YEAH, SEE YOU AND THE OTHER 2000 PEOPLE IN THE MORNING. HEARD A FEW YEARS AGO, A LADY DROPPED HER LINE DOWN WITH THE LEAD DEPTH BOMB AND REELED UP A 16" CRAPPIE.

Can you use gas augers on this lake?

I've never ice fished it before and haven't had a line in it since I was a kid. I probably won't go out on the opener but it sounds like a fund place to try during ice season.

Well don't I feel dumb today!!!

Please learn from my mistake and READ THE RULE BOOKS!

Got a ticket today for fishing out of season.

I don't blame the officer at all and am not mad at him, I should have read the book.

He was pretty cool though I also didn't know about only using one line but he just warned me about that.

Did manage to get 1 13" rainbow.

Please people if you haven't read through the rulebook please do so.

I've fished there a few times during the open water and I was thinking about getting over there soon to try it on the ice. I've heard some conflicting things though and I know this lake has some special regulations, like the no boat/canoe thing.

What I heard was you are not allowed to use a gas auger or a portable shack. Is this true? I'm already aware of the regular trout lake regulations from the handbook (like 1 line, no minnows, etc) but I'm wondering if there are any other special regulations for this lake that apply to ice fishing.

Gas augers and shacks are allowed. Everybody and their mom had one on opener. I brought mine, but didnt bother setting it up cause it was actually pretty nice out on Saturday. But yup, the usual no-no's: one line, no live bait.

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
