Whent out of Adrians on Friday, got set up about 3 in the afternoon an figured this time of day better go shallow, hit 16 feet an drilled, thought that if I caught anything it would be big. Only fish my son an I caught was 27"cher Man was that a thrill, as much as I icefish thats my personal best through a hole. Pictures an a release. Sat. I proceeded to dig out my sleeper from Twin Island an my son sat an monitered the rattle reels an filled out on walleyes by noon, had some slow time an peeled off the skirting an chiped out the tires an stuff, nick kept fishing for fun an everytime I went outside he caught a fish, when i would come in he'd say " dad get out so I catch a fish " Man did we have a good time. We or I should say he caught 30 plus walleyes from 15 to 19.5 Did dads heart good. He's a slightly autistic with aspergers syndrom an his interest are very narrow but intense an fishing is'nt one of them. The Good Lord really shone on us that day. He did'nt baulk on any of the effort that it takes to go icefishing an was as average as any kid out icefishing.I wont forget that day ever. Sun. brought clouds an snow an we picked up two an went in at eleven to pack up an leave. This weekend we are him an I are taking his buddy upfor onelast sleeper weekend an I hope the fish are on.

We went out (group of 5) on Adrian's road on the 16th and 17th. My buddy and I were in one portable, and three others in another. Friday, we were in about 26 fow and got set up about 1 pm, caught a few fish, couple walleys and sauger. We had heard that there was a pretty good bite in around 14-16 towards the evening so about 6 pm we moved into about 14 fow, between 6 and 9 got one eye at 14.5". Went back out early saturday morning and got to 27 fow and it was good action pretty much all day. We did keep a limit each and I got a fat 11.5" perch. Check out the photo sharing forum for some photos of the fish. We will deffinately be back up there next year, planning to make it an annual trip.

Thanks for sharing your good time and special moments with your son. I also had a special needs child stay with us for a while (we were foster parents), and I recognize that you have to cherish those moments that are special in between the hard times.

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      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
