CPTNTIM,On Tuesday, it was over 100 yards out on the co rd 7 side landing, I would think it should be open or at least mostly open. If I get a chance after work I can check it out. Unless someone else has more info. Good Luck. Lynn

As of this morning looking from the north side it did not appear to be completely open. Not too long though. If the wind picks up today should be gone by tommorow.

Looked good this afternoon. 4-5 boats at the north landing!

Hello all,

Was out on Sugar yesterday. There was ice in the middle of the lake early, then blew off completely by mid afternoon.

Three of us caught approx 60 crappies. Average size kept was about 10", with the biggest being 11 3/4". Good bite from morning until 1 pm.

Good luck cool.gif

Thanks for the report Lynn! Does anyone know who puts the docks in and when they do it? It's kind of a pain launching my boat without something to tie it to.

i do not know the answer to that, but guessing if they are DNR landing's it is the DNR, and now that the ice is out I would think hope It would be in a week or so. I will keep my eyes open and post any updates. Good luck everyone.Lynn

Whomever owns the landing normally puts them in. Usually DNR, county or city workers, and or private. I think they should be in a week or so if the weather stays decent.

Went out yesterday, about 75-100 sunnies, nothing worth keeping. No crappies, a few accidental bass. Saw 2 muskies in the water, a northern, about 30 turtles, 2 snappers about the size of a garbage can lid. At least it kept me busy.

I highly doubt it though the weather we have had in the past few days would make a guy think there could be ice grin.gif

No ice CptnTim, just open water for however far you can see!!

      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.

      Then Crooked lake pier fits the bill they like corn or worms   or what city are you looking around?

      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.
