I have a stove/oven in my house, CO's have never said a word, don't know what the difference would be. I don't know for sure, but I thought they made it legal to clean and eat fish on the ice this year.

My only thought would be they are trying to prevent people from dumping the coals on the ice. I've been out there before and seen trash like that...which is disheartening. I haven't heard any new rules about this though.

Been fishing LOW for about 20 years I have never heard anything about not being able to have a grill on the ice.

I've not heard anything ,but he was asking tonight.

I'm looking for laws.He has a gas grill to do steaks.

He was told last year he was asking for trouble by the locals.

Sure they were'nt 'terrorists' posing as locals? !!

Never heard of such and I've been around a while. I think I've even been checked by warden on 16mile while the grill was going once too just a coupla years back!

Half the big perms on the pond are probably equiped with a grill of some type, at least the local huts!!

Going up to LOW for the first time this winter...can anyone confirm if cleaning legal fish and frying them up for a meal one night is legal? thanks!

O.K. I guess I jumped the gun. I just talked to the DNR and they said it was legal to clean and eat fish on a lake that has no slot limit. So L.O.W. is not legal yet. The lady I talked to said that this was going to change, but she did not know exactly when. She said there would be a bullitin put out when this happens, so hopefully it will happen yet this season. Sorry for getting your hopes up, I know mine were. We always spend at least 2 days sometimes 3 in my sleeper, it sure would be nice to eat a days catch while we are there.

I just finished listening to Curts radio program and the CO that he had as a guest definitley said YOU CAN clean and eat walleys as well as sauger on LOW. They are looking for the remains to be kept intact however for measurement purposes. LOW has a slot limit and this practice is now legal. Good luck and hang on. Bill

OK. The CO on the show had been to the seminar on the

new rules and regs for this season. If they are not

in effect yet, they will be soon. Sorry for any confusion

but nobody is out in sleeper houses yet. It is set to

start by the time we need it.

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.

      To bad HSO doesn't have something like this for the Leaders board Top Members contributions. 😕

      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!

      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
