The Lakes are open!!

Saw my first whitecaps of the year today! Heading north on I-94 just past Maple Grove exit (Rush Lake or Reed Lake is the name).
After that I went by a couple of my favorites to see if it was true and sure enough there were waves all over the place!
Thank you Lord!
Ole
Time to get going!

That lake you see from I-94 (as you pass or approach the Weaver Lake Road exit) is Rice Lake...it's about 5' deep...crappy (not crappie) fishing.
I drive big rigs and was driving a set of trailers to and from Watertown, SD today and saw that every single lake had opened up with whitecaps also...what a sight indeed!!

I heard a report that Tonka is still partially iced up but should be out very soon. Black Lake is open as well as some smaller bays. The Mpls. lakes in my area are all open. Vern

Drove by Tonka around noon today. Grays Bay has been open for a few days and the main lake is iced, but looking rotten. Ice-free tomorrow? Tuesday?

Bald Eagle and WBL both still covered in ice. Went out hoping they might be open but ended up in the Mississippi instead.

Crystal, Twin, and Ryan lakes in robbinsdale are ice-free. Gatlyn and freemont lakes in zimmerman also are iced out. My friend drove by Medicine today and said it should be iced out by wensday.

Gervais is still 75% ice covered. However, Spoon and Keller are completely open. Took the boat out today for the first run of the year and it appears many other people had the same idea (mostly water ski boats). It was great to be on open water again. Heading to the Rainy on Thursday.

Saw a boat full throttle on Eagle Lake today. Ice is gone. Getting the itch!

I had my boat out Friday and wet a line. Nothing beats the first time you crack the throttle and the boat comes up on plane. It was sweet!

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!
    • roony
      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
    • gimruis
      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
