I drove by Clear Lake today (3-29) about 10 am, and there was about 20' of ice "buildup" on the north shore, right out from the boat landing.

Other than that, the lake was open.

My 5 year old is getting the itch. He got a new fishing rod for Christmas, and open water can't come soon enough.

Not to mention I bought a new boat last fall and didn't get out nearly enough, maybe Dad's alittle itchy too???? Fishing wise??? blush.gif

Forest lake one is starting to give way with 50 yards of open water on the south shore today and a big rift in the middle of the lake so I'd say another day or two and a little wind and rain and it will be open as well.

Clear Lake was in the same condition today. It's pulled away from the shoreline, too.

SoHaad, give me a shout, I'm thinking Redwing or maybe a trout run up the shore. I have a stay at home weekend this weekend but maybe we can hit the Croix Good Friday if you are off.

Tunrevir,

Hey buddy, I've been meaning to give you a shout for weeks now. You know how it goes. I'll try calling you tonight. I may be getting a different boat. I'm also itching to get out on the Croix.

Forest Lake is really opening up today. There are several open areas, including areas in the middle. If our weather continues or get a good wind, it may be ice free by Monday.

FL one almost clear tonight and with the rain and wind I have to beleive it will be open by the weekend! Sohaad, I am planing on hittin the river on good Friday don't now if that works for you or not. The boat you have, my dad may be interested in it for a Florida boat and in that case you may get to fish from it again! He is looking for something to keep down there on the river and feels the Tin Can is not big enough, can you send me some specs on your boat? Might be a good deal for us all the way around!

Tunrevir~

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
