Pine trees on WBL

12 posts in this topic

Does anyone know what's up with the pine trees on the ice by Ramsey beach? I just drove by and saw them, it looks like a christmas tree lot on the ice!

Someone trying to create structure once the ice melts, which is illegal.

why would they do that now?if they really want to do that it would make more sense to do it later in the year and someone will probably move them.

Probably didn't want to pay to get rid of their tree or like said trying to build structure. Hopefully someone pulls them off as it's illegal to do that.

It wouldn't be someone trying to create structure because they are doing it durring the day and there is about 50 of them. they may be creating stucture with permission from the DNR. It's kind of wierd because its only about 3' deep for a couple hundred yard in that area. Im sure it's not some guy trying to make stucture so obviosly like that.

That sounds really weird. Are they doing something for a fishing tournament? It also sounds like they could be making a ice rink and have the trees surrounding it?

From the White Bear Press, "The Bearly Open Golf Tournament benefit for the White Bear Food Shelf is 10am Saturady Jan. 26th" They are going to set up 2 nine hole courses. It's part of the winter carnival.

Man, I was going out there tomorrow! You put up with jetskiers all summer and now golfers in the winter!!!!!

Just kidding I hope raise a lot of cash for the food shelf. But if a Titlelist #3 dings my truck......

      All eyes on the forks now. Weather looks perfect for a steady slow release. Minimal impact this year but I'd bet this weekend and next week will be the worts of it.

      The MN DNR website shows the Big Fork just opening up upstream and the Little Fork open for about half of it's length upstream. Flows are high but have been higher in past years so may not be high enough to cause problems. I would think within 4 -5 days one will be able to tell how severe the spring rise in the Forks will be. If the upstream gages begin to drop soon it will be a good sign as it will indicate the big push from upstream is past.

      Got a Abu Garcia veritas medium heavy 7 foot rod paired with a revo sx 7:1 I believe ratio. Will this be a good spinner bait rod? I might play with some bigger bass jigs or 3/8 jig heads with swim tails. I have 2 other rods 7 foot mediums, one for cranks moderate fast action with Revo winch,  and the other all around use a veritas with revo s 6:4 also. tired of having to retie all the time. Should this work? I don't do the big football jig things much. and have spinning rods for wacky and small jigs. Just trying to get a better system worked out Thanks guys. Lots of help on here.

      Yes, good report!   I travelled 210 from Brainerd to Duluth and see the ice is getting dark but has only pulled away from shore in a few areas.  I didn't see anyone fishing but did see a few auger piles on the ice.  The piles suggested maybe 10-12 inches of ice.  It'll go soon.   One thing for sure is the stores are DONE with the ice season.  I picked up some custom rods from Northlander and want to put reels on em for this weekend but can't find any in lines anywhere!  Called around too.  Same story - all packed away to get the summer stuff out.

      The lakes on the road going into SJU are mostly open.  A very small amount of skim ice on the downwind side...I expect it'll be gone with the wind and rain and warmer temps tomorrow.   If you see someone out canoeing this weekend, it'll be me.
