I'm in Brooklyn Park just off 610. I've been known to travel down to Medicine, Harriet and Calhoun (Plymouth and Mpls.), Eagle in Maple Grove, or you could go East to White Bear or Bald Eagle. There's lots of good options within 20 minutes of Champlin. I'm sure others will chime in as well.

I am by Woodland elemenary on Noble. I hae been trying to learn Medicine. Have caught some fish but nothing to filet yet. I like to head up to Chisago and Forest Lake if I get time. Mille Lacs is where my brother and I go. But we need to plan ahead because we both have kids under 6 so the wives like a heads up. I also want to try Fish Lake and Eagle in Maple Grove. Need to spend some time with the maps over the Christmas Holiday.

      How far did you get?

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
