went up to crookston on the 26th fished the dam from 7 to 9 pm got alote of 2 to 4 pound cats 3 cats being 10 pounds plus all in all a good stop on our vacation.

i talked to two guys that were fishing from iowa ( they were using 2 lines) told them in MN you cant use 2 lines unless your ice fishing. they realed up 2 lines and thanked me for letting them know.

this is the part i dont like (there were at least 10 to 15 people there) and no one told them they cant use two lines.

maybe up there no one cares i dont know. i would think the locales would like to keep the great fishing they have. i was only there 2 hours and i caught 20 plus fish with no problem. ( thats a good fishery)

i will be making the trip again. maybe next time ill post befor i leave and meet up with some fellow FMers

Troutman.. Man I wish you would have called, I would have tried to make it down there to see ya..

Good fishing down there now..

As for the locals not telling them about the lines.. ??? that does not suprise me.. No one wants to get involved... sigh sigh..Got to give you an atta boy for that.. You have to watch some of them out of towners.. they like to keep the big pigs also and many times too many of them get taken home with them.. I have caught some with 3-4 cats over 10# in coolers ready to get cleaned.. NOT a good idea if I cath them..

      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.
