I cant take it anymore mad.gif I need to get my boat in the lake!! Work is driving me crazy and I keep seeing these guys on T.V. catching big largies and smallies. I know I could outfish these shmucks if only my favorite fishin' hole wasnt FROZEN SOLID.
I think I just have a bad case of cabin fever. grin.gif
Not much activity on this forum as of late.

So...
any educated guesses on when the Ice will go?

I am hoping for April 17th. shocked.gif

Personally, I like the ice and will hate to see it go but I can't golf with snow on the ground. It will be nice to get the boat out though and chase after those fish that way. I do have to say there are some really good bass lakes around the area although I don't target them much. Last year I got a bunch of dandy bass while fishing northern. All C & R, I don't eat bass in summer but they are a blast to catch. I didn't realize bass liked heavy sucker minnows but I think I caught more bass than northerns last year on them. Now that I think about it I guess I am getting cabin feaver also, I better go check the boat out, after I get back from some ice fishing!!!
Almost forgot, I think your pretty close on the ice out!!!

      Down to 38 in Wake Em Up Narrows this afternoon...when we pulled the plug early in favor of sanity.  Did manage a 27.75”er this morning among a couple of others for our Herculean efforts. ha

      I caught a skinny 33 inch walleye out of red lake back during the crappie boom. I will get the photo as it hit a big airplane jig. I want to get a pike jigging.

      City of Virginia is mandating conversions from steam to gas so all the contractors in town are swamped. Couple more local options Martys heating Malmstrom

      That makes sense.......I think eventually upper red could turn out some 10lb fish. I pretty much figured this was a joke.

      Kelly come on....I live by the Iowa Great Lakes.......and can say the exact same thing you posted. While people may not directly make money from them....money is being spent and brought into the county which was not generated in the county helping the county and people in the county.    I get the "trash issue " no matter what is done people will litter. It will never stop. It needs to be managed, the situation isn't unquie to Upper Red, it's just not managed at upper red like it should be.

      What you are forgetting about is that a very, very small percentage of the people living in Beltrami County make any money from the fishermen on URL. Many of the people making money off the fishermen on URL do not even live in Beltrami County. But ALL residents of Beltrami County have to pay to clean up the garbage left by the fishermen. If a person owns property on the shore of URL how do you suppose they feel about having to continually be picking garbage up off from the beach? If a person lives 10 miles from URL how do you suppose they feel about having to pick up the garbage from the highway ditch in front of their home?

      I never go to the south shore so I'm definitely not an expert but I think this is some type of "contest" where you draw a piece of paper out of a bowl or something like that and the "weight" of your "fish" is written on the paper. A few years back there were Illegal northerns listed in one of JR's "contests" and the CO's looked into it and found that it was just some type drawing.

      The problem is they still need some ballast water on the Great lakes "When the winds of November come early..........."  😉
