At some point this pattern has to change.  I am still hoping for the last weekend of April to put the dock in but it's looking more like the weekend before opener.  In 25 years we've never had to wait till the weekend before.

Some of the lakes are just starting to be ice free from the shore, I haven't heard of any lakes that are completely open.  But my guess is for sure by next weekend most should be ice free.

Looking at the DNR website they show 8 lakes in MN that are open.  Not sure how often they update it.

Yesterday when I looked at that website there were only 3. This morning, only 3. So maybe once a day.

I don't know of any in Kandiyohi county that are totally ice free yet.  Willmar lake should be ice out today or tomorrow.

A lot of lakes opened up yesterday with the wind.  I know Big Kandi is open and Wakanda, Point had ice yet Saturday morning but was looking really close, Eagle had open water out about 50-60 yards from shore.

Was still a lot of ice a little over a week ago.   Was still locked tight to shore yet but getting chunky when you drilled it.  Heard of some dead walleyes being found.  But didnt seem wide spread like other lakes in the area.

Be curious the outcome and severity of the winter kills in that area myself.  Fortunately a lot of the creeks small rivers should be flowing great right now supplying fresh oxygen. Once open water gets here the true tails of the rumors will definitely show there selves.

We were up last weekend to put the dock in.  Water is very high and bogs are being blown around.  Didn't see any signs of winter kill.  Heading back up this weekend.

The water temps were 49 degrees yesterday with about 18 inches water  clarity.  Openers are always a crap shoot so you never know.

I had 54 degrees in the afternoon.  Water's really high.  Weather foercast looks decent but it will change on Friday night to wind at 35 mph out os the east and a high of 41 degrees...cloudy with sleet and rain.  too many cormorants on the lake.

Tough opener for our group! The ones that were caught were good size, but few and far between.

Join the club, Them who fished from boats on many lakes done less than average.  Some of the guys fishing along fast water or shallows wader fishing done well.  This warmer weather will really help. the shiners should be coming in the shallows soon, making it even better.

Heading out that way tonight,  north of kandi a bit. I'm guessing the big east winds wont help much tonight. The weather pattern looks favourable for the weekend though..

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
