I'm heading out to the Zumbro today at 2 and I heard that Grampa Ed's is now off limits. Can anyone confirm this for me so I won't have to spend the gas on the way out to get turned away. Thanks

We went down their ramp yesterday. There was a big crew out there ice racing. And they were using it also. But all the grassy area at the top of the ramp is rutted and tore up. It's frozen now, but when it gets warm again it's gonna be tough. There was people using four wheelers pulling portables from the public acsess down by the campground.

The private ramp at Neitz's is off limits now too. Never used to be a problem. But they probably never had the traffic in the years past either.

Nope. Gotta work during the week days so weekends are fish-full.

We do go after work on somedays though. But, it's gotta get a bit warmer for those activities.

I've noticed you been posting about Fisherman's Inn. Have you been down to the area downstream from the handicap acsess. More in front of the resturant area? The ice is usually better there.

I have not tried ice fishing in front of the restaurant. Have you ice fished it before and how did it go for ya if you did. I fish that area more during the summer when I am not in the mood to go in the boat.

We did real well out there during the mid-end of Feb. And all of March. Crappie Tom, Smallieobsession, and I were there just about every weekend. And a few nights after work. It starts to stay light out a bit longer.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
