. With all the ATV's and sleepers out there we decided to drive out on Saturday and it was fine. Although we had a little 4 cylinder pickup that doesn't weigh a hair more than a ATV sleeper combo. Got alot of criticism for it but was alot better than walking 2 hours both ways! Fishing was descent with only about a 1 1/2 hour time slot, 4:30-6:00pm. Nothing before and nothing after. Caught everything from 6-10" eyes, smaller sunnies, a couple descent largemouths and even a few smaller crappies. Nothing with size, but definitely made our time worth it.

There is a pretty big village that has developed on Norway. The fishing has since slowed way down. You can still catch a few crappies and walleyes but they are very small and you have to work pretty hard to get those even. I'm moving my house to a different lake today. I get claustrophobic with that many houses that close to me. grin.gif

Fished Norway yesterday. Fish were hard to come by. Managed a 26" pike on a tip-up and a 21" walleye on a jig and fathead combo. Fished next to others we knew. They were catching a few smaller eyes. Ice thickness varied greatly. Where we were it was 14 inches a hundred yards away less then 10. So be careful. People were driving full sized trucks out though. Fished in 10.7 feet of water.

sure is Jesse! I had an account on here back in high school but its been quite a few years since I've used this, so I had started up a new one. Yeah, Jordan and I stopped up to the Green Mill to see ya after fishin, but they said you hadn't worked there in a couple of months. Maybe we'll have to get together and go fishing sometime.

Hey Jesse, Jordan and I are heading up tomorrow morning to fish up there somewhere. Haven't exactly figured out for sure where we're going to try. Maybe Long, Florida or somewhere else. Hoping to be set up a little after one. You'll have to give us a call if you plan on doing any fishing tomorrow or just wanna know what's up with fishin. Either way we'll be out there. Give us a call. 507-430-0501

      Hmmm...getting a prosthetic foot and attaching hooks now

      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.

      There are a few small Trout lakes in there as well but not sure how they bite in the summer? I've only Ice fished them.
