Was wondering how the ice conditions for Shaw's Reef. Planning to come up this weekend. Hope there's enough ice to walk out on.

Took the sled out over a mile today out to Shaw's Reef. Never found a spot with less than 7 inches of ice. It might be tough to get out there with a wheeler as we have 15-16 inches of snow, but it's all good with a sled. We will have the beginnings of a marked road in place by the weekend.

Dodgeman98: I found that site and when I attempt to open the cam I get error messages IE: your not connected to the Internet etc. I'm no computer guru so kind of lost at this point. Guess I'll just have to wait until I get up there and see it in real time. thanks, Bill

bill,

here is the url:

its been wonderful seeing what the current conditions are. their camera is only still shots every 15 seconds. but you can still see whats happening.

im still thinking about making the trip saturday. tomorrow im getting the boat back...finally. if i get it home in one piece, it will be ready to go for fishing next open-water season. the last two weeks surprised me...i still have to get things out of it for the winter and clean the road salt off.

im just not sure about walking far to a spot on saturday. we'll see what my fishing buddies say. that could be the incentive to head up...

shaws reef/doe island is a great spot thats not too far. rocky reef on the southwest side is close too, although ive never ice fished there.

regards,

minnesotatuff

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Who hates when your monofilament line wants to come off your reel. Let me share some tips and tricks with you on spooling your reel and help fixing this problem. https://youtu.be/CkFtOHn9nm0

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.
