Have they built this access yet? saw them getting all the rubble together for it but haven't been up there since. Will it be usable this spring by chance?

Yes it should be open this spring I can not wait this will help out a lot for smaller boats.

I can't wait. I would love to troll along there but I am not brave enough to launch from Loon's foot and boat all the way to the French grin.gif

Capt.Blaine

Loopers

Cohos

King Salmon

Lake trout

Steelhead

Most likely if you are fishing in close it will be a looper or Coho Salmon.

If the big pond is too windy I was gonna hit the st. louis as a backup. Because it's the walleye opener (and the st. louis opens 2 weeks earlier) will it be less crowded there than normal?

The St. Louis does not open 2 weeks earlier, it's the same as the rest of MN, unless they have made a significant change in the 2007 regs, which I have not seen or heard anything yet?

      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....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
