friday 2/29/08: leapday outing

6 posts in this topic

anybody available in the morning on Friday and interested in meeting up?

lakes under consideration: melissa, big detroit, sallie. Other options, big and little pine, pelican, big or little floyd, long (both of them), loon, lida.

I would like to catch some tullibees. perch and crappies are also ok. likely in the areas I'd like to fish you'd catch all three species.

so, any takers? If not interested fishing, anybody interested in snowmobiling at maplewood in the morning? I'd need to be back in DL betwen 100pm to 130 pm.

perch, I went riding instead. I think I made the right choice. It was windier than all get out. When I was riding by the access at South Lida, all you saw was a white cloud from the blowing snow. I put on about 90 miles.

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
