I was told by a friend on Sun. there was no ice at all, not a bit. But after last night I'm sure there will be some. He is going to call me later in the week, I'll let everyone know what the conditions are.

God Bless

I went by there yesterday and there was one small sheet of ice in the center of the channel otherwise completely open.... I would say it MIGHT be fishable this weekend if the wind stays down.... but that doesn't look like it is going to happen so it might be a bit longer before we can get in the channel on the ice

She was froze over this AM... but not safe by any means! South end of the lake got a sheet of ice last night as well.. still looks like the main lake has some open water... South Center is still almost 85% open water.

Update--- It looks like the channel opened up and refroze again last night. There is some really rough ice out there that probably isn't froze all that well.. Chisago side of the lake has a thin sheet all the way across it as of this morning 11/29.. but I would say that S. Lindstrom(the other side of the channel) is still 25% open water. South Center still has a lot of open water as well.

Deitz,

I know everyone wants to get out. Someone went through the Ice on Coon lake in the Channel a few days ago. Let's EVERYONE PLAY IT SAFE at least for another 5 days or so. If we get the 6-12 inches of snow, we've got a mess on our hands.

There's a house out by pancake. Don't know how he got out there. But he is always the first one out there every year. Lot of open water out there.

It takes a "special breed" or whatever you want to call it. It's just not worth it - at least to me!! I'll wait awhile

Someone went through on Coon Lake because of some stupid cops flying through the channel in an air boat....

True, but PRETTY STUPID to try and get out at that time. I would think someone's life is a little more important than fish!!!

Anyone attempt to go out on the Chisago/Lindstrom channel over the weekend? I like it when we have single digit temps over night. laugh.gif

We checked the channel on Saturday and there were four or five groups. Decided to head to the bay on Chisago off 83 since we heard there was more ice. Check out the previous Saturday report post.

Hit the channel last Saturday afternoon/evening for a couple hours. One group of 3 was coming off when we got there...and that was it for fishermen at the time. The group said the fishing was poor, and that the other groups that had been fishing all left as well. So a buddy and I carefully checked our way out to a spot and fished. We found the ice to be about 4" or so. Fishing was slow, we got a few small crappies and a 15" walleye. I had another walleye on that came off close to the hole. While punching holes I did find an area of ice that was definitly less ice than 4 inches so its important to check ice as you go. The amount of snow we were getting seemed to cause some wet or dark areas on the ice where holes were drilled as well. So I would be really cautious next time out. I'll probably wait until this weekend to get out...hopefully things will be a little more froze up by then. Be safe...there's a long winter to fish.

Thanks for the update.

Sounds like waiting a few more days couldn't hurt. Unfortunately the hardwater season seems to be getting shorter and shorter.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks
