How are those lakes coming? Looks like you could get a boat backed into the south access on knife, just can't go anywhere from there laugh.gif Won't be too much longer, is a week asking too much?? How are the other lakes in the area? Come on sun/rain/wind, whatever works!!! grin.gif

From Rush Point Store:

4-4-06 Just watching the geese play in the open water! Ice continues to detriorate faster each day, can't wait to get the boat out! Not too much in the way of a fishing report..most people are content to count down the days to open water. One funny guy has been out playing in a flat bottomed boat...just having fun scooting the edges..Open water by Grass Island now....

East Rush Rules

Believe it or not, there was somebody out on East tonight!!! What a crazy person! He must be catchin something because he has been out there the last couple nights. I dont even know how he got out there, because from shore theres 9-12 ft of water, at least out from my house! The T channel is open, and i also think the other one is too. People were fishing in the T already, but no fish to be found.

Wow! Like you said ERR, he must be on a once-in-a-lifetime bite. Or, he wants one more bite in his lifetime. confused.gif

That is crazy... were they in a boat on the ice?

IF I had to guess, most of the ice will go off tonight if we get that 40 mph winds that chan 4 weather predicted...

Tonight! You think so. Dude, I'm floating the new boat on Sunday if things work out that way. I got to start the break in process on that dog.

I'm hoping in the next two days. I'd like to hit the park on West a week from tomorrow, take a Mental Health day.

Don't know were that dingbat got on, but I hope he at least was wearing an inflatable!

That guy apparently was a sight to see! He would push pole himself along the ice in a toboggan!

I might think about it in a kayak... tobogins still sink!!!! dude is nuts!

I pushed the season a little long a couple of years ago.. got on the ice no problem.. didn't get to within about 40 yards from shore on my way back in... went through 3 times before I finally made it to shore. That will never happen to me again. Not worth it to me!

More from Rush Point Store:

4-6-06 Lake looks like a giant rice krispie bar...a couple of guys have taken out a canoe and tried the back channels. Crappies are beginning to move up into them a bit during the day, but nothing to get too excited about. A drive around the area shows people fishing on the Goose Lake narrows, Fish Lake by Harris is opening, Center Lake has a northern bay open..Just a matter of days! If the rain hits tonite, maybe not even days!

I'm betting Forest Lake will be entirely open by the end of the weekend. About half of lake one was wide open with white caps today.

SoHaad,

In my estimation, the lake was over 3/4 open by town and will definatelay be open by the weekend. I had to go inspect the south shore area and found that one of the worst places that got hit by the floating icemass was within 1-200 yds of my parents shoreline, including a direct hit! OUCH! 6-7' of ice piled up on the shore. The lake will be open by the weekend for anyone that wants to get out and try out the new boat. !st lake ramp is open today but you would have to watch out for the floating ice pieces.

      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.

      Nice! Thx for sharing.  I have so many weird stories like that and it's nice to hear another strange one!  Great story and memory.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.
