WLS,

Kelly P. is correct but if you look at his post from the day before by looking at other similar posts that were already started nad Kelly P. gave the info you inquired about already (e.g. "Currious of the ice thickness when the access closed").

By the way Kelly P. do we still need an extension to get through the river? Not looking for a smarta$$ response either blush.gif) Take care!

WLS, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

Don't hesitate to put any questions you have up, they will get answered one way or another... wink.gif

You are correct, pretty much all of the ice around Bemidji is gone, but Lake Bemidji still has a good sheet on it, which is probably the closest sized lake we have in the area.

That said, URL still has a bit to go. It shouldn't be long, be patient! We're all a bit giddy!

I missed what was edited but I did not mean to come off as a smart$$. Many times there is a 10 degree tempature difference from Bemidji to Waskish. Also the lakes around Bemidji are all far smaller then URL so they will have ice out far sooner. URL's ice sheet is big. It cools the entire area down. A breeze off URL right now can be felt 2 to 3 miles away this time of year. Comparing lakes in the Bemidji area to URL is like comparing apples to oranges.

Came back from Morson yesterday around 2:00 PM. The ice on Red was going out fast. it appeared to be about 50% out. Should be clear now. No fishing allowed in the Tamarac untill May 13th.

We had had a fairly strong southeasterly wind for 2 days pushing the ice sheet out about 1 mile from the eastern shore. It did not pile on the north shore so the ice sheet must be fairly solid yet. The ice sheet can still be seen with the naked eye today so it does not appear that it is breaking up out there in todays wind. It is not "about 50% out". Unless todays warm temps change things fast a NW wind will bring the ice sheet back.

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.
