Weekend Fishing Plans

14 posts in this topic

OK fearless ice fishermen/women/other, who's going out on ice of uncertain depth & strength, covered up in a blankie of comfy, warm snow this weekend?

Where are you going?

I'm thinking of heading out to a small lake I've traditionally started on every year, or one of the smaller ponds around my house. But who knows? I really like to explore later in the season, but this early I like to follow the tracks of someone a lot bigger than me out on the ice!

I'm with SFBoy. I know somebody that is going out this weekend, so I am going to wait for his report, then plan accordingly for next weekend. Just want to give it another week for the ice to thicken up a little bit.

Vrod, where did you get your Guide? I went to the GM in Eden Prairie earlier this week and they are sold out. Probably going to head to the Lakeville one on Saturday. Got the OK from the lady, so I can't wait to pick it up!

Good luck and be safe!

CJH I would give a call to Cabin Fever. It looked like they had a couple of them upstairs.

I plan on trying this afternoon and maybe tomorrow if I find good ice. The guys at Cabin Fever gave me a couple ideas where guys have been finding 4-6" of ice.

I'll be chasing walleyes on Tonka Saturday evening. My first couples trips out there always provide the best action of the winter. I'll take it slow and check the ice as I go - just like early ice every year.

Carp - You can certainly come along, I'm just not sure where I'm going yet. I'll be poking around tomorrow afternoon to hopefully find a place for the evening. I'll send you an email...

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
