Surface Tension

No more wondering what day the ice will leave at the lake home.

South winds took care of the ice on Long Lake. Area lakes shouldn't be far behind.

Stopped by Pike lake today a little before noon and it had opened up a lot since yesterday and Pike is a late lake. I stopped at Grand lake on Monday morning and on the east side launch there was a few feet of open water. Pike is open about 30’ or more from the shore on the east side and with our temps will be a lot more by this evening. I’ll

probably check both again tomorrow and if I do I’ll report.

At 11am Grand was probably 50% open. Pike was about 20% and Caribou 20%. Kind of hard to tell because I was on the east side of each and the wind was out of the west, putting all the ice on the east side. The ice that is left on any of these lakes will not last more than two days at these temps.

Half Moon went out yesterday and I suspect St. Mary's and Ely will be going out today (they were just hanging on).

Ice is starting to pull away from shore on the Gunflint. Small and mid-size lakes should start opening up by monday or tuesday. smirk.gif

All the small lakes around Ely are out. Shag has lots of open water, and not just around shore/islands. I think it'll go out this weekend. Miners is more than half out. The strongs winds later this week really helped the warm temps get rid of ice. It's suppposed to be fairly windy today and tomorrow, too, but not as windy as it has been. Highs in the 60s again.

Burntside went out Friday night. Shag went out Saturday night. There's no ice in Van Vac Bay or the big way to the west of it on Bside, though there are isolated rafts of floating ice here and there in neckdown areas. Shag is almost completely ice free. Garden is wide open.

Ice season is OVER in God's country. grin.gif

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
