7 posts in this topic

Not looking for specifics.... Has any one been catching some crappies or sunnies? I have not gotten out to fish yet, hoping to get out Thursday till Sunday, if it gets approved by the chief executive officer of the household ya know? Better get to work on the honey-do list. grin.gif

Poked around for about a half hour yesterday. Not much time to do any real searching, but the water seemed a tad cold yet.

Hopefully I can give a better effort this afternoon.

Wow that is so cool, it is such wonderful thing for a youngster to catch a trophy sized fish. Warms my soul. My daughter has been out on the lake with Dad since she was just over 3 months old. She is now 26 and continues to catch more or the largest fish it seems every time we go out, and you know that is just okay with me. She is now pregnant with my first grandchild due in late May or June and I am sure the tradition shall continue.

She does love to fish.... Same lake 2 years ago she caught a 29 inch walleye... I have fished the same lake for years and have never caught anything that big....

Poked around a little bit and found a few sunnies and a couple of mauler bullheads, LOL. Lost a nice crappie because I did not think I needed the net. The look the dog gave me was priceless. grin.gif

      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
