fish were pretty tight lipped for me yesterday. I managed a couple of small crappie and a bonus walleye on Lime Lake. I'm giving it another go in acouple of minutes.

On the upside, Mrs. Boilerguy won a key to the castle Friday night!!!!!!

Sunday was definately better. The perch action was hit and miss. We also got into some fairly nice crappies. We were fishing the north end of Lime Lake.

Sorry no fishing this past weekend but I can report MANY MANY ringnecks in South Dakota were scared to death by the sounds that came from my gun, too bad they weren't shot to death by the pellets tongue.gif

Ready to rock now, going out tomorrow after work with the girls. And plan to hit it a couple times later this week. This weekend, fish, fish, fish, fish, and I may do a little fishing in my spare time. Let me know where anyone is fishing if they want company and maybe we can hook up!

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?

      Had great fishing out from McKinley in 28 FOW on Friday-Saturday.  Caught a great mix of dinks, eaters, and slot fish.  I ended up catching five 22-25" walleyes, but my guest on Saturday (Chris Larson) caught the largest at 25½".  Best action was using a chub on a plain hook, but small jigs and rattlers also had action.  Walleyes still didn't like the sucker minnows. I had 8½" of ice where I was (was 6½" the previous week).  But be very careful out there because there are bad spots as people have mentioned.

      Anybody walking out yet? Preferably would like to know Glenwood side..

      Just want to put this out early... hoping to keep up on the ice conditions along the north shore of superior from Duluth N. 2 1/2 hr drive is a bit far to check ice. Thanks for all the help from people in the area.
