Ran up Friday afternoon to get a couple houses out and ready for this coming week. 12" of good clear ice, almost zero snow to bank your house in... Set up in 19-20' of water in Allen's Bay, on a sand - mud break. Water looks a little cloudier than normal for Cass. Fished Friday night and only managed an eel pout... I snuck out and fished for 2 1/2 hours Saturday morning before needing to head home for Christmas. I was just catching and releasing... Activley jigging a small Chubby Darter with a minnow head was the trick... only 2 perch on my bobber line. Caught around 15 perch with maybe a half dozen over 10", only one walleye though....

NICE! I can't believe this...I fish all week and the biggest 'eye I get is 17", I leave friday night, and look what happens! Man, I'm jealous. Oh well, I'm getting outta here (central MN....yuck) early tomarrow morning so I can get in atleast one day of ice fishing before going back to work. But I can still hit the evening bite after that.

Hey Ken, I'll probably see you up there sometime later this week. We'll have to hit the ice sometime. I gotta spot thats been pretty nice to me as far as numbers go.

PikeBay, how are things looking for the Jan. 6th get-together? I still plan on showing up, but if you want to hit the ice before that, I'd be up for it.

Rob... we'll hook up and hit the ice. Are you working every day? We're trying to put a Red or LOW trip together on Thursday.

Matt call me when you get up there. I'm sure we could meet up and throw a few fish on the ice. My number is 651.341.4581

Come on over to Break on the Lake for New years eve... it's usually a riot of a party.

Good Luck!

Ken

Ken, I work from 6:00am to 2:30 pm everyday this week, except for friday. I had planned on coming back down here on friday, but I think those plans fell apart, so I'm sure I'll be free from Friday to Monday. Then again, with my job, I could get a call at any time saying that I have the day off. I might have to give you a call later on this week.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.
