What is the consensus up there on what the front will do to the fishing? I know the weekend is going to warm up. We are coming up and staying with Kelly P tomorrow.

Well it can't get much tougher then it is right now and I stumbled onto something that just might work. Kelly and I moved around a bit after my recent scouting. We have a plan. wink

Forcast looks ok for the weekend. 15 on Sat. and 25 for Sun. I plan on being up both days. Typical January bite so far. We just have to tough it out it will get better.

Jonny P-spill the beans! What is this plan?

The plan as good as it is working will remain a family secret. If I let out the old school secrets every “outfitter” that comes to town would know and what fun would that be? wink

Lets just say a few anglers are catching fish at an increased rate even though Kelly and I got some strange looks.

Wait until about next Thursday to implement said plan
By next Thursday we will most likely have an entire new plan and most likely moved the fleet a few times by then.

The first thing I told KidWalleye was, "You are going to be an experiment". grin Early results last night looked fairly good but we'll see how things pan out and let him report. He does look really stupid sitting there over 1 mile from anyone else.

Blackjack, if this works plan on leaving shore with a full tank of gas and you might have to change time zones. grin

shaky, just be happy that you missed the fishing this last week. It was ugly out there both with the weather and the fishing. frown

Doc's kid got married yesterday. I'm just thankful that I don't have any cobwebs this morning. grin

How did Doc's kid getting married clear up your cobwebs? grin

Well KidWalleye got some walleyes but nothing like I hoped for. Maybe I should have used a Hamster for the experiment. grin I think we are back to portable versus hardhouse fish biting quandry. Last night when scouting Jon was getting into them pretty good in his portable so I slid a hardhouse in about 120 feet away and drilled out 2 holes to try it. I fished twice as long as Jon and caught I walleye compared to his 20 or so. But I was 100% on keeper fish while he only caught 4 that he could keep. crazy

I have to admit Johnny I was a bit suprised to see the fleet moving where it moved on Sat. I would like to offer some thanks though because I had to meander over and see what was over there. Lets just say it all made sense after that! wink Fishing was tough until we set the portable up and had 18 fish in less than 4 hours... Several too big with the largest a fat 23.5".

My wife outfished me 4:1 and it was great....made her very happy! Normally we have our little girls along and can't venture out in a portable but this weekend was the exception. It sure made for a great afternoon! The fish are biting somewhere...just have to find the right spot...problem is there is a lot of lake to search! Great job Johnny!

I NEVER venture out onto the Red without a full tank of gas!!! We'll have a portable along also in case you have a 'hot spot' that you want us to sit on!! smile

Getting psyched, piles are growing, see you Friday!!

On this side of the lake that was the biggest area with no fishermen. No vehicle traffic, no augers drilling holes, no generators running. A nice quite area for the fish to go to when they get spooked by all the noise. With no snow cover to dampen things sounds were traveling a long ways and every sound pushed the fish a little further away from the people.

Blackjack, we have a rough idea of where you're going to be. You guys are very self sufficient and with decent weather coming we can put you "way over there" by yourselves.

      Does anyone have A 5 person sleeper ice house for rent during February 6th through the 10th?

      Police brutality is a concern right now in many areas, and everyone is working to safeguard their rights. But it is this situation itself that needs to be examined. Having knowledge of police brutality was really helpful to me. Try this at . There is a ton of information here https://supremestudy.com/essay-examples/police-brutality/ on it, which you may also examine in further detail huge learn more about. I hope it will be helpful to you

      Finding between 3-7 inches of ice around most of the st cloud area. Was on one of the bigger lakes and one of the shallower ones in our area today. On the larger lake,  lots of ice in the bays, but main lake had roughly 3 inches where I checked.  The Shallow one had right around 7 inches.  Fish bit very well on one, and not so great on the other.

      Polkiss this...   Logging is the only way out of the Smokey the Bear debacle. We've created so much fuel in the understory from fire suppression. Logging, BIGTIME may be the only answer. Top off the past century of fire suppression with now hundreds of thousands of acres of bug kill in our mature forests when as much as a bug farts, millions of acres lie waste to everything from fire, even micro organisms in the soil. Then heavy rain, or snowmelt washes away what's left...... Log Baby Log 👍👍 and flood the mills with wood, not ash.

      many thanks to you all for providing the information.  it is appreciated.
    • Polkiss
      Knowing and comprehending it myself For instance, logging has increased significantly over time. This can't possibly be permitted. I can speak for myself when I say that we now need to consider how to read about this essay [source] because I was able to learn a lot and even used this information to write a course at the university. Therefore, if anyone needs some knowledge about deforestation, it is useful from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Everyone must protect the environment!

      Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the safety tip.  Always good to know where springs in lakes are!  👍
    • monstermoose78
      Ok I did not check ice thicknesses yet but green, blue, baxter, lori, and elk all had anglers on them. I hope to check thicknesses soon.
    • Cookie123
      There is also some springs in the way back of blue lake ( In nashwauk MN) If you go back there you may run into some if you go to the right or the left there is some both directions so I would suggest not going back there or if you do i would check the ice every 25ft or so at least have fun out there
