There is 6 or 7 weeks of good Ice and or shore (looper) fishing before one even needs to think about preping the boat so lets not try to melt the ice too soon grin.gif

Every time it seems to be warming up, I plan on taking the cover off and finishing those fall projects on the boat. Then it snows again then gets cold again then warms up then snows again then gets cold...ENOUGH ALLREADY!!!! C'MON SPRING!! I love my boat.

I know I should still be happy about ice fishing, but all I can think about is getting my boat out on the open water! I heard it's going to be in the 80's next week, maybe that will help.

(you can't blame me for dreaming)

Sorry to get your hopes up. It's probably not going to be in the 80's here for a long time. That's why I said "(you can't blame me for dreaming)".

Well, I saw something today that got me chomping at the bit even more than I was already. On my way home from work I was going across the 494 Wakota bridge. I took a peek over the edge to see the boat launch, and to my surprise I saw someone... (someone who probably frequents this website I might guess.)

\:D

Anywho, there was a guy with a boat (still on the trailer) hacking away at the ice on the launch ramp with an ice chopper!

\:D

It's good to see others who will go to such desparate measures just to get at some open water.

K guys/gals I dont know about posting links here, but I found a great little one on a site called:

www. timeleft. info

^ No spaces of course.

That site has a great little timer you can download for free. Small and click to drag around your desktop. Pretty easy to figure out as well.

That timer is great! I downloaded it on my PC at work. I had been crossing days off on a small calendar for the last month or so. This is much more convenient.

      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.
