I can wait till Monday night or so to fish, I and my 225 tush want to make absolute sure that there is plenty of ice before go out.

Be safe boys!!!

Wouldn't be able to take the look on the dog's face if I left without her. Still roosters left that need to die.

Wow! I am torn. Shoot roosters or get back on the ice for the third outing of the season? Im not sure if I can make my decision yet if there is ice on the IGL there will be no decision to make but if there isnt it will likely be to roosters in the morning and ice time in the afternoon assuming that we will be able to make it back out. It is important to be very careful of and know whats happening around you on the ice.

Another Cutsom Jigs and Spins afternoon

(The perch is just under 14")

Sarah has some very nice perch. First ice is a GOLDEN time to get them.

I may be stuck on Lime this weekend however. I borrowed a pal my truck for the weekend. Lime is walking distance, like a block.

Hey there perchpounder, I may not be fishing Saturday. I need to wait and see what the weather turns into.

45 mph wind, rain, sleet, and snow doesn't sound all that fun on the lake.

Sounds like a little slice of paradise to me! I'm planning on making my first trip to the IGL area tomorrow morning there are a few reports of fish being caught but i'd rather be the one reporting so i'll be out somewhere. If I don't make it to the lake there are still plenty of roosters around so ill be out and about somewhere no matter what the weather is. Maybe sunday will be better?

Is the rock burried yet? Im not too sure about tomorrow yet heading northward somewhere but can't decide where. Sarah seems a bit far for another exploratory mission. Got a report of a few walleyes coming out of West Graham among others and Talcot is traditionally a good first ice spot for me.

The rock is buried. I'll be pretty much the only guy on Lime Lake tomorrow. It's a total exploratory mission. I gotsa gut feeling the crappies will be hitting. Come on out.

I can't say i've ever caught a crappie in Lime lake. We have in years past catch some nice perch. I may just have to take you up on your offer but not until my co-angler calls me and tells me his game plan.

Nice fish.

Yeah, there are crappies in Lime Lake. I caught some yesterday. You really have to travel around and move to find them. I just got lucky yesterday.

      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.
    • JeremyCampbell
      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.
    • Borch
      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.
    • kelly-p
      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.
    • Horseshoe_Don
      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. 
    • pikeandchester
      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!
    • leech~~
      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
