After reading the post on sunfish catchin places, I have to respond. First of all, when we write our little thoughts in this forum, It's VERY hard to tell what the actual demeanor or temperment the writer is really feeling. I've read what sounds like a real nasty response, but then thought it could easily be tongue in cheek. I,ve always felt that the majority of fisherman are truly great people, easy to talk to and hang with. I know we all like our honeyholes, but who can't wait to tell the "world" if they had a great day on the lake. How many times have we been told where the fish are jumping in the boat, only to go there and not get as much as a bite! I've caught my limit of walleyes in short order many times, while watching boats RIGHT NEXT to me strikeout! Ah, presentation, bait selection, color, sharp hooks, boat control, mind control(no drinking),etc all come in to play. I think when we sit in front of these computers, you may come across as some selfish fisherman sometimes, but I would be willing to bet if everyone from this forum would meet in an auditorium someday, new friendships and great stories would be told and shared.What's really important?

      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.
