If your talkin about green in Isanti, there has been some houses right out from the access, shallow, and dark houses. I heard a friend say there were alot more out there, but that is a long walk in the snow. I haven't been there yet, but going to Chisago tonight. Will post, and if you hit green, let us know would ya? Much appriciated, good luck.

fished blue 12/13 in the afternoon.

Caught sunnies in 12 ft of water, lot of small ones, but you can sort for decent size fish. Also caught a nice norther on 3lb line panfish rod and reel. Took a long time to land the fish, but a ton of fun

Good luck

sunday at blue lake i saw lots of houses by the point in the middle of the lake and was wondering if anybody was catching anything cuz i was closer to shore off the flat access and was hardly getting a bite but the guys next to me were pulling fish left and right so i just guess it was an off day for me

finesse fishing....use small baits is the trick that gets me fish out there.......I use plastics with a euro and go small......it's annoying sending down a small bait but if it gets you fish..........

Tried Blue lake twice last week. Stay away from the croud and think small. The smaller the better. I put some fish on the ice, but it was definatly a finesse bite. tongue.gif

any size to the fish?.....I have always caught them but I just don't see the size to take out the knife and get a quality fillet!!! It is definatly possible but I try to keep 10 inchers (crappie) and catch 1 maybe every 15 fish so I don't get meals from there......just wondering congrats on the fish!!! smile.gif

Oz,

I agree, I crappie fish Blue a lot in the summer and can catch 7-8" fish all day long, but rarely anything 10+

I got into a school of 10"+ fish a couple summers ago in about 15' off a weedline, man that was fun. Boated a 28" eye and a limit of slabs in a two hour span.

      We're making ice now. 0 degrees in Twig   I measured a spot along my shore that had opened during the warm up and found 4" of ice. If I thought about going out to deeper water I for sure would use caution and chisel my way.

      Yes SA fills tanks and should be able to fill a 30 lb tank but they charge a flat rate.  So if your tank is half full or empty you pay the same flat rate.    Uhaul charges by weight and you pay for what they put in.   Both are cheaper then the tank exchange and most tank exchange are 17 lb whereas SA and Uhaul fills to 20 lb.  When you figure that in your paying a lot more for convenience.    One more detail.  If your tank is out of date and needs a new inspection it can't be filled by UHaul or SA BUT the tank exchange will take them.

      I don't know of any product that will keep a pair work gloves dry.  Sure you can spray a water repellent on them that might bead rain water off but go work in them and they'll be saturated.   If your wearing the gloves for protection having them wet isn't the end of the world but if you need protection and warmth I bring a few pairs on the job.  Or you can purchase some hi-tech stuff that claims to be waterproof but a I know of none that will stand up to be a true work glove.    When I think of work boot I'm thinking leather.   I use Sno-Seal.  It stands up to a hard day on the job and Will keep your feet dry.  Being a wax base dirt will stick to it in warmer temps but bring on the cooler temps and it shines.   You could get a boot like Mucks but they will not hold up like a leather work boot.  So it depends on what type of work I guess.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.
