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.

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
