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...

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.

      Our last trip last year required driving through a snow storm! But that time of year is special!

      Will fish around Paynesville, Cass Lake and maybe Osakis.  I generally fish right up to freeze up/firearms deer season in the boat.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge

      I am spending Labor Day week on Kabetogama with my wife. Never been to Kab before so I am looking forward to hopefully figuring out a new lake with good multi-species potential. Any tips from anybody would be appreciated. After that it will be the anticipation of late October and Rainy River! That is probably my favorite trip of the year.

      A project to improve long-term water quality and wildlife habitat on Pelican Lake in Wright County may cause some short-term inconvenience for waterfowl hunters this fall, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  The public water access managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the west side of Pelican Lake will not be usable for boats larger than a canoe or kayak, due to lower water levels created by a drawdown of the lake. While boats may be launched from the state-managed public water access on the southwest side of the lake, parking there is limited. Parking is not allowed within the immediate ramp area; it also is prohibited along the shoulders of 40th Street Northeast, the adjacent road. The DNR is in the process of designing and constructing a new public boat access on the northwest corner of Pelican Lake.  The project will be started in the fall, but likely will not be completed this year. Some private lake access may be available by arrangement with local landowners; contact DNR area wildlife manager Fred Bengtson for more information: 320-223-7840. Pelican Lake is in the middle of a multi-year drawdown aimed at improving water quality and creating better habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. Once considered a waterfowl mecca, slowly rising water levels over some 30 years had killed much of the aquatic vegetation that stabilizes shoreline and provides needed food for migrating ducks. With help from Ducks Unlimited and constitutionally dedicated money from the Legacy Fund, an outlet was created for the lake in 2014 to lower water levels in several stages, with a pumping facility added in 2016. The drawdown will allow soils to consolidate and promote the growth of aquatic vegetation needed by ducks for food and habitat. In addition to providing critical waterfowl habitat, the project also will result in significantly cleaner water. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
