140 has actually been closed for quite a while where 147 intersects to 212 in Chaska - it is tough getting around out this way frown.gif

Correct!

140 is also closed.

Basically every road, including the little dirt ones, is closed that is north of 212 and south of 5. If you need to be anywhere north of the river you have to take 5 and if you want to be south of the river you can head south out of Cologne and go to 169 in Jordan.

I am not sure how long it will be but roomer has it that it will be 6 weeks.

Also a heads up. Yesterday I thought I might be able to make it threw on 212 and I got pulled over by the cops. She was real nice but informed me that there will ONLY be local traffic allowed.

Just wait, 284 from Wac to Cologne is also closing in about a month. You will need a helocopter to get into Wacoina.

Guys, 212 will only be closed for a month, but then that is when 284 will close. Other options for for Western Carver County Folk to to take 140 east to County 43 North to County 10/Engler Blvd and take that east into Chaska.

This does suck. But in a year or two when 212 is finally done, it'll all be worth it...for awhile until it really starts to grow out in God's country!!

I get to drive from Lakeville to Hutch every day (at least for a while yet) and I forgot until I got to Chaska on Monday. It really only took an extra 10 minutes or so to go up to 7. Changed my route through Jordan now though and there sure is a lot of traffic that way too (assumably for the same reason I'm there). My wife is having a tough time getting to downtown too with the work on Cedar and the 35W/62 work about to get into fully swing so it's not just you guys on 212.

Milling off the old blacktop, adding turn lanes, and prepping the site where the New 212/312 will connect to it. Pain in the A##, but it needed to be done. Some sections of 212 were in pretty bad shape. I just wish they would have done a little more planning. It's almost impossible to get through Chaska. Morning or evening! mad.gif

It is a pain. I was on my way to work on friday morning, and witness as head on crash by hwy 25. Man, what a reality check. It was the car in front of me that was hit. Everyone ended up ok.

I have been taking back roads to jordan, from cologne, to get to shakopee. The problem is, its adding 15 mins on the time. Ya there is not traffic, but man, i cant wait till they get it all back to normal.

I was in cologne on Suday for a grad party and came through belle plaine on my way there...on the way home I noticed 212 was closed and I had no clue how to get back to Shakopee without backtracking to BP or Waconia....so I played dumb and took 212....made it all the way through without a problem...good thing it was a sunday I guess. There still were a bunch of cars on it for being closed though.

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure 
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
