Which weekend and which boat? Mmmmm...

5 posts in this topic

What is everyones opinion on the fishing for this weekend vs. next weekend. I know its hard to tell but we have plans to head up this friday - monday. We only have two people going and we have the option to take a 14 lund/9.5 johnson or we can take a 19 sylvan/175 mercury. I have only fished the areas between birchdale and the church. I just am looking for some good tips or info.

My brain cant take the stress!!!! Other years have never been this hard to plan. My wife is ready to kick me out of the house grin.gif !!

I am heading up Sunday thru Wednesday. Bringing my 16 foot lund with 90hp. Hope the weather holds out and it is not to cold. I would bring the smaller boat if I had the option.

I've seen two guys in a 12' flat bottom with a 5 hp briggs and stratton. I'm bringing a 16' lund w/ 25 merc but we have four guys which will be nice if we have to push across a little ice.

      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
