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.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      Fish went deeper durring the day today. Not easy cracking the code this year

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I just got a report from nextdoor that we have 8-10 inches.

      I noticed this morning that it had heaved out in Miller Bay kind of between the DNR access and Four Mile Bar. Really raising heck with my shore. Going to have to take a sledge hammer to my shore tomorrow so I can get out.
    • knoppers
      any current report on ice thickness around palisade?
    • PRO-V
      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.
