I would say probably as Forest is all the way open and is larger then most of the lakes in Chisago. Call Frankies bait they'll let you know.

as of about 9pm last night, Green still had some ice on it, not a ton, but there was still ice there, the boat landing was clear, but a shift in the wind would change that. As of this morning (monday) South Center still had quite a bit of ice(maybe 50%?), the boat landing was free, but again a shift in the wind and it wouldnt be. Chisago was clear of ice(still some piled on the shore in places) Kroon was clear of ice. I didn't see north center, I would assume it was clear.

South Center, North Center, North and South Lindstrom and the Greens all still have tons of ice. I drove by this morning and looks like its is going to be a week or so with the cold weather we have right now. I hope it is off earlier but its not looking good right now.

Forest lake one is wide open right now and ready to fish, the other 2 basins I haven't had a chance to look at but one was wide ope as far as the eye could see and that was aided with binoculars.

Matty might want to set up your ice shack inside your boat and fish out of it from the sounds of the weather for the next few days! grin.gif

The wind tok care of most of the lakes last night...I wonder if there has ever been a year where they thawed and re-froze?

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
