That's probably because he uses an older 2007 version of LakeMaster which doesn't have the updated name.

Ice and road conditions- 1/010/2012

Looks like we will have a full house of FM'ers

We currently have 14 inches of ice in the bay and out past 2 Mile. We are seeing some cracking and spidering of the ice sheet due to temperature fluctuations and the lack of any snow cover. We are still only allowing 4 wheelers and snowmobiles out but we hope to be open to light vehicle traffic by the weekend. All of our rentals are out and we have started to pull private houses out.

We currently are staked out to Shaw's Reef and also out to 2 Mile. We will complete staking Doe Island Reef tomorrow afternoon.

Ice conditions are changing daily so please check in and get up to date information wherever you are accessing the lake.

I'm thinking about making a trip for sunday-monday. Maybe with these low temps coming we can get small vehicles out there.

I'll be keeping an eye on the reports!

Forewheeler is hooked up. I'll be there early friday morning.

I'm staying with Jordon R. 8h delux and 4h 4bed. Will you charge me parking friday morning? If so, no problem, whats the earliest i can show up at appledorns to pay for parking, and do you charge parking over the weekend if your staying in a house? I was going to call thursday night and ask these questions, but maybe we can take care of it here. Black Bravada, trailer in tow.

Thanks,

Andy

PB, I'll probably be pushing out of there by 10am sunday... i think that is when we have to leave the house. I'll need a nice nap sunday afternoon i'm sure, but if the bite is hot it might change my mind. I'm going up friday to get some good fishing before the group shows up, since we've got a group of 10 guys going (all younger than 30yrs old grin ) - there will be more beer drinking than fishing goin on i think and it will require some recovery time! sleep

Now if you were coming up friday...

Probably be heading back home by 10am or before on Sunday.

Think we are in house 11 if I am not mistaken.

It will be a 40 something(me) and my son in law and his friend, both in their 20's.

Actually going to try to fish most of the weekend, there will be a few beers being tipped back I am sure too.

Hopefully Adam and I will be there by noon. His friend will be up later.

Hopefully the house 13 isn't too close to ours... crazy

O come on rippinlip. We aren't gonna get loud and out of control. Most of us are after the fish rather than the buzz.

No thats cool, I just want to have fun this weekend, but going to try to fish some too.

I was even thinking off bringing up a golf club or 2 and seeing if I could drive a ball a couple of miles....lol

Maybe a putting tournament on the ice....

Catch a fish, a buzz and have some fun.......sounds like a plan to me.

Don't fret I will have a few very cold Northern Beers somewhere around wink

There is know way we are going to let the banana out. With the lack of snow cover that yellow glob will be absolutely blinding. laugh

As things currently stand we should be open to vehicle traffic this weekend.

I'll be in the 22h "premiere" house this weekend with nine others. Not planning on catching ANY fish, so anything more than that is a bonus! Under-promise and over-deliver!

      Trout/Wabana were really nice lakes, the one and only time I got to fish them 2 years ago. Would love to make it back up there some day. Too many places, too little time!
    • Rick
      Thank you for the report.
    • Wanderer
      I’ve never just canoed the river so I guess I can’t really debate that time estimate.  It’s always been a float/fish trip but casting only, not stopping to really work a deeper hole or anything.   I used to live on the river along that stretch.  About midway between Isanti and St. Francis.
    • Kettle
      Cambridge to St Francis is definitely a long float, Isanti to St Francis not fishing just canoeing takes me about 5-6 hours. If your going solo check out the central park in Andover. You can float solo for about 3 hours and you end up within a 5 minute walk of your vehicle since it twists and turns so much in that stretch. I have not caught many walleye that far south but definitely will get a bass or two

      My soft water season ended Saturday. Landed the boat and need to give it some TLC. I fished everyday in October and boated 304 walleye. Primarily fished my 5 favorite fall spots. Strictly used a jig/minnow.  Lots of nice stuff with a fair amount of smaller fish. To be clear I am a catch and release guy. I probably kept 8 fish. This is a picture of a nice one from my last day out..
    • Wanderer
      We got one gadwall yesterday.  Today duck motivation is low.  Clear sky and zero wind right now.  Going back to bed for a couple hours and then off looking for roosters or grouse.  Whatever works.
    • JerkinLips
      Fished Thursday-Saturday this week and caught only 12 walleyes in 2½ days, half as many as I caught two weeks ago.  Fishing was quite slow for me, and the walleyes were biting very light.  At least this week there were some decent meal size fish as only 2 were dinks along with 3 slot fish.  Caught another 26" walleye pictured, and this one weighed 5#-11oz, 1oz more than the one I caught two weeks ago.  Maybe it was the same fish and added another ounce.  Weather was nice today and it brought out a lot of boats as shown in the second photo.  Fishing wasn't good enough to deal with this crowd so I quit early.  Good luck fishing, and enjoy the fall.

      Had one of those days where I swear those ducks had bullet proof vests on!! Finn laid down after a bit and well my dad sucks!!
    • Wanderer
      Floating those sections of the Rum will take you much longer than you’ll originally think it will.  Be aware of that when you plan your trip.  I’m assuming the water is high right now as most rivers in MN are, so it could go a little quicker.   For example, Isanti to St. Francis will be like 10 hours without slowing down much to fish.  Figure about 1 river mile per hour to be a steady pace for a fishing trip.

      🤔 He wanted to teach Toto how to catch fish too?
