Is any one else getting burnt out on the whole ice thing. This friday could be my frozen water day. So the back waters better be awsome so I can end the season with a bang.

Come on spring. I need 70 degrees and sunshine!!!!!!

Yeah, I am ready for open water. This has been a long winter, although I am sure it is more of a "normal" winter considering the previous few have been lack luster in terms of winter weather.

Yeah, I am ready too. Was watching a fishin show this last weekend and they were trout fishin somewhere in Montana and man did I ever get the itch. Didn't help the fact that they had a cooking segment afterwards with the fresh trout. Man o man did that ever look tasty...

And of course my buddy is no help when we headed to Dick's after fishin on Sun and he starts puttin ultralight rods in my hands....those St. Croix's sure felt pretty good in my hands.

Oh well, enjoy the ice now cuz come mid July I'll be itchin to be ice fishing again...ha ha ha

As much as I love to ice fishin, I will say I'm look forward to getting my boat out every chance I get. I guess I love them both, but I agree at this point in the season the open water crave sets in.

I've taken a notice to more of the open water fishing shows and videos that I have lately. Wishful thinking and dreaming of big fish...

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
