I was out on Zipple Bay. Hot Spot road. Fishing was pretty slow. Caught quite a few little ones, and nothing over 15, didn't keep any. Roads and weather very bad Sat. Only saw about 10 other trucks out there. Was kind of wondering what the heck I was doing out there???

I stayed in over the weekend Boar! Even some of the resorts shut their fishing down on Saturday! I was out Thursday and Friday, Thursday so-so, Friday darn good, the evening Eye bite especially good. 22fow smack in the middle of the Muskeg.

SW side of the pond. Draw a line from Rocky point to the South tip of Buffalo point and everything to the west would be Muskeg Bay.

Was out of Zipple on Thurs-Sat. Gorgeous weather on the ice the first 2 days and the fishing was OK at best. Lots of little ones with the biggest 17" but we selectivley brought back a dozen each day (3 guys) and had 2 good fish frys. Saturday was brutal out there. Luckily we were able to go into a friends hard side. I heard a portable took a 2 mile ride in the wind and was stopped by a hard side house. Sat. we had to keep some smaller 10-11" sauger to top off our fish fry. It was a good trip.

Stayed in Sportsman's Sleepers Friday through Sunday. Saturday the fishing was good. We caught about 60 walleye or sauger for 2 of us and kept just short of our limit with nothing under 14 inches. Had a nice fish fry for supper and stayed extremely warm, even with the wind and cold temps. Sunday was a bit slower, but we end up coming home with our limit, again nothing under 14 inches. Biggest in the bucket was 18 inches, a few 17's, most of them 16 inchers. I'd say overall it was a pretty awesome trip. Thank you to all the Sportsman's guide for their hard work and risking themselves on Saturday to check on us and anyone else who was out there. We appreciate everything you did to make our trip comfortable!!!

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      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
