Just wondering if anybody has an ice condition/fishing report for Turtle Lake in Shoreview. I am heading there this Sunday, and haven't been on it yet this year. Any info would be great, especially if there are some bad spots to avoid!

Merry Christmas!!! grin.gif

Thanks,

CJH

As of last week, ice conditions were fine for foot travel. Some 4-wheelers and sleds also out. I've punched holes with as little as 5" and as much as 9", with a couple inches of frozen slush on top of that. This includes holes over deeper water. A few folks had started moving bigger perms out.

Can't say fishing was fabulous for me, though I was jigging for 'eyes. Talked to a friend who has been catching panfish.

I was out on Saturday morning (12/22) and had a good 11" where I was fishing. Lots of slush and water on the ice. It was a tough drag out with the portable. I worked up quite a sweat. Didn't mark anything on the Vexilar or see anything on the Aqua-Vu. Was thinking about going back out on Sunday evening so I stopped by the landing earlier in the day an saw a car on the ice near the rock pile out from the access. I decided to stay home and watch the Vikes.... Should have gone fishing.

Thanks for the update! That's plenty of ice for me and my Fishtrap Guide, though I don't know how much I am going to be pulling it around with the snow! wink.gif

I am leaning towards targeting pannies, so hopefully we'll see some action! You never know with the inconsistent weather patterns we have been having lately!!

Thanks again!!

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?
