Fished two different lakes. Caught nothing on Lake #1 and three walleyes and a pike on the second lake. Dragging minnows on a jig seemed to work, although I saw others using crawlers and leeches with luck too. Fished the windy side but I think that's changing tomorrow with a south wind. Should have had my limit with a couple on and then off and a broken line on another. The ones that got off felt like nice fish too....but aren't the ones that get off always nice? wink.gif

It was fun to finally put the new boat to work instead of just putting around. Lots to learn about it yet.

Didn't see any issues at the ramps and everyone was pretty friendly on the water. Must have been because the fish were cooperating and everyone is out again.

Nice work guys! Sure was a nice day to be on the water, although we had lightening and some heavy downpours where I was at. We found the 'eyes shortly before we saw lightening, but after the weather moved out, the fish slid deeper and were less agressive. Caught 4 'eyes from 15" - 17.5" and a couple snakes and sheepies to boot. Missed a couple 'eyes too, as is to be expected. tongue.gif

Thank goodness the season is here! laugh.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
