Rice Ice

Recommended Posts

THE_Cable_Guy

This is probably a really dumb topic, but i havent gotten much ice time around here this season. Been getting quite a bit of SW MN ice time and catching lots o' perch. But anywho, was wondering how much ice we are looking at on Rice, especially near the middle at the ridgeline. Looking to put a permanent out there (if i beat the crowds that is). Thanks for the info.

Is anyone driving on Rice with trucks yet? I unually use the South access and head to the East. The Crow river flowage makes me think foot or wheeler traffic only.

Was on rice today,there were several trucks out there but I found only 10 inches where I drilled and I drilled at least 50 holes in several areas. When a truck came on the lake I could hear it from a long ways out, ice cracking everywhere and water coming out of the holes. Fishing was slow.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
