Snowshoes

Anyone know a lot about snowshoe or own a pair. I was looking at getting some to run my line this winter and to ice fish in the BWCA. I see that Cableas make some, I hear that Tubbs and Atlas are also good.

I use old wooden ones. The reason being is i can fix them on the line if i have too with parachute cord, etc... If I was not dealing with 30 below and colder i think you could easily get by with a nice pair from cabelas.

Buddies and I run the magnesium g.i. type,not the prettiest shoe out there compared to the wooden ones but maintenance free/lightweight and pretty much indestructible. There's several of them on EBay right now or you can often find them at army surplus stores. None of us have ever had any issues with them,great shoes.

Several of the state parks offer a class for building your own pair. Lake Maria's is the 22nd & 24th of January. Check the MN DNR homepage for a listing if your interested.

I had at one time a pair of Cabela's Alaskan Outfitter Series (green) snowshoes and I broke two different pairs. The people at Cabela's replaced the first set with the same kind and then they replaced the second set with their Outfitter Pro Series (yellow). I'm not sure who makes the Alaskan Series, but the Outfitter Pro Series is made by Atlas and I haven't had a problem since.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
