Memorial Weekend

4 posts in this topic

I'm going to camp at chief wooden frog memorial weekend, was planning on going up late thursday night and arriving early friday morning to setup camp. Now I won't be able to leave until friday evening and arrive late friday night. I know that's going to affect what campsite I'll be able to get...which leads me to my next question...as big as that campground is, could it possibly be full if I get there that late?

I would doubt it, however if fishing is good and there is a great forecast weatherwise for that weekend, it could fill up. I would venture to say over the last few years it hasn't filled, many kids still in school that weekend so that would be in your favor. good luck, guts

Woodenfrog has lots of sites. I would say you will be ok. If by chance it would be full. Try Arrowhead Resort which is right next to it. They have a campground .

I hear the ice is still pretty strong up there. Pending ice out, how will that affect the fishing that time of year?

      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
