What is really going on!!!!!!!!!

4 posts in this topic

I have been reading reports on this sight since the first part of December and haven't really seen any good reports of people doing really good. I have been to URL once this year in first of Jan and did terrible. Fished for 4 days 24 hrs a day and caught 12 fish among 4 of us(no crappies). I cant believe I am hearing of people going 2 days of constant fishing and not even getting a bite. I will be coming up again on Feb 15-18 and hope something changes. I always have a blast at URL but getting the fish to bite would be a wonderful improvement on the time spent staring at the Vexilar. I have a lot of faith in Club Red. I think going with a guide might be the best way to get a few more fish than on your own unless you spend alot of time on the lake all year and really get to know it. It is a little harder when you cant really go anywhere on the lake because of the snow.

We were up last weekend (1-3) and did fantastic. We went out the south end by Rogers and set up in 11ft. It was our first time so I didn't really know what to expect but it was awesome. Walleyes and a few crappies, no perch, 1 pike staring at our camera for about 5 min.(that was cool). I think there was only about 1 period(about 30 min where we didn't have a bite. Have fun when you're up there

      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
