-21 to + 31

9 posts in this topic

Forecasted -21 degrees Friday night followed by +29 degrees on Saturday. The ice sheet has been pretty stable since the -30 degree nights and now a 50 degree swing in 24 hours. There should be 12 to 15 feet of movement sometime on Saturday. Any guess's on what time it booms and soils our underwear. \:o I'll go with 3:40 PM when everyone runs out of their houses. grin.gif

4:13 and 22 seconds. I've got an URL rookie coming up with me this weekend. Kelly/Jon I'll point him out when you drop me off at the house. We'll have to try the seal story incase the "ice quake" doesn't work on him.

Based on the boom from this weekend last year I'm guessing 12:30 pm.

Kelly, I think you need to set up a camera to keep these sort of memories and also to share some laughs. my boss is up there right now, I would pay big for some blackmail material!!!

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
