Just wondering what the ice conditions are like out there? I'm somewhat assuming it's pretty thick, but then we all know what "assume" really means.... whistle.gif

I think that's why he said ice out will be mid-May......

Ice is good! Should be able to drive on it for another month unless we get warm weather consistently, for weeks at a time.. Not much biting out there though just a few small crappies!

Yeah, I passed on it for the weekend. I probably won't get there until sometime after the opener.

There is some awefully thick ice around this year though. I went south to the Mankato area and the 2 lakes I hit each had nearly 30" of ice!

Best I've seen in quite some time.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
