Last Ice...congratulations! It is a ways off, and this time of year I don't know many that are itching for ice...but it is inevitable. There is no resort right on the lake. Lake Henry is an 'in town' lake....all private home around it. Closest resort is Arrowwood. Otherwise the Holiday Inn and the rest of the hotels on the strip by I-94 (4-5 miles from the lake) Our shop is actually only a few blocks from City Park, where they have the staging/weigh in area. Lake Henry had a summer kill last august that really mad a dent in the panfish population. Talked with a few of last years championship participants, and it was tough fishing....the size and numbers just weren't there as they've been in the past....hope for a good draw and get out there early.

good luck...

Last Ice...Arrowwood resort is on Lake Darling...on the northwest side...it's golf course is across the road from lake louise. It was formerly a Radisson resort...now independent. They'll have their big indoor water park done by then smile.gif

Any of the other hotels or BB's will suit your location to Henry. Check out the Alex chamber website for more info on lodging.

good luck...
we're here if you need more info!

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
