Just wondering if anybody has an ice condition/fishing report for Turtle Lake in Shoreview. I am heading there this Sunday, and haven't been on it yet this year. Any info would be great, especially if there are some bad spots to avoid!

Merry Christmas!!! grin.gif

Thanks,

CJH

As of last week, ice conditions were fine for foot travel. Some 4-wheelers and sleds also out. I've punched holes with as little as 5" and as much as 9", with a couple inches of frozen slush on top of that. This includes holes over deeper water. A few folks had started moving bigger perms out.

Can't say fishing was fabulous for me, though I was jigging for 'eyes. Talked to a friend who has been catching panfish.

I was out on Saturday morning (12/22) and had a good 11" where I was fishing. Lots of slush and water on the ice. It was a tough drag out with the portable. I worked up quite a sweat. Didn't mark anything on the Vexilar or see anything on the Aqua-Vu. Was thinking about going back out on Sunday evening so I stopped by the landing earlier in the day an saw a car on the ice near the rock pile out from the access. I decided to stay home and watch the Vikes.... Should have gone fishing.

Thanks for the update! That's plenty of ice for me and my Fishtrap Guide, though I don't know how much I am going to be pulling it around with the snow! wink.gif

I am leaning towards targeting pannies, so hopefully we'll see some action! You never know with the inconsistent weather patterns we have been having lately!!

Thanks again!!

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
