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.

Last time I saw it was in september and they had most of it completed. I'm planning on going there for the MN opener, hopefully it'll be done by then

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

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?

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
