I am looking to bring the kids over to Chub Lake Sunday or Monday since school is out. Has anyone had any luck with any species of fish.

Are you able to drive the entire lake with a truck?

Thank you

If you will be going to Chub during the day, bring a couple of tip-ups and small sucker minnows along with some crappie minnows. Find an area where you can angle in some deeper water (15-20 feet), and still set up your tip-ups in 7-12 feet not too far away. The kids will definately catch some perch, and maybe get to chase a couple of flags also. I just did this with my 7 year old last week and we had a blast. Also, if you stay until after 4pm or so the crappies should start hitting. The lake is fine for driving, just watch for where people have been moving their houses. You can also bring some really small jigs and waxies if you want the kids to have more perch action.

SB,

This weekend is the annual Carlton Snowfest activities on chub. On saturday they have a golf on ice tournament, and on sunday there is a fishing contest. Signup is from 10-noon, and the contest is from noon to 3. $5 for adults and $2 for kids. They also have the B&B market BBQ wagon out there so there are great eats to be had!! There is a prize raffle that goes on during the contest also (need to buy seperate tickets for it).

They have predrilled holes or you can drill your own. They used to have a roped off area that you had to stay inside, but last year they just said that you had to be within earshot of the loudspeaker, which let folks spread out a bit.

I'll be out there with my 5 year old somewhere, probably spending more time running between the BBQ wagon and tent than fishing grin.gif

Not too hard to find fish on chub. Theres so many people on that lake on the weekends you will be able to see where everyone else is fishing. Try deeper if you want perch or crappies or go around 6-10 feet if you want northerns.

The fishing contest is always fun. Two years ago my daughter lost a big northern right at the hole with 45mins left in the tourney. This fish would have won her the $500 first prize. When I pulled the line out of the water, I realized that the knot had come untied, which meant that it was my fault that she lost the fish.Being the responsible parent that I am, I explained what had happened to my daughter and she said that since it was my fault, that I could just put $500 in her bank account! This girl has spent too much time around her mother.

SB,

I'll have a green Otter house next to a green toyota tundra, most likely somewhere on the outside edge of the crowd. Plan on getting out there a little after 11. Weather looks decent, a bit of wind, should be a good time!! If you see us stop by and say Hi.

      I was out on Vermilion fishing today again. Big bay still has about the same amount of ice but the ice is a lot softer now! Small patches of 4" to 6" deep slush pockets on it. Pike bay seemed solid when we went out but when we returned almost the entire bay had about 6" of very soft slushy ice on top! That will be my last trip out this winter. Talked to one Native that I saw checking a  net that he had  out under the ice in Pike Bay. He had caught around 15 walleyes and a pike today and 8 or so walleyes yesterday. Tough way to catch fish!

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      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.
