Just wondering if there are any reports around the CF area (within 45 min). Will be in Cannon Falls this weekend and have never fished around there. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Last I heard, the only Whitebass/stripers thru the ice have been on Mazaska, earlier in the year. I get them sometimes in the spring on the stretch of the Cannon River between Bylesby & the Miss. River.

Speaking of ice fishing Byllesby, I was out there form 4:30-7:45 last nite. Thinking that the front coming in would make for a good "Bite". I was wrong. at least for me. Had one bite & it had to be at one of the only times I left the shack. I was 15 ft away , getting a brew out of my truck & the rattle reel went off. By the time I reached the shack, fish was off & gone.. Bummer. I wanted to stay later, but needed to get back to the house.

Have to try again later..

GoodLuck to ya!

Thanx Tyler, Yep, It went back right after the pics.(taken 4-5 yrs. ago) It could have been a state record, I'm thinkin, Had it been later in the year.(Mn. record 18+" @ 4.4 lbs) It was around 20-22" using the can= approx 4-/34", & we guessed the weight at 3+ lbs. Seemed skinny for the length, at the time. It was pretty cold that day , so gil54p(< FMn. Member) took the pic & back down the hole it went, for someone else to try & catch. I don't put fish on the wall, & it was a fairly rare catch for Lake Mazaska. Maybe 30 sec. - 1 min. exposure to the air. We were fishing for crappies. used minnow & bare hook w/splitshot.If I remember correctly, About 20 FOW deep, fishing 18' down.

Nice Memory for me..

\:D

Go FIsh ;\)

We tried byllesby, circle, and fox- nothing.

Saturday afternoon and sunday ended up on the river by Frontinac-lots of small saugers, 4 17-18in, 2 10in and 1 15in walleye, and 2 whities. Lots of people out there even with the wind.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
