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!!

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!  
    • leech~~
      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
