Comming Up on Wednesday, Dec 26

3 posts in this topic

Since the ice conditions are pretty bad here in the Walker area, I talked to wife into a little Christmas Trip.

Decided to leave the fish house at home and rent one from Chad Benson. Seems to have pretty good houses and a pretty good price and I have heard nothing but good things from people passing through the store on their way home. Only can stay one night, have to be back to work on Friday.

I got a kick out of his fishing report when I read that people were having to pull the rattle reels up at 1-2am so they can get some sleep. grin.gif A sales pitch or not, thats what I wanted to here.

Hoping for some consistant walleye action with a 40"er mixed in. Not expecting any crappies but thats ok. Everything is going back down the hole anyway.

Got the Glow Red and Glow Yellow Demons and Rattle Spoons ready to go!!!! It should be a fun little trip.

I will have a full report when I get back late Thurs. We will be on the South end going out of JR's. Doesn't sound like we will be going out that far, maybe a mile or 2, 10-12 FOW, I told Chad that I was more interested in a good Walleye bite. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

We too are heading up on Wednesday and are coming back late Friday. I would love to find the crappies, but I really wouldn't care if we don't. As long as the walleyes keep us busy it is always worth the 250 mile drive!

There's a good chance my son and I will be there Wednesday also for a day trip. He's only 4.5 years old but I think he's ready for a good walleye bite grin.gif I'll be coming up from my folk's place in Grand Rapids so it's not too bad of a drive for a 1-day trip.

      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
