Duckfisher- I was on a few lakes in the area this past weekend and there was about 6-8 inches of ice. I have never winter fished any of those lakes. I was going to go down to Duck last weekend but the walleyes were biting on another area lake. Can you give me any hints about Duck? Thanks

thedanimalkmk,

I really don't have much time spent on duck ice fishing. I hope to spend a bit of time on duck and the crow wings this year. I will be heading up the end of the month to do nothing but fish. Hopefully I can send a couple bits of info after that. Do you know of any lakes I should definetly hit when I am up there? Thanks and good luck.

Duckfisher-if you are looking to fish pike then I would reccomend the north arm of big Mantrap. On the north side of Cokes Island. There are usually a lot of flags and the average size of the fish in the past has been around 26 inches for me. It seems every trip out a guy can get one 32+. If you are looking for panfish shoot me an e-mail at dan_stith@yahoo.com and I will try to help you out.

Dan

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
