Walli1

Can you feel it? Does this cold front get you excited, I've been getting pumped up! This is just what is needed to fire up the bite, seems I can't think of much else besides gettin down to the river for some great fishing and some relaxation! I got plenty of redtails in the tank that are more than willing to sacifice their life to make my fishing trip more enjoyable! Fishing anyone! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I am hoping to get a kitchen pass to go out for at least a couple hours Saturday am...I can sense a feeding frenzy with it dropping to 30's and then jumping to low 50's....

I'm really trying my best to get down to the river tomorrow morning and give it a shot! For sure I'll be on the river early saturday morning, should be on the water around 4ish, just love being on the river early, it doesn't get much better. I've been watching this artic blast and it should be all moved on by friday and weather should be stable for the weekend I'm sure the bite is going to be unreal!

Hey Walli, have you ever concidered taking someone out with you? I've been dying to get on the river this year and lost my boat to a hole I found from the last owner. Thought it would hurt to ask.

Sorry to hear about your boat, I broke the spline and bent the struts in mine last year, got it welded up and its been leak proof till about a month ago and now its leaking again, if its not able to be fixed I'll take the insurance money and put the money towards another one, got a line on a proV and the wife seems to be okay with it. I don't have a problem taking people fishing, I've taken alot of people down on the river over the years, where do you live? I'm fishing by myself 65% of the time, I could fit you in! grin.gif

That would be great Walli!! I live in St. Paul. I can meet you wherever. I've been off for a couple of weeks and have about a week and a half more off from work, so I'm open to any times. You can email me at s_e_hendricks@comcast.net and I'll give ya my cell number or you can just let me know a place to meet ya. I'll chip in for gass/bait. I'm having an adjuster look at my boat. There's the holes that are around a grand and then the transom is loose so that's another grand. I'm thinkin' I'll take the insurance money and use the trailer and motor on a new boat.

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
