Alma float update

6 posts in this topic

The Float was hard on use today. It was a great day to fish but a bad one to catch. 4 of use only caught about 7-8 fish in 12 hours. They really didn't want anything we put in front of them. However there where a ton of boats and I think they did a little better. I guess they did better on Fri. I would like to tell Chad great job on the ONE fish you caught that was only 14.5 inches. grin.gifgrin.gif J/K. All in all we had a good time and Tim from the float had some great smoked fish mmmm mmm good. Well I wish i was writing to say we hammered them. I hope you guys have good luck out there this week. I won't be returning till may 19th. Please keep me posted on how you guys are doing. I may get ill one day and have to stay home from work. wink.gifwink.gif

GOOD LUCK

The hours are 6a.m.-6 p.m. or when ever you want to come back. It will be cheaper to fish the float that is why I don't take my boat and the fact that they catch more fish off the float most days the other thing you don't have to figh the water to try and stay in one spot. The cost is $15 for the day. They have Bait out there. And food. Have fun and good luck

      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
