I have no report because there is really nothing to report on. The bigger lakes harbor no fishable ice, the medium sized lakes have ice that can barely support a deer, and I'd be a little leary about the ponds. Things don't look like they're going to improve by this weekend. Sorry to be a negative Nelly, but it's hard to remain upbeat. I don't ever remember not setting foot on Rush or Pokegama or Cross or Knife or the Chisago Chain or whatever by Christmas.

I did get to fish on ice this weekend, however. I had to drive to Detroit Lakes to do it.

Anyone else have any East Central Lakes reports? BradB or Cory?

Sure I have a report!


Yesterday there were 4 fisherman out on the ice.... Unfortunately they were just Eagles!!
Neat to see, but kind of depressing for the middle of December! My neighbor just called to inform me that he is hooking up the boat and heading to Mille Lacs....(The scoundrel knows I have to work today!) So I will have a report for you on that tomorrow! Hopefuly we will have ice for our event on the 19th on Rush! Think Ice!

Still no ice......):

But, the forecast is sounding better and better. I will keep you posted when Rush is able to be walked out on!
An interesting note, I saw around 300-400 bluebills rafted on the lake this morning! Unfortunately they are about a month too late!
Think Ice!

I fished a shallow little pond last saturday and found 3-4 inches of ice. Some fellows dragged a spear house out there which, to my mind, was a risky gambit. I went out with my PFD, spikes, and canoe close by.

The fishing was lousy (just tiny, tiny bluegills) so I spent Sunday dragging a Christmas tree out of a swamp instead of fishing.

With that wind and warm it can't be good. It's cold today so maybe we'll be in better shape come Saturday.

Cory,

That's good news. However, you're not really thinking about walking on that ice by this weekend, are you? Dude, you've been couped up too long if you think there will be 3"+ by Saturday or Sunday. Do us favor and wait until the middle of next week. We need your reports and your organizational skills for the West Rush event.

Just remember, you're dead a long time. Be careful.

Bornofice,

I had to laugh! You took the words right out of my wife's mouth! Maybe not walking, but, I might slide the canoe out!! We shall see how adventurous I feel!

      CigarGuy, I couldn't help but notice that the boat you're using appears to have the junk Merc fuel line that has cost boat owners a boat load of money by disintegrating the rubber liner inside and sending it downstream into your filters and carbs. The Merc is the right vintage and the line is the right (wrong) color. If you can find a speck of red or orange printing on it or if it feels soft when you squeeze it, you should cut it into pieces and toss it in the trash. If you are original owner and know 100% that non oxy 91 octane is the only type of gas ever used, maybe it will be fine. I wouldn't risk it though. Check my 'mercury fuel hose causes issues' thread on equipment and expert information forum for pics from this spring.

      Got 4 more slot fish tonight from 8 till 9:30. All between 21" and 26-1/4". had a nice one on within a minute of getting out there, but I was waiting for a boat to pass before I grabbed the net and lost it.  Sorry if it sounds like I'm bragging, I'm not, this uncharted territory for me up here 😀. Like I've said before, this lake has humbled me. This is the best wknd fishing in the 6 years we've been up here... gotta enjoy it while it lasts. Heading back to the rat race tomorrow.

      Why do I fish??!!?? It's simple. Because I NEED TO FISH!!  I mean, what else is there?? Fishing is my church. Fishing is my therapy. Fishing is my home. Fishing is my vacation. Fishing is my best friend. FISHING IS MY LIFE!! C & R IS MY FUTURE! Please let me be fishing in my final moments, or let me fish forever.

      Had a great couple of days in the middle of the lake. Plenty of 15-18”fish and too many little ones to count. Leeches mostly but fish also were active on smaller rainbows later in the day.

      Had some luck fishing walleyes in 10-20 ft in current using jigs tipped with chubs a week ago. Water was pretty cold still...upper 50s on the main lake.

      Growing up in South Dakota I learned to enjoy the fishing I got to do in the Watertown area with great grandpa and the Missouri River and Black Hills fishing with Grandpa. It's a little different than what I see here in Minnesota but the basics are the same. Seems to be more emphasis on fish size than fishery quality or maybe I was just raised different.  Either way it was always about the beauty of nature and learning a valuable skill from 2 knowledgeable individuals. Now I just try to pass those skills on to the next generation and hope they learn how to protect our resources as well as I was taught.

      same here!!! doesn't hurt to have lived close to the horseshoe chain and having a cabin in Itasca county!!!!!!   nuttin better then a meal of fish straight from the lake to the fish cleaning shack to the plate either!!!!!!

      Similar to eyeguy, I fished when I was young with my parents. At some points it was about trying to catch big fish for me, now days it's for relaxing and teaching kids to fish.
