I was out there last night (Mahtomedi) and saw 3 full sized pickups out there. Good luck to them.

There are cars out where I am, I would not go out with only 8" of good ice in some areas, although i found some areas with 14 inches of really good ice in some areas...

ocf1, Were you out on Waconia? If so how did you do? I've been out there a few times this winter and haven't one very well - just small perch...

Cars and full size pickups all over the east side of Wayzata Bay Sunday. I stayed west of all the traffic and there was about 12 inches of ice.

There were a half dozen cars out on Johanna in Arden Hills yesterday. If anyone reads this, please do not attempt to drive on the west/northwest side of the lake. I was over there yesterday and the ice is definitely much thinner and slushier than the rest of the lake.

Tons of cars and trucks out on prior, there was no hesitation. no way would i drive a 3/4 ton on 9-10 inches you gotta be nuts to do that, or a fat lazy person. Oh and they were not afraid to drive right next to your house either. I was off the beaten path and had them driving within 5-10 yards of me all day. a-holes if you ask me

I was on Turtle in Shoreview yesterday, and there was 5-10 vehicles, alot of which were full size trucks. It was crazy. Had one guy get out of his perm, jump in his truck drive 50 ft to check a few holes, and then drove back to his house. Oh yeah, drove right next to a guy in a clam, and parked right next to 4 other vehicles. confused.gif Quality individual. I found spots that were only 7-8 in. thick. Not going back there anytime soon!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      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.
