Ice Fishing Season

2 posts in this topic

Looks like the end to the season is here, a little earlier than normal. Still had some anglers out on the ice this weekend and they left today with buckets of perch, crappie and sunfish, but with the rains over the weekend the season is done due to the shorelines, with the exception of those anglers with an argo! This season more folks explored many of the lakes in the area and had some pretty good fishing, and we explored some lakes that we hadn't ice fished on, so all in all a great season. Hope that everyone was able to spend some time on the ice this year, but looks like now it's time to start thinking about getting the boat ready and figuring out what new gear we're going to need for open water.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
