first time at Dickies

Recommended Posts

Red

7 of my buddies and I head to Mille Lacs every winter for a couple long weekends away from the women and ice fishing (boozing). This year we decided to try out Dickies for house rentals. Has anyone had any luck there recently? Last year we only caught some pout at Scenic Bay. We wanna get some eye's and perch this year. Any advice would be appreciated. Or stop by the ice house (I have no idea which one) for cocktail hour which starts when we arrive and ends when we leave.

Fished all weekend off of road B out of Dickies. Only got two 6" 'eyes and one 7" perch. Marking little perch constantly. Fished Sloppy Joes Saturday evening...nothing in 28'. Gonna have to move the shack out deeper I think. I saw a few slot eyes come off of Hennipen though.

My bros and some friends will be at Dickies this weekend. We've been there a couple of times before and always had a great time. We've tried other resorts, but Dickies is the best. Never caught much fish, but we party like rock stars!! We'll be in shack #35. Stop by and have a beer with us. Hope some of you guys. ROCK ON!!

Alright some fellow members heading up on the 31st.(HURRAY MY BIRTHDAY!!!)Best present ever would be a 32in. wally-gator. But anyways me and 11 other, innocent until proven guilty in a court of law,individuals will be out there to, sound like we will be neighbors. Im sorry, but take no responsibility. I'm in for some serious fishin though, I'm bringing my portable and gear so stop by, have a gallon or two of beer and we can venture out. I have a grey F1-50 with a toolbox on it.

      Just got back from LOTW fishing for us was slow. But if you put the time in and watch your electronics it can still be good. We're fishing in 32ft lot of small fish just need to keep the hook away from them several good fish still coming thru. A few slot fish up to 26 1/2 inches walleyes 15 to 17 saugers 14 to 16 lot of water under the snow in spots.

      checked again tonight from hwy 23. north of the bridge to the dam is open with a bit of ice on the edges. south of the bridge still has ice but is looking pretty iffy.

      Thanks for the report.  I didn’t hear any news from my buddy’s last trip up there so I assumed it was bad.  I texted and asked; yup it was bad.  He’s finally burned out for the ice season after the back to back bad trips and putting his gear away.     One of his buddies did an 8 man/5 day trip for lakers in another part of Ontario.  8 fish total.   I agree, it can get better before the end though if a couple things work out weather wise.

      I say that if this gets passed, those lakes are on their own, no stocking, nothing supported by the dnr, if they want their lake all to themselves, they can support it.

      Mar 19, 2019 Wright County AIS public meeting recap:   The Wright County passed the AIS ordinance with a 3 to 2 vote. Now it is entirely up to the DNR commissioner to approve it. The Wright County commissioners said that if the DNR does not approve it by April 15th, the whole proposal is dead for good.   Here are some more details from the meeting. There were about 50 people attending, 99% lake shore owners. They all applauded the proposed ordinance (except for the self-certification part). One after another they spoke about how much trouble their lake is in and how much it has cost them to keep AIS at bay. They did a great job of presenting “the sky is falling” to the county commissioners (I always find it interesting that there is no mention of restrictions on lake shore owners using lawn fertilizer that turns the lakes into a green slimy mess. Seems to me that would be a no brainer if you really cared about the lake). Most made a point that they are not trying to privatize their lake and are offended when they hear that. On the other hand, not once did anyone mention that we need to come up with a better way that does not restrict access. Only one lone fisherman addressed the council and said that he bypassed the three test lakes last year and will bypass the additional lakes if this passes, too much hassle. Hmm, funny how that works. Imagine if this catches on and all the lakes are restricted, sell the boat I guess. There was also mention of a need for an exit inspection process. Not sure what that means, but didn’t sound like it would be in lieu of the proposed inspections and you may end up having to get inspected before and after you go to the lake.   Also of interest, the commissioners said they have received many inquiries from lake associations around the state and there were several other lake association representatives at the meeting to observe and see how they could implement this same strategy. So Wright County will be the test case for every county in the state to run with this. What a disastrous precedent. Not to mention the regulations and tags would be different for every county, making it cumbersome and impractical. The self-certification will have a cost of $10 to $40, so multiply that by how many counties you fish.   What you can do if you want to stop this from happening: The entire fate of this proposal now rest on the DNR. The Wright County commissioners will meet with the DNR commissioner on Mar 21. If the DNR does not approve the plan by April 15, it will be dead. Send your concerns to these DNR contacts right away so that they receive it before they meet with the Wright County people.   [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]     PS,  you can read the emails send to Wright County on this link. Notice how organized the lake associations are with their form letter that you just sign and send. In particular, notice the one from the Clearwater association #34 on the page (see where this is heading?). http://www.co.wright.mn.us/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/6489?fileID=13556

      I just checked the Two Harbors webcam, and it’s still frozen. However, the ice cutter was in the background carving out the shipping lanes. Personally, I think the ice season on the big pond is over!
