Have a great weekend!
I know it was not Vermilion but I was on Burntside Sunday-Wednesday and found the travel conditions great with the snowmobile. Had 30" of ice, but the top 10-12" was white and there was a 1" water layer under 2" of top white ice. The top was softening up when we left Wednesday afternoon. The bottom 2' of ice was nice and clear, so it will be solid for a while. If they get cold weather up there for a few days, the lakes could be very good traveling for most vehicles since the deep snow has flattened and most of the water on top has drained or evaporated. If it gets cold, I may be back up on Burntside for the end of March.
Can someone please post pics and or videos of the Minnesota State Record Lake Sturgeon caught by @DTro. The story about the aftermath would be cool too.
How is the St. Croix River looking? Anyone out fishing it?
Fishing reports please?
Spring is no slouch for activities though!
Here’s a list of (fun) possibilities for even this weekend:
Shooting - rifle range
Still enough ice to fish through
Some open water to cast to
Still ‘Nuff night light yet for yotes
Scout for turkeys
Snow goose season is open too
It’s too bad though I have to include some other stuff for the weekend:
Helping move someone
Annual files cleaning
Some catching up at work
Snow plow repair/maintenance
At least I can count on getting stuff from BOTH sides accomplished!
I ran into a couple guys at the gas station when getting minnows today and we started chatting about this.For access to these lakes without an inspection they said this is what you want to do-Have someone who isnt going fishing come with you and launch your boat they drive away with truck and trailer and come pick you up later.Not a great option for all but if you live nearby the restricted lakes they said this works.I like their style
March 21 - saw my first goldeneyes of the spring migration tonight. They were cruising south so I imagine they were scouting further north but didn’t find the water they were looking for.
There are spots open on the river but not much around Little Falls yet. Judging by the looks of the ice though I’ll be seeing open water by Sunday.
