RAINEY RIVER 3;01 am the 26th.

6 posts in this topic

Cant sleep dreaming off all those piggies to be caught on the river. Do I hook up the boat this morning and just go, or do I go to work? should I bring a chain saw to cut open the ramp? hmmmm Do the locals get in thier fishing before they tell the world? I hate to miss out on work and shorten my fishing time because I went to early. Hmm Dreaming of the Rainey and having a toothache at 3am does funny things to a man................ confused.gif I think i am headed down today gents I'll find a way to put the 18 ft lund in the water. wink.gif welllll maybe I'll wait two days.. what the heck I guess I can bring the plans computer, and fax and get some work done from the cabin on the river. I,m a genius. Leaving D.L today gents. wink.gif stop and say hey. Kirk from D.L. 1775 lund blue over tan 115 mercury. HOTRODS to all you guys. the toothache can wait..

Welp was thinking about leaving Friday 3pm from D.L. But, my guess is birchdale still wont be open by Saturday morning. Man I cant take this, my wife keeps asking when are you going and I keep telling her maybe tomorrow. I think she is ready to throw me out. I need to buy a small boat too dear! confused.gif

Thanks for the offer no. I went and visited a good friend this weekend in Roseaue and most of the locals are waiting tell wednesday. My guess is mid next week for the bite. I may go in my boat at that time.

      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
