Has anyone been out on Harriet or Calhoun yet? Just curious to see how think the ice is out there.

Thanks for the report!

Saw a shack out on the east side of Calhoun 2 nights ago. Looked to be out a little ways. Haven't checked the ice personally.

Let us know on the ice thickness/quality. I know we are anxious for an ice report.

Thanks guys for the reports. It sounds like I will be sticking around the North side of town this weekend for some pike. We'll see though.

If we get crazy and head into the City, I will post ice quality on Monday. Thanks again.

I was out on Calhoun last night. There is 4" of ice under the snow cover and 7" everywhere else. I'd say the lake is 50% snow covered but only an inch or two deep and hard pack. Lots of sounds of cracking and ice making!

I am thinking of heading to Harriet tomorrow night (friday), has anyone been out there lately and can provide me an ice report? I figure there is more than enough to safely fish, but I would really like some first hand opinions. Thanks.

I was out on the South West part of the lake last Thursday and there was about 7-8" of ice at that time. I had been out a week before that on 4-5" (less under the snow). I checked under some snow covered spots last week and there was plenty of ice there as well.

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.
