Hey fellas, just wondering if trucks are being let out yet on long point? I'm headed up tomorrow night (Thursday) with the 8x8 portable. Any word on the bite? Depth? If not does anyone have any other spots that have been hitting? crazy.gif Any help would appreciated. Thanks

King Fisher,

I was up at Long Point on Saturday. They were letting vehicles out. Ice was about 15-16 inches where we were fishing. Probably more on the road and probably a bit more after the cold today. Fishing was slow for us. We were in 26'. Got 5 keepers and a few smaller ones. No bites between 12:30pm and 4:30. Morning bite was best. Went to Zipple bay on Sunday and did better. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Thanks for the report. Hopefully their biting by the time we get up there. I might try fishin in the 20-22 foot range. I like fishing shallower early in the year. I seem to have better luck that way. Either way we'll be heading to Zippel too if their not cooperating. Happy fishing.

      The ice was very crystallized last night but still 20+ inches.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.
