ok. those of you that know me know that i live for the hard water season. so it is very hard for me to post this. i do believe it may just be time to put OPEN WATER back to the top. like i said it pains me to say so but this way i can start to count the days before ice fishing gets its place back there next fall. the boat is almost ready to be parked in the garage. so dad can get it ready for the summer. and the hobie cat is showing its gleem waiting to see some spring and summer winds. and on that note how about a sailing forum here in Hso. we have forums for many other things outdoor related. well sailing involves outdoors and water. i would even be interested in moderating this forum i am not by any means an expert. but i just thought id toss that in for a response. ... paul

I have been wondering when this would surface. I have been keeping track each time I log in and so far Ice Fishing always has more visitors than open water. I thought that was the determining factor? I guess when ya get right down to it, the weather speaks more to open water than the great grand glorious hardwater fishing. frown.gifmad.gif Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Wednesday, March 28, 2007 15:35 CDT. It is with heavy heart that I must report 32 people on the open water forum and only 30 on the Ice Fishing forum. mad.gif Alas, I guess that time has come! Oh well, think of the swimsuits we will be seeing soon! See there is one good thing about summer! No, that is not sexist either as I know that the ladies like to check out the swimsuits as well. grin.gif Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

nytelyter, just rig up some pontoons under your house and get some anchors. Then you could just fire up the auger and spin it around a few times just for fun. Make sure you have your 07-08 shelter liscence so you so the CO's don't give you a ticket! grin.gif

Bring on the soft water!!!!

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      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....
