I went out to check on the ice Sunday at 11:30. I checked right off the boat landing and it was about 5 inches. Probably more by now.

Shoot, I wish I would have seen your post sooner.

I had planned to be off work all week due to gallbladder surgery last week and I was feeling better, and was getting a little stir crazy sitting around the house, so I decided to go back to work today.

The idea to go ice fishing had crossed my mind but since it was going to be so cold I figured might as well go to work. Let us know how it goes, I’d be interested in making a trip out there in the near future.

Threw all the stuff in the truck after work. I was thinking about hitting a small lake near my house but I could easily change my plans and be at Sarah around noon tomorrow. Have you been on the ice yet?

No problem. I just went over to a little puddle near my house for a few hours. Man was it cold. Not too much happening. A few small sunfish and perch. I never did find them crappies. It was good to dust the cob webs off the auger and wet a line. Thinking about making a trip out to Sarah on Sunday.

Hope you got the car fixed.

By the way there was about 8 or 9 inches of ice.

      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.

      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

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
