Was up this afternoon for the maiden voyage of the season with my 9 year old son, we headed out near Hennepin Island.

We were on a sled and didn't see or run across any slush thank god. We had 10-11" of great solid ice.

Fished from 1-5 and caught 3 nice perch, tons of lookers and not much for takers, threw everything but the kitchen sink at them.

Not much action up there today that I could see.

Next time try fishing lures. I have never had too much luck with kitchen appliances. Caught one on a fork once, the waiter said it was sushi.

When you have a 9 year old who is always on the go with you, you will learn to be creative and do whatever it takes to try and get them to bite!

Seems to be the concensus on the fishing lately, lots of lookers and few takers.

I also fished the SE corner. I did throw the kitchen sink at them - no 'eyes, but a few perch.

I fished north end of grassy- nothin.

Fished near Malone - a few perch, no eaters.

Fished north end of Popes reef - more small perch.

And finally, the graveyard - Nothin.

There were people sorting through a lot of small perch and catching some keepers right in front of Anglers Paradise. About 10-1.

Se corner real slow IMO.

Good Luck!

I was out on the flats today, had a total of 2 bites. Luckily pulled both up. 26" and 22.5" eyes. Really slow, but those fish made it worth it. Hope to get up again in the coming days to try and catch them again. Good luck this weekend.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
