I fished the Red here in town last night. I was in lumber near a deeper hole a ways below a dam. Marked plenty of fish and caught some goldeye and one 4 lb. walleye.
The ice was butter-soft so be extremely careful if you're going to go out and give it a shot. I can't believe how crappy the ice got after two warm days. A few days of normal Feb. weather would firm it up good, but it was approaching dangerous.

Wiskers, any reports from your neck of the woods? How's the ice?

I fished below a dam in town and managed to scrape up three slough sharks. All were 2-3 lbs and were caught on cranks.

The ice is getting pretty soft here also.. wont be long... got fingers crossed...

With this rain that will only make it even more dangerous.. No fish is worth a life, wait for open water and take a boat from her on out fellas... Im thinking of taking a long cord and running a nipco out to the river to help it open up... LOL LOL ...

We fished the north dam on Sat. Got one good hit on jig and plastic by the dam no other bites. Worked cranks along the shore and vertical jigged the rocks.
We did not fish real hard it was just nice to fish again!
Be REAL careful walking along the shore on the MN side the snow makes it hard to see the rocks and it would be real easy to mash up a leg or hurt a knee there.
Saw some other guys fishing cranks by the dam also did not see them catch anything but they were still fishing when we left.
Probaby will wait until the rocks are clear and we can see where we are walking should not be to long its supposed to warm up again next weekend so hopefully this melt will continue.
Quick question is it still possible to fish the Wild Rice dam? I asked Ed last year because it was posted and he said that you could walk down there. Since then somebody put up new no trespass signs just wondering if the owner of the land still lets people go there I know a lot of people fish there.
Again thanks for the posts I'm guessing we will get better reports as it continues to warm up.

Yup, the fishing will pick up as it warms and thaws.
As for the Wild Rice, the owners usually give permission. However, I wouldn't consider going down there without permission. The owners are very nice and generous, but have been treated poorly by a number of people who have abuse the opportunity to fish down there- parties, littering, driving down right past the no trespassing signs. Definitely get permission before you go down there.

      How about a digital photo frame in the shack.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.
