Ya the only one I know is little rock too but on the minnesota dnr website they have ice out coverage and tell the statewide status of major lakes in the region. You should check it out! Updates every so often...

Ice is out on Achmann and a few small lakes in the Avon area. The Spunk lakes should open by the weekend.

Thought I'd add my 2cents and make this a stick thread since we are seeing ice on the lakes deteriorate! Plus some of us are itchin' to get on the open water when it's available!!

Thanks guys for the reports!

Shnieder (sp) on the horseshoe chain opened up over night. No ice in sight. Last night when I went to work it was about half covered.

Locke Lake (along I-94 south of Hasty) is open.... I'm guessing Sugar/Indian are as well.

      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.

      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 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.

      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.
