What better time to start this than during -30 temps!!!  Someone's gotta be that guy, so it might as well be me!

 

Anyone else got the itch?

Well, it opens up fast sometimes, but things aren't looking too promising for an early start to fishing this year.....nothing in the forecast to get anyone too excited.

According to LOW tourism ice on the river is thinner than usual, thats a plus!

 

Any thoughts on the new regs for this year?

I'm curious to see how it impacts boat numbers.  I wouldn't think it would have any effect hardly but who knows, people are funny sometimes.....

Just looked the new regs up. Not an issue for me. I never intend to keep any. Usually too tired in the evenings after 12 hrs in the boat to think about cleaning fish.

Believe that its catch and release during April and the limits changed when regular season  gets underway.  I don't mind as I'm not in it to see how many I can  catch  and bring home just a real blast to be able to catch really nice fish and say that I did  it

Might be the first year I dont make it up since 2011. Not because of the regulation changes but last year the wait at the boat launch was horrible. Have to say it was very comical watching people try to load and launch boats though.

It could be a long wait this year. There hasn’t been any melt yet and there is a lot of snow out there. From what I have been hearing the river is locked up tight and there’s plenty of ice.

Looked like 46 degrees yesterday in I-Falls.  That should have helped some.

      Yah the Dam in cold spring is quite the site I stopped there and looked at it . Its gushing !!
    • smurfy
      I just drove by the chain and can second that!!!!!!! in cold spring there was a sheriffs deputy and a cold spring officer on the old railroad bridge. the deputy looked like he had some type of gadget in his hand. water was really pouring over that dam.  with the news that Antons got evacuated last nite with a full house i'm sure everyones on full flood alert!!!
    • IceHawk
      I would say its over around my area. We tried to get on numerous lakes yesterday with hip boots and broke through all the edges. still ice out there once you reach it but  Things are going fast. Water is riseing fast. the hwy 22 access is completely flooded and gaining elevation by the minute.  Might make a few Northwest runs yet but locally I wont be takeing the risk anymore been a weird year but honestly i'm ready for the long rods to come out!

      Great info and read

      On the way back from the store for the paper today I noticed some blue bags on the trees in  your area on the north side of the blacktop, that you guys? 
    • BIGFISH.JZ
      I forgot the word "release". Release the bigger fish!!
    • smurfy
      well i'm gonna be here a lot next week begging for snow and ice information!!!!! so get your homework done!!!!!😁

      Sounds like several lakes are experiencing winter kills in the Wilmar area this year.  The extent of the kill isn't clear yet but Big Kandi has had some walleye mortality, Lillian appears to have had a significant die off with dead jumbo perch in the shallows, Kasota and Wakanda have a bunch of dead eyes showing up in creeks.  I'd be surprised if it isn't more wide spread than these lakes.

      We were gathering sap yesterday and it was almost knee deep. Areas getting more sun have a foot. Getting through the ditch was hell.
