Its not Coon Rapids or Anoka but the East shore of Phalen in Saint Paul is a decent spot - or at least it used to be. Its only about a 25 minute ride from Anoka. Head north from Larpentuer and start fishing in front of the house with the red and white striped awning. You should be able to cast to about 15-18 feet from shore and I've caught a few eyes from a boat out there before. Also there is a sandy point farther south just to the north of Arlington which could be good. Its an outboard free lake so I don't think the fish get much pressure. Good luck.

Not necessarily in that area but we have good luck on Clearwater Lake in Forest Lake. pulled three eyes out on Monday, one 26" the others around 13".

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
