Bah! Only a couple small walleyes.. I've been mainly trying to catch panfish and that aint going well. Since I've built the house, my fishing on Waconia has gone down hill.

You might try what I did last year, I moved my house every weekend, and never did I put my house near any other houses. I mean I put my house where no other house ever sits, and where the vehicles never travel,and I had my best year ever for walleyes on Waconia. If you still have my phone # give me a call and I will give you a couple of the spots.

Sounds like a good excuse to get out on Waconia, Sarpy. I hope to be there. Won't be the same without your fish house, but we will manage.

Probably mid afternoon into the evening/night.

Adam,

I kept the Voyager, for those long trips I am going to have to make in Montana to get to some ice fishing spots. I think the closest Walleye spot to me will be Fort Peck, about a 4 - 4 1/2 hour drive..

Hey Sarpy,

So far I'm in for the 23rd. My phone crashed so I lost your #. I'll try dropping you an email or if you still have my # give me a call. I'll be out of town until the evening of 2/14.

Let's meet around 3:00 - 3:30 on the ice in front of Mases.

We can decide where to go from there.

If the time is an issue go ahead and post up and then we can nail down a time that suits everybody.

      Cook, MN facebook page has a picture and info on it.  I don't know how to post a link, but here's the post-minus the photo.   The combination of record mild temperatures in late February and more seasonable temperatures in early March, has prompted dramatic ice movement on Lake Vermilion.... The south shore of Birch Point, which faces Big Bay, has seen some of the most extensive damage, as the ice has twisted lift docks, damaged boat houses, downed trees, and rearranged sizeable chunks of shoreline. Only a handful of docks along the heavily-developed lakeshore have so far escaped damage from the ice. Many docks have been damaged beyond repair. The pressure of expanding ice is typically relieved out in the lake, where large pressure ridges often form. But those ridges didn’t form as usual this year, and that left the shorelines vulnerable to the immense power of expanding ice. Lake property owners are likely to be shocked when they arrive back at their cabins and lake homes later this year. And the cost of repairs could be especially painful since, in many cases, the damage is likely not covered by insurance. “It will depend on their individual policies,” said Donna Mosher, with the Tower-Soudan Agency, which serves many Lake Vermilion property owners. She said standard insurance policies typically don’t cover ice movement, which can be a frequent source of property damage in areas where thick ice builds up in winter. Many property owners on Vermilion and other larger area lakes have turned to lift-out docks to minimize their risk of damage, but this year’s unusual conditions are leaving many of those docks damaged or destroyed as well. Some property owners do obtain insurance that includes a specific schedule or rider to cover more expensive docks, according to Mosher, but that’s usually the exception rather than the rule. “I’ve had to tell people ‘no’ already,” said Mosher. “It’s unfortunate.”

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod
