Most lakes around central MN have 7”-8” of good clear ice. Problem is this wind blew all the snow in drifts so most lakes are bare. So it may be tricky for sled travel. I drove my 800lb ATV out yesterday with no issues.

After what happened out there last weekend, you'd have to be really stupid to even consider going out there for a long time.

Going out in a strong east or northeast wind is not a smart idea when the shipping channel is still open.  The water level fluctuates quite a bit from the seiche, even when there isn’t big winds.  Current comes in the entries raising water levels.   That level change creates cracks in ice and cracks with a strong wind going towards open water is a bad mix.  It was safe to be on the ice the preceding days before that happened but not that day.  

 

The harbor ia dangerous stuff folks.  Everyone stay away.

Not as many on harbor this morning; couple groups fishing without houses.  Fish was alright for us; talked to a couple people who didn't catch anything.

      Seeing Borch has the cool cats going on march 2 I will go with the following weekend! If Saturday or Sunday works better for please say something. This will be a good time to pick the brains of some great fishermen.

      Don't forget to remember the rod, line, lure and rest of equipment you used and that you were eating JohnsonVille brats when you caught it. You know, more sponsors! 😅

      Fishing has been decent for late season. Caught just 3 walleyes under 12” on Friday after a late 10am start due to getting the Ranger stuck 1/4 mile from the house.  Yesterday I caught 9 walleyes including the 25” pictured; all the rest were under 12” except for one 16”. Have caught 5 today and all were under 12” except for one 15”.  Two fish caught on suckers and all the rest on chubs. Fuel and Food didn’t have rainbows or shiners. Have to pull my house off today. Good luck.

      SIF I took the snowmobile from Stuntz Bay all the way to Mud Creek last night to clear snow of the roof of my sisters cabin. The plowed road was fine until just after leaving Stuntz Bay. Then it had tons of water on it. Made the mistake of driving through one and it was at least 6” deep. Covered the windshield, hood, and helmet with ice. The plowed road ended close to Ely island. The rest of my ride was okay other than heavy snow and one slush spot by shore. On the way back I took the snowmobile trail on the lake and that was fine except where it crossed the plowed road and was covered with water. Very tough traveling out there except be sled.

      Hey guys!   Thanks, I really appreciate it.   The response to this fish has been completely overwhelming to me.  I never expected it to get so much attention.   USA Today, FoxNews, Reuters, BBC,  New York Post,  ABC, just name a few.   Then to see it on the top fold of the front page of the Strib was crazy,  not many outdoor stories make that section.      Although I said I think i'm done Ice fishing in the video, I know there are bigger ones out there and guess who was out on the ice until midnight  again last night.  :)   I just love being out there and spending time fishing with friends.  The fish are always a bonus and landing that fish was a team effort.  Most of those fishing friends were made right here on FM.  This site will always hold a special place inside me.  So many great memories.     So awesome to see this Sturgeon fishery rebound and become a resource for everyone in MN to enjoy,  and to be completely honest, as fun as it is to now hold the record,  I hope it keeps getting broken again and again.  That means we are doing something right.

      Happy Sunday Everyone.  Thinking of checking the cabin today and curious if anyone knows the condition of the roads coming out of Stuntz Bay?

      Verified New Minnesota State Record Lake Sturgeon caught ice fishing on the St. Croix River.   Congrats to our very own Darren Troseth the new record holder and our friend John Kimble who was invaluable throughout the process of landing this monster.   78" long, beating the previous record by 5 inches, and estimated at 120 lbs.
