Thinking of putting the boat in today in Pike bay. Just wondering if I have to worry about any ice or if it is all open? Thanks guys.

Got the boat out today in Pike bay. Ran great! Cruised around slow until I was pretty sure there wasnt any ice floating around and didnt see anything around Hoodoo at least. I didnt head up by the narrows though. Looked like Daisy bay was really close to opening up too. Wont be long now until everything is open I think especially with some rain in the forcast starting tomorrow night. Cant wait! Thanks for the info as always guys. See ya on the water!

My in-laws have a place in between isle of pines and mocc point and the ice was out about 30 feet and very black. It almost looked like some open water around mocc point. I would say you have a good chance of getting into portage bay by the weekend if these temps hold. cool.gif

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
