-34 ouside BRRRRRR

10 posts in this topic

Well it is darn cold outside right now. My thermometer says -34 and my job for the day is to watch the 3 kids and put wood in the stove. I suppose I will do some cleaning also so the better half is happy when she gets home from work! grin.gif

If you are venturing out today, bundle up, fill your gas tank and cover your skin.

Stay warm and be safe today!

Wasn't that cold here this morning. -17 is all it is here in NE montan. suppose to warm a little this week. I'm ready for the soft water to come. Have all my rods cleaned and new line on. I'm pumped for the new season to start. Got to get my passport done so I can go to Canada and wet the line. CAJ

when you're done cleaning I know another place close by that could use a little vacuuming... grin.gif

FYI...Fleet has all their rods & combos 1/3 off right now, didn't have the rods I was looking for. Gander has 40% off the same gear, almost picked up a couple St.Croix's but I can't stand those handles.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
