I took my daughter to Waconia last year, and she had an absolute blast catching stunted pannies out of a rental house. However, the drive from Coon Rapids to Waconia it just too long for me. Are there any other places up in the Chisago/Rush area where I can rent a house for a day? She's still too young (in my opinion) to go out in the portable yet (she's only 5), but has been begging me to take her out again.

Thanks in advance for your advice!

You could also talk to Rich at Mike's Bait on hwy 8. He was renting out his nice wheel house last winter...he puts it out and has it on fish...ready to go. Last year it was on Green lake near Chisago city.

Thanks a ton guys - I appreciate all the help.

Pharcta2 - I have a 6x10 permanent house out on Chisago. I don't mind letting you use it for a day sometime. Post your email address if you are interested. I also have small kids so I try and keep it in an area where there is action.

I would have no problem, but all permanent houses must be off by the end of the month. Mine is going off today or tomorrow. Sorry.

Pharcta, being 5, your lil girl is probably plenty old to head out in the porty, but I guess that depends on what you have for a portable and how quickly she loses her attention span. Even better, with the warmer weather we are having, bring her out on the open ice without having a shack before the ice starts to fade away. We had a ton of kids out for the first annual Baby FMers Get Together last Saturday and not one person flipped the lid on a portable the whole time out there. Every single kid caught fish too. If you want directions to a spot to put her on some panfish, let me know.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
