flyfshrmn,

first thing is you may want to try the potlack dam in brainerd. The Crow Wing State park is a good access but to get to any "if" any deep wholes that hold any fish is very risky. The water is rising but still very dangerous to navigate for even the seasoned river rat. There is easier fishing below the dam that will easiely give you a better opertunity for more fish and better quality. The locals do fish it and have allot of success right now, but do where your life jacket because the water now will give you hipothermia real quick. Good luck and let us know how you do.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
