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.

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️

      Great story and nice fish! I too just put the boat away did a little river fishing but just to cold on the hands even with gloves. Ice season here we come!
    • MinnowBuckets
      It is definitely getting down to the wire. I want to try and get out one more time if possible! I love ice fishing, but the fall bite has been hot.

      Be careful on public land traps tend to disappear. Don’t set the traps in the open and make another path to check your traps. With duck season going on use traps that will not hold dogs. I like setting banks with mink attractor or 220’s set in rat runs.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.
