Ice-Out Count Down - < 100 Days To Go

4 posts in this topic

If I recall correctly, in 2007 the ice went out the last week of April. For those of us that don't do much ice fishing, it means that we have a limited number of days left of day dreaming and scheming about the upcoming softwater season.

So what are you going to be planning on over the remaining days?

Here is my short list:

Spend more time fishing and catching

Teach my kids about the excitement of catching a fish

Hit fewer rocks that I did the last few summers

Work to get some of the rocks and reefs on Pelican marked with buoys

Praying that the ice stays longer than usual.

I'm OK with ice-out taking a little longer as long as it's from lots of snow fall. Let's get the lake levels up!

1. We are getting a new fishing boat. I'm in the process of information gathering on boat models.

I'll know more after the boat show on what we are leaning towards.

2. Preparing for the City auto walleye classic. LOL

3. Training regimen to successfully fish Musk

4. Increase equipment inventory for musky fish

5. Repeat Steps 2-4 and then go wax the new boat

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
