went to Jacks shack last weekend and it was closed. Was it just closed for the season? Do the bears come out all summer or in the fall? thanks

Jack's Shack had a fire a couple of years back and hasn't been open since. However, I haven't been by in the last couple of months so maybe something has changed since then.

It was owned by two women. They did have a fire, but I also heard some stir about violations of the sorts, and perhaps some underage activities as well.

These could have been rumors though...Don't quote me on this though.

Jacks Shack is owned by a couple ladies and I understand they are trying to reopen. There wasn't any illegal activities going on. The problem was with state or county regulations regarding the kitchen and sanitary sewer as I undertsand. Everything was fine before the fire , but when it came time to rebuild or repair ,the new regulations or standards went into effect. The repairs are going to be quite expensive. The ladies are still working on it and I would guess it won't be too long and they will be open. Let's hope so , it was a great place and they have a lot of money tied up.

      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.

      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.
