First time out this winter

4 posts in this topic

I talked the Mrs. into goin out on Willow yesterday afternoon/night (Saturday) to try catch something. As usual we catch nothing, but she will even admit being out after dark was fun. That and setting up the big ugly canvas monster was a treat too. We may give Foster's a try next time, since it's closer to home.

If you want to catch some fish you should go to Gamehaven pond. I was there on Friday and we caught 70 sunfish in about 2 hours. It was really fun even though most of the fish caught were small you could find some keepers. We were using Gill Pills tipped with a waxie.

how long of a trek is it to get from the parking area to the pond? I have heard it is a trek. Never been there.

If you access off from 45th St its probably about 1/2 mile.

You will see some red gates, just park on the side of the road and follow the trail. There is a hill to climb to get over the dam overflow. but its not as bad as KR7.

Good luck

      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
