Went out of Breezy Point yesterday morning. Measured 13" of ice. 

 

Thanks for the heads up. After this next cold week of below temps I may have to give it a try next weekend.

Any updates on ice conditions, ridges, snow depth?  I haven't been up since before Christmas, will be heading out this weekend.  I'm planning on getting my wheelhouse out, would prefer to pull it with the pickup...hopefully that's possible now with the cold weather recently.

Yup, guys pulling large wheelhouses all over now. I've had 15-16" ice and snow depth isn't an issue

Thanks for the report will be up Sat & Sun with a sled and porty. Any bare ice spots, or can I leave the cleats at home?

Just heard some guy died going through the ice on a sled in Wis, always makes you think twice about the ice. :(

Going to be another cold weekend.

Definitely leave the cleats at home. Lakes are blanketed with several inches

Great thanks. Any word on the ice ridges off either side of Gooseberry that happen most years?

Slow fishing for us. Caught a few small crappies and sunfish out of Breezy point access. Heard of a few walleyes being caught but nothing great. Spent more time snowmobiling this year then fishing so not much to report. Used the truck to pull wheel house off lake so plenty of ice now.

Thanks!  Have you seen any ice ridges by Gooseberry or Lincoln's Point?

Nothing off the north or west side of Gooseberry. I haven't seen the other side yet

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
