I was up there yesterday. Fished the north end of the lake from shallow to near the bottom of the break. Didn't mark any fish except one in about 7 feet of water. There wasn't much of a weedline anywhere. Caught a nice pike on a tipup with a shiner in about 6 feet of water and that was it. Most people on the north end were spearing. Noticed quite a few people on the east side but didnt venture over there.

Watch out for the blocks of ice that the spear fishers yank out of their holes. Most aren't marked and they look as if they could do significant damage to a vehicle.

Im not sure but I thought Sqare was a designated Trout lake? If so that would mean you cannot have live bait nor can you fish with 2 lines....IF someone else could chirp in I would apprecate it, it would be fun to watch the trout take a minnow or even have a tip up outside for those pesky toothy critters.

That's the funny part about lakes with trout in them. They can be called stream trout lakes or lake trout lakes. These lakes can then be classified as a designated trout lake or a trout lake with special regulations. It is the designated trout lakes that limit live bait and multiple line use. Square lake is a stream trout lake with special regulations. The special regulation is that you have to C&R the first 28 days of the season and in October, the rest of the time is a 2 fish bag limit. Bring your minnows and fish away.

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
