They are catching some nice walleyes at the Jackson dam.

I think the duck opener should be good. there are quite a few ducks around. My younger brothers went out for the youth hunt and saw alot of ducks but they only shot holes in the sky!

I think the shallow bite for walleyes will be taking off on area lakes if it hasn't already. Start casting shorelines with raps or a jig and twister and you should find some eyes. Those spots on the des moines river that are accessible should be good too like 123fish stated.

If you are going to hunt the area I think you are there were by far the most ducks and quite a few honkers at that location compared to any place else in that general vicinity other than possibly the big area a few miles north of there that I didn't look at last Saturday.

Thanks for the info. I got a phone call today and a report of the usual spot full of mallards and woodies. I cant wait for saturday morning to get here. I'll be getting the boat out tomorrow night and convert it back into duck mode. I don't bother hunting those other more northerly spots until a few weeks into the season when the crowd tends to thin out a little.

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
