checked second lake today(sat) 2 1/2-3 inch right out from our house, the hole in the middle just froze. chisago channel, 2 inch with like at least 4 groups of people out, it made me nervous. green by south access 3-4 inch. still a stretch of open water by the park on the point on south center.

the lake was open as of a week and a half ago and with the snow fall covering and insulating it, just becareful. There was people fishing in spots on the channel that had open water just a few days before. Dont assume, make sure to check before you go and dont trust someone elses tracks, unless your the twig guy. Like I have always heard, make sure to have a "bigger" guy go out ahead of you first, then you know its safe! grin.gif

otterman...there is another post in this forum about south center...so hopefully they'll be some good ice info posted there soon. I have heard from the bait store that people have been getting out by pancake island and in the bay by Hazeltine. South Center is such a good panfish lake that usually you can get some fish during some part of the day. It always amazes me the pressure that lake (and all chisago lakes) get and still produce so many fish. Pack light...as some areas have made hauling gear tough.

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
