Went out yesterday afternoon and discovered my fish house was broken into. :-( :-o This is what I had in there.

4 camo highback chairs.

1 wood tip-up

1 old spinning rod and reel.


1 fish scale

1 pair ice cleats

1 ice scoop

What is weird. Nothing was taken but the old rod and reel combo. Did these robbers have a conscience? I'm glad they didn't take the chairs. I really like them. :-D I guess I have to move the house back near the crowd so their is a little more protection. It has never happened to me before on Centerville.

The fishing didn't pick up until near sundown and after dark. Crappie and sunfish. Mainly small with a few good ones. We also had a sucker minnow down and a fathead minnow on another. So what does the northern bite? My powerbait grub on a shrimpo.... That was fun. It was a good time in there. We had 5 of us having a few barley pops, catchin fish, fishing in our t-shirts staying warm during a deep freeze! You got to love Minnesota fishermen/women.

As soon as it warms a little I am moving it to another spot I marked in the summer closer to the others.

We had our shack broke into also on Peltier last weekend.

Really messed up the door and locks.

They did not get too much.

Some rod holders

Gas can and gas.

Slush inhailer.

More of a pain then anything.

Everyone keep your eyes open for these LOSERS!!!

RonZych - I saw you moving your house on Centerville today just as my daughter and I were packing up and leaving. I didn't get a chance to stop over and say hi as she was ready to go. Good luck in the new spot!

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.
