I'm going to give Circle a try. On a map it looks pretty straight forward.

Mossy, do you like pushing your boat off the trailer and winching it back on? If you go to gorman thats what your gonna have to do. Was there last night and it didn't matter how far you back in, I couldn't get the trailer wheels submerged. I heard scotch is the same way but have not had the ambition to try.

On the plus side I guess I did rinse out the exhaust on the truck!

I'll say it; bed. Heading to the N end sand on Mille Lacs from my parent's house ~4:30 am.

Good luck to all!

Guppie, it doesn't bother me to push the boat of or to winch it on. I only have a little 14fter with a 9.9 motor on it, so it is light. I have been to Gorman hundreds of times and have had to do it everytime. Thanks for the heads up though.

I had hoped to be on Lura, but everyone I have talked to wants to "sleep".

I might do the same if I don't get any takers. Not much fun fishing alone.

My fishing and hunting partner I could count on moved to Florida!!!

At least now I've been having thoughts of gator hunting...

I'll have to say bed too. I'm working a 16hr shift on Friday and another 8 on Saturday morning. A disadvantage of working rotating shifts/days off. Sunday's for momma so I'll probably hit the lakes Monday and Tuesday. One advantage of working rotating days off. grin.gif

I'll be in bed also, someone always wants to look at homes that day for some reason, so work for me in the morning, hopefully by mid-afternoon will be a go for a bit.

They should just designate "Opener" as a State Holiday, just as x-mas, easter etc... Shut everything down... grin.gif

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

        Nice fish , great pics ,, what times of the day were best for you ?

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?
    • Billy G
      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore. 
    • sartellangler05
      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?
