Friday, I went out on a small gravel pond and caught a few perch, blue gill, and a bass. Found out that the blades on my ice auger were dull, and just barely got through the ice. Drove up to worthington with hopes wal-mart would have replacement blades for my auger since I bought it there about 2yrs ago. No luck. Seen someone was out on Okabena with an eskimo quick fish. Hope they caought some walleyes.

Just want to know how thick the ice is on Okabena, Round, and Ocheda. Also is Marv's the closest place to get bait. Anyone having luck on any of the mentioned lakes?

I drilled about 20 holes in Templar Park seen one bluegill on the camera and caught it and only seen one bullhead in the other 19 or so holes there was about 3" of ice. There was also on die hard sitting on a bucket at the grade and one unhappy looking fellow leaving anglers bay he did walk out with his portable so im assuming he had around the average 3-4" not sure how far out he went though. Drove past Silver and Center both have ice but I didn't check to see how much. Fished Round Lake (MN) this afternoon on the south side caught to small perch and one small 13" walleye seen a several other small pech but no other walleyes. If the cold holds on through the week, the wind doesn't blow too much, and the snow doesn't insulate the ice too much next week should be a pretty good week for the protected areas.

Thanks, but I just ordered a new set from the jiffy site. Sucks, bet I paid at least $20 more for the blades with the shipping, won't have them here right away either.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
