I drive across the Bong Bridge every day and the urges of my fishing addiction are coming back. Winter is losing it's icy grip and the bay is beginning to open up, theres open water to well up toward the old Carnigie dock. Can't really say you could launch a boat yet but it's getting close. Looks like true ice out is about 2 weeks ahead of schedule.

I hear ya man. I was so excited yesterday to see open water while driving across the bridge to work I'm lucky I didn't wreck. cool.gif I took a look at the shore shore this morning. Only ice I saw was in and around the lighthouse. I've got to go pick up the boat from Link this weekend, shes repaired and ready to roll.

If the wind allows I might try to get the duck boat on the shore and see if I can find some coho's this weekend.

Noticed a boat fishing the poop plant today while going across the bridge. Must be fishing for pannies. She looks wide open down there. I'm sure a person could launch under the bridge now and shoot out to the Lake.

Steve, hows loons foot looking? Let me know how you do. Hopefully the mud clears up by then from the Nemdeji and rain. I'm curoius to see how many eyes are still in the Lake or are most of them in the river like the Rainy. Totally different systems. I was hoping to try it this weekend but that got washed away.

Welcome Hone eye 1. Not much going on but shoefishing now but soon trolling on the big lake and smelting will be going full swing. Then the best day of the year. MN. Opener! 2 weeks straight on the St.Louis will be a BLAST!

Maybe you can get out smelting with us some time?

Heading up north Wednesday, hoping to be on the South shore Wednesday or Thursday, depending on the weather. Didn't know the Walleyes hit in April. My fourth year on the big lake, still a rookie and trying. Hope to see you out there 20ft Monark. Hone-eye

HE1 welcome aboard. I've seen your monark with hone-eye on it quite often at Loons Foot last couple of years. I'll make sure i say hi the next time I see you.

B.C. I had the yoke, coupling assembly and gimbal bearing replaced. The motor is an 1986 and the prevoius owner didn't grease everything. I wasn't happy to get the boat back with the marine radio antenna broke in two and the hitch looking like the letter J. I'm guessing they bend it ripping it out of there ice lot. On the bright side they are going to replace both parts for free.

I'm sure everything will work out o.k. with the motor. I bet you were ticked to find out about the antenna and the mount. I would think a 1lb. propane tank with a torch on it would have melted that ice, but that's just me. Glad to hear she will be sea worthy soon. Some of the best fishing out there. BC

Hone Eye1,

Welcome to the other board!

Ran, don't feel bad its all in due time. I am still waiting my engine to arrive so that I can go out and try some new stuff. The wait is killing me.

Just had to see if the launch is open, and Rices Point is launchable! The ice didn't do the dock so well though, it's listing 40 degrees to port so be careful. It'll stil be several weeks before I'll have time to get out, but I'll be ready.

      Well that gets you out of making lunch, but not getting unstuck! 😊

      You got that right!  I don’t fish Vermillion but have always liked reading the posts.  Log in issues or not, I hope he decides to get back in the swing of things here.   Again, not a big V fisherman but I’m gonna check my calendar for the weekend of the kids event and maybe throw my hat in to help if I can.  I can at least get some lines wet if pointed in the right direction.

      @leech~~ did buy me a steak dinner at the Ely steakhouse when I took him lake trout fishing several years ago.  He’s not without his charities. 🙂

      Hey @leech could I put you in charge of bringing the beverages, snacks and food? Maybe even bring a little table to set it all up on like a buffet style 😂
    • leech~~
      Where?  Just so I can help next time? 😁

      You were a big help today I really appricetate it. I’ve fished that same area at least one a week for the last month. Every time from 1-6pm. Haven’t had a terrible trip yet every time I get a lot of nice gills. The first time I tried that bite I got a few nice crappies and a 17” walleye. Last night fished again and kept 6 nice gills and threw back a lot of good ones to and got I a 21” walleye. It’s a sunset bite for sure then after dark if you hang around long enough the crappies bite to. But it’s hard to stay out last 6pm when it’s this cold trying to heat the portable can become hard even with a good heater. Glad to hear you guys had some luck I’ve heard that area is good but I’ve never tried it. Haha another buddy who always fish’s in the cold told me I was crazy for going out. Well look you did well the last two days......😂. Good luck to you tommarow!

      Thanks for the shout out; glad to help!  I was heading back out to jump start my brothers diesel and saw you get stuck.  Needed to get my bro’s truck going first.  Saw you were in the same spot and knew a little help would go a long way in that rutted mess out there.   You had a good catch for the afternoon. 😎  We were in that area Friday night but after the bite was over.  Got some but not that good.  Had a nice evening crappie bite to the east last night.  A few pike this morning before pulling up stakes.     Gonna head north I think tomorrow.  But it sounds like I’m the only one willing to brave the weather.

      Thanks to Wanderer (Tracy) for extracting me from a sticky situation 🤦‍♂️. It was also nice to finally meet you in person!! I think you need to start a weekend towing business lol. I had a buddy of mine and his dad come out and check and make sure I was okay after you left. Fishing was pretty good I got 8 gills all around 8” and 1 crappie 9”. Dad came out and got 5 gills. We stayed till 6:15pm and I was able to make it off the lake no problem.
