Diamond Ice

Has anyone seen the lake recently enough to give an ice report? Was hoping to at least get a 4wheeler out there next week.

You should be A Ok this weekend 6&7 Next weekend 13&14 may just be walkable. Give me a call when you get home and I'll let you know. Do you ever go to class?

Good to hear. When you are filled early enough there is no need to skip class! These fish have had it much easier than the birds did this fall though. If I dont end up workin all week we could go find some slabs.

walleyewacker,

when you refer to "filling early enough" so as not having to skip class, do you mean filling out I.E. got your limit?? please check out the Ice Fishing Main Forum and the thread regarding protecting panfish. i'm not condemning keeping a limit of crappies, but if they are big ones, think twice about keeping them. i know it's hard to break old habits, but we need to start to think about the panfish too. keeping a limit of smaller ones is not the norm, but is usually more beneficial to the fishery that taking 10 10+" crappies. just my thoughts, and a few others. good luck fishing . later...

Whoa easy fellas....as in class he meant here...at SDSU... in SD. And filling up I meant greenheads and geese from this fall. Kind of a joke hope no one took it that serious. Especially with diamond, I treat that lake like my own kid. Glad to see more people care like I do.

Good to hear from you Juneau4. You let me know when the swamp heats up. My father-in-law makes it sound like it's always hot, I think he just wants me to get home and fish with him more!

How will our Warriors be this coming year? I don't think I could name a player anymore. I sure miss the good ole days!

I finally get to talk some smack with your son again, he just joined one of Houtie's fantasy leagues again. Good to hear from him.

Talk to you later

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
