Thursday Night..fun with ice

3 posts in this topic

Thursday night luvenlifeguy and decided to head up the pond and give trolling a last go of things. We hit terrys about 7:00 and were able to make one pass all the way down to Garrison. Ended up picking up 4 fish largest being 21 63/64 which we threw back. Then on our return trip we saw a Grede standing on the water. Not a good thing. For the next 30 min we battled with the ice that was forming around the boat. The ice was just a small skim but it was enough to pull our lures to the top of the water. Not very much fun so we tried out a little deeper in 10ft. We were able to fish here for about 10 min and then the same thing happend so we called it a night at 10:30. Not a great last trip with the boat but all in all it was a good fall. Hopefully it will get warm next week and we can get out again. Frusterating night but what can you do

We went out of Eddy's and had the same luck with the ice, but not the fish, not a touch. We fished from 2-16'. Once the ice came we decided to boot out. We had to break some through 2-3" of ice in the harbor to pull the boat. I'm glad we left when we did!

The ice problem was minor but the fishing was unbelievable!

      Rainbows are typically stocked.  Check the DNR for locations.      SE Minnesota, Whitewater, Root river systems have nativized brown trout.     But if you just want meat, go to costco.   Buy them it is cheaper.

      Update: APR 27, 2017 — We requested a meeting with school administration to see HOW we could make this work - how we could break down barriers and open pathways. Sadly, we were declined. We are moving forward and will be presenting our petition signatures, research and plan to the school board on May 8th. Please help us get to 500 Plus!!  signatures! Thank you!! JKJKODA

      The Department of Natural Resources celebrates Arbor Day on Friday, April 28, and Arbor Month in May by recognizing the health benefits of trees in Minnesota.  Trees and forests provide numerous health benefits such as: Helping reduce skin cancer. Decreasing mental stress and promoting healing. Cleaning the air and reducing childhood asthma rates. Reducing stressful noises by 50 percent. Providing healthy fruits and nuts. “Getting your daily dose of trees is good for your health and easy to do,” said Jennifer Teegarden, DNR forestry outreach specialist. “You can climb a tree, go camping, sit under a tree, take a hike or visit a forest.” To encourage people to get a daily dose of trees, the DNR is launching the #31DaysOfTrees challenge during Arbor Month. Simply post a photo or video while getting a daily dose of trees on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Use the hashtag #31DaysOfTrees and include @MinnesotaDNR when posting to Facebook. Participation will be tracked using hashtag #31DaysOfTrees. Participants may win one of five state parks permits and have 10 trees planted in their honor in a Minnesota state forest. The more times a person posts enjoying their daily dose of trees, the more chances they’ll have to win. Participants must be 18 years or older and a Minnesota resident to win a prize. Visit the DNR’s Arbor Month webpage to watch videos of Minnesotan’s getting their daily dose of trees and how trees improve health. Additional details on the #31DaysOfTrees challenge and a listing of local Arbor Day celebrations can also be found on the Arbor Month webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
