Season Winding Down.....

Recommended Posts

AlwaysFishing23

Decided yesterday afternoon we had to much fun the day before so we had to get out again. Had about 1.5 hours to fish and kept 17 nice gills for a good meal for my brother and grandma to have. Was more of a tough bite. Plastics and tubby jigs again and marked a lot of fish but the wind was brutal. Being able to see the bite was almost impossible. I know for a fact I missed a lot of bites. But none the less we had a good time again. Shorelines started to melt from shore a couple feet but the main ice sheet was still fine. This was the last trip of the 18-19 season for me. Overall a REALLY good season iced a lot of nice walleyes, crappies and a ton of super nice bluegills. Last night I got try flip over dried and vacuumed out, brought the flipover to the basement, got the otter sleds put in the garage, and got the auger summarized. A couple more things to do and I’ll be pretty much ready for open water. Debated trying to get one last trip but I feel pretty confident with my season at this point. Also the storm heading our way with the predicted snow fall will make things dangerous with all the open holes.

You got some nice crappies there kind of suprised you still have that much ice where I'm from the white bear lake area most lakes are done and there is open water on some areas this is one of my favorite times of the year when you can fish hard water and soft water in the same day!!

Down here in north metro season over. Open water 100 yards off shore on Coon Lake Anoka, expect it fully open by mid next week with today's rain and warmer temps. Time to get the boat out of winter storage.

Yes finally today I put the winter gear away.😢 Wont let my fishing buds you know who you are😉 temp me to take it out again. Was a great season cant complain cught a lot of fish on a lot of different lakes.  Only complaint was not getting up to panfish paradise Otter Tail County as much as normal. Snow depths made it interesting as some of us found out 😲 Thanks to all the guys I shared the ice with this year the memories will last a lifetime!

For sure!  Mine isn't put away yet but it will be.  That rain did it's damage and it's time to be thinking about turkeys and getting the boat out.  I certainly enjoyed spending time on the ice with old and new friends alike.   Great memories.

      I bought the Phonetone for $180. I am on the north side of Pine.  I barely got 1 bar in the cabin and after I temporarily set it up on the deck I went to a full 4 bars with Verizon. Good so far.

      Hey Charlie I am from the Northen Metro fishing around here for me is about two thing finding spots that your normal weekend warrior would not think to fish at or finding those so called ¨community holes¨ that are very pressured and using diffrent techniques and showing the fish diffrent stuff than they are used to seeing here are some of my favorite spots around here Centerville lake is doing good right now for bass and pike Bald Eagle is my main home lake the docks along the north side are great spots for summer froging flipping or any other technique you want to use a slip boober with a worm will catch plenty to along with some big pumpkinseed that are in there there are 3-4 places you can lanuch a kayak from you will see them if you drive down the road on the west side of the lake the reeds and grass on the north end are great to but a bit tricky to launch a kayak from if you want less pressured fishing try comfort lake by lindstom sqaure lake and big marine are great to finally a great spot for some kayak fishing is the St Croix if you can get someone to drop you off you can float down the river the whole day and get someone to pick you back up I am not a very avid kayak fisherman but you can message pepole like JB Master Angler who fishes the St Croix a good amount I am pretty sure Rick G and Eyeguy 54 are both Avid Kayak fisherman I am sure they would recommed some good spots for you as well  Good Luck -Austin

      The other boats I've owned had the bow roller positioned so the roller hits the keel when the boat is snubbed up, not the bow eye.
