In the Annandale to Maple lake areas, there are people still fishing, but the shoreline areas are getting dicey.

This might be something you don't want to hear...I am looking forward to open water, so bring it on. Nav

I'm hearing reports of 18" yet but take that with a grain of salt, I haven't punched a hole in awhile and these 50's are going to take their toll on the ice.

I walked the shoreline of Augusta last night and had to search for a place to get on. Also, areas with leaves and branches that the fall winds blew into drifts on the lake are almost holes now.

So bring planks if you're going to give it a whirl....and be careful!

There are people out on the north end of Sugar but that lake turned really black today. With the temp only gettin down to 45 tonight and the possibility of rain I would get out now if your gonna go.

I had no problem getting on an area private lake yesterday and Lake Sarah on Monday, but I think this is our last weekend coming up. Ice was still 12in. plus on both lakes.

Go get yourself some open water action below the Mill Pond dam between Marie and Caroline. At this time of year there are Carp, Suckers, Crappie, Sunfish, bullheads, perch, walleye, and pike to be caught and best of all you can cast and don't have to stare down a hole.

They where still walking on Maple, And I walked way out on Big today. I wasn't fishing, just wishing. Both where pretty good walking ice, even after the rain. Won't be long though.

At this point i would say to stay off clearwater if you can even get on the ice from shore. last time out it was rather eerry to have the ice flexing under me as i walked out

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
