ALWAYS!

although it's probably not going to be at fosters this winter frown.gif, There's always a chance I may be able to make it down sometime this winter....

The last time I was able to ice fish fosters was in Feb of '04 a few weeks before my daughter was born. I managed to pull three nice brookies about 15" out from under the ice. Definitely a great memory to keep of the place!

I enjoy the bow bite at fosters. Tis always fun to wrestle one of those buggers up the hole with light panfish gear.

they harvest eggs in the spring; by fall the juveniles are about 10" long and ready to be stocked as "yearlings"

They stock it pretty regularly all year long. I know they do at least once in the spring, and once in the fall. Last winter they stocked it at least twice, once before the kids fishing contest and then again later in the winter.

Yes, they will stock Fosters all year long. They are usually pretty good about stocking before any long holiday weekend. Also before kids fishing derbys as mentioned above.

During the winter months, they cut a hole in the ice near the NE corner of the lake and pump trout in.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
