There is 6 or 7 weeks of good Ice and or shore (looper) fishing before one even needs to think about preping the boat so lets not try to melt the ice too soon grin.gif

Every time it seems to be warming up, I plan on taking the cover off and finishing those fall projects on the boat. Then it snows again then gets cold again then warms up then snows again then gets cold...ENOUGH ALLREADY!!!! C'MON SPRING!! I love my boat.

I know I should still be happy about ice fishing, but all I can think about is getting my boat out on the open water! I heard it's going to be in the 80's next week, maybe that will help.

(you can't blame me for dreaming)

Sorry to get your hopes up. It's probably not going to be in the 80's here for a long time. That's why I said "(you can't blame me for dreaming)".

Well, I saw something today that got me chomping at the bit even more than I was already. On my way home from work I was going across the 494 Wakota bridge. I took a peek over the edge to see the boat launch, and to my surprise I saw someone... (someone who probably frequents this website I might guess.)

\:D

Anywho, there was a guy with a boat (still on the trailer) hacking away at the ice on the launch ramp with an ice chopper!

\:D

It's good to see others who will go to such desparate measures just to get at some open water.

K guys/gals I dont know about posting links here, but I found a great little one on a site called:

www. timeleft. info

^ No spaces of course.

That site has a great little timer you can download for free. Small and click to drag around your desktop. Pretty easy to figure out as well.

That timer is great! I downloaded it on my PC at work. I had been crossing days off on a small calendar for the last month or so. This is much more convenient.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!
    • Wakemup
      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      I have to agree, always enjoy your videos Curt. Fun to see what is happening even from the southern part of the state...Keep em coming...

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.
    • Raven77
      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!
    • Raven77
      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
