Ice fishing around Chaska/Carver area?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone ever ice fish backwaters or slack areas within 20 miles of Chaska/Carver? I know the river can be pretty hairy come ice fishing time, but I would suppose there is some fisheable ice out there. Any ideas?

There are a bunch of backwater lakes in that radius. I just haven't found the time to get out and try a whole lot. I did make it out one weeknight and tried Browns near Jordan. Not enough depth. I have a couple more in mind that I would like to try........just.....need.....more......time.

Well I'd really like to try ice fishing on the river some time. The nature of river ice makes me abit apprehensive about exploring alone. So if anyone here ever wants to try a new spot, shoot me an email:

Hey dtro,

Have you ever tried Beason lake, down in the state park? I never thought about trying it in the ice season but when I was a kid we used to ride our bikes down there and seems like we always caught something!

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
